Discussion in 'Star Trek: Enterprise' started by Top41, Dec 18, 2003.
Well, against my non-existant better judgement, here's my spiel;
My real name is Don and I'm 42. I work doing catch-all computer work at my local community college (where I got my A.A.S. in Computer Information Systems), doing web design, database creation, local computer guru (that's what they call me, definately not my opinion of myself).
Currently, I'm single and plan on remaining that way, after having my heart powdered by my last girlfriend.
I've watched Star Trek since the early '70s when it first went into syndication, tho I did catch some first run eps, but only bits (I was like, 6), been watching ever since. I used to collect all the stuff, models, books, MEGO communicator walkie-talkies, etc., but now I think it's a big waste and have sold most of my stuff on ebay, it's the show that matters.
I enjoy hanging out at the TrekBBS cuz there are a lot of folks here who share my sense of humor, and some who don't, so it's fun to annoy them.
I'm also into LOTR, classic punk (iggy, ramones, clash, yadda), u2, beatles, but I also enjoy native american music too, as I am half Mohawk, I have been to many Iroquois festivals and the yearly powwow, Joanne Shenendoah is my favorite and I wish Robbie Robertson were my dad. Monty Python and Fireside Theatre are what I suppose people would say warped me.
Well, enough about me. Now back to your regularly scheduled whatever.
My real name is Erik and I'm 23.
I was born near Boston and raised on Cape Cod (in the town of Mashpee, if you care), by a pair of slightly hippy-ish musicians (a violinist and a violist to be exact). My dad is also a teacher and my mom is also a title examiner (which is called an abstractor in other states). My obsession in high school was technical theater (lights and set design and such), but I haven't done much of it since then.
I went to school at Grinnell College, in Iowa, where I majored in history. Graduated in 2002. Now I'm the assistant news editor of a small (circulation 3,500) daily newspaper in a small (population 10,000) southeast Iowa town. I love my career and alternately love and hate my job.
My first exposure to Trek was TNG, which I watched with my parents every Saturday night for almost its entire run.
I live alone in a one-bedroom apartment which is perpetually cluttered.
I like the Beatles and bad 1980s pop. Also random folk bands/singers. Dar Williams, Greg Brown and Eddie From Ohio are at the top of the list right now.
I only get one TV station -- KYOU Fox 15, "Fox for the Heartland" -- and am addicted to Friends, That '70s Show, and The O.C.
I'm a chick -- 33 years old, married for about five years and work as a Web person/writer for a company in Portland, Oregon. Graduated with a degree in English and History in a state far. far away that looks something like the Deathstar.
I love science fiction in almost every format. And I've been watching Star Trek since I was about 7 years old; I had a crush on Mr. Spock and thought the stories were wonderful! And now ... here I am. I've loved almost all of the Treks (except VOY).
Favorite characters include Spock, Picard, Data, Archer, Kirk, Phlox, Dax and Worf.
What state looks like the DeathStar??
Gotta be New Jersey.
My name's Charlotte, I'm 21 and I'm from Ireland (any other Irish people here?).
I'm in my last year of college (unless I go on to do a masters, which is looking very likely at the moment) where I'm hoping to get a BSc in Statistics, which is not the same as a BA in Statistics, you know.
I'm also an amateur screenwriter on the side, but I've had to put that on hold for a while until after my exams.
I've been watching trek for as far back as I can remember. My oldest brother was very into it so he got the rest of us kids watching it too! I loved TNG and DS9, Voyager - not so much, but I was watching repeats of it recently and I've begun to appreciate it a bit more. I haven't seen may TOS episodes but I'm hoping they'll get repeated again so I can see how it all began.
I'm Steve, 29, married for 7 years, have a 5 yr old daughter and a boy in the oven. Yay!!
I'm a parts manager at my local Ford dealership, have been for close to 10 years. I enjoy computers, golf, Miller lite, cars, working with tools, and games.
A boy in the oven? Do you really think you should admit to broiling children in a public forum (or possibly an Amana)?
The wife is stagnant. 3 more months and I'll be riding the zombie train.
My grandfather was born there; does that count?
Hi my name is Joel ... I'm 29, currently working for Nestle. I do watch Enterprise, but DS9 is still my fave. A huge fan of 24.
Texas. But, New Jersey was a good guess.
Yeah, I'll accept that.
I'm just a cool trek dude.
My name is Prince and I am funky. Actually my name is Mike and I'm not all that funky. I'm 44, married for 10 years and a male. There was some confusion early on because of my use the the name "Nerys", which is a near homophone of my real last name. Also I was quite fond of Kira Nerys on DS9.
I've been watching Trek since the late 1960s. Currently I rank them as follows:
I have a degree in art, which looks pretty on the wall, but is useless in my current job.
I read a lot of science fiction and some of my favorite writers are: Frank Herbert, David Brin, Arthur C. Clark and Phillip Jose Farmer. Lately I been re-reading Dickson's Dorsai series. The Dark Tower series by Stephen King and The Song of Fire and Ice series by George R.R. Martin are a couple of non-SF series I've enjoyed recently. In the non-fiction area the last book I read was "Guns, Germs and Steel".
I dont watch much TV. Enterprise, the West Wing, Friends, Scrubs and American Dreams are about it. I'd probably watch more, but I dont have the time. My other interest include comic books, film, and computer graphics (My mother doesn't even have a basement! ) My wonderful Star Trek Website can be found at www.geocities.com/comike1
Oh yeah, I'm also a big Beatles fan. Though most of the music I listen to these days is what's called "Alternative Rock or "Modern Rock" some of which is twenty years old
My name is Teresa from New York and I am 40, but usually I am referred to as TRAP because I use all four names I was born with...guess I could relate to TRIP.
I used to watch TOS because I love the relationship betwen Spock and Kirk, but mostly because of Spock.
I decided to watch ENT because i heard Scott Bakula would play the captain.
I work as a Sales promotion Asst, so i have many opinions on how the show show be promoted.
I love Sci-Fi, some of my favorites are Alien Nation (Gary Graham), Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, Angel (but not the latest season), Hercules, Now and Again (Eric Close), V the Series, original BattleStar Galactica, Andromeda (but not this season), and of course Quantum Leap (Scott Bakula).
I enjoy writing, photography, and traveling.
Great thread! I've been coming here for two years now, and many of you I've come to know and recognize throughout the board, but it's nice to get to know everyone a little better, "bashers" and "gushers" alike.
I'm Kevin, I'm 17 years old, and I live in Miami, FL.
I got my first taste of Trek about six or seven years ago when I caught The Voyage Home on TV. I loved the movie, but I didn't really get into the swing of things until Enterprise premiered. I was really into Quantum Leap, and I heard Scott Bakula was going to be cast on the new Trek show. I decided to check it out, and I liked it, so here I am!
I got interested in the other Trek shows, as well, though I'm not quite sure which are my favorites. I really love Enterprise, despite its problems, but I've also enjoyed the little bit of DS9 I've seen. I like all of them in way or another.
My hobbies are sci-fi (obviously), computers, graphic design, and writing and screenwriting. Enterprise kind of inspired my interest in the latter two. I'd be a little unsatisfied with something they did on the show, and sometimes I'd get (what I thought were) better ideas for stories. (After reading this thread, I see I'm not the only one. )I wanted to try to learn how to write a few, even if no one other than myself ever saw them.
Well, I don't post in the ENT forum that much (mainly just 6-7 posts after each new episode airs) cus I'm usually tied up elsewhere on the board. But I have been watching the show, for the most part, so I'll go ahead and post here.
I've been watching Star Trek since I was a small child. In fact, I really can't remember life without Trek! Spock was my earliest childhood hero, and I enjoy all the Trek series, to greater or lesser degrees.
DS9 is definitely my favorite Trek. TOS is probably second. I love TNG, despite the a-little-too-utopian-outlook of it...and I love VOY as well, despite the last two seasons, which IMO were a disappointment.
I have to admit not really being able to connect with ENT yet. The first season was okay, but the second season was so bad that I actually stopped watching for a while. However, I have been watching season 3, and I'm very pleased to say that IMO, it has improved this year. I just hope the trend continues. cus I'd really love to see the show succeed!
But really, with the exception of DS9, my favorite scifi TV shows are outside the confines of Trek. I'm a huge fan of Babylon 5, Farscape and Buffy. And really, prefer these shows to any of the Trek shows, save DS9.
I also love alot of scifi movies, a few non-scifi shows (24, The Sopranos, Sex and the City), reading, and playing The Sims in my free time.
And of course, I'm a regular here at TrekBBS, which takes up a fair amount of my time! I've really enjoyed my time as a part of this community, and hope that all of you do as well!
Hi, My name is Tom. I am 32 years old. I am married with 3 kids and live in the Boston area. I am a network administrator for a multi location company. I'v been a sci-fi fan since my father took me to see Star Wars when I was 6 and the Star Trek:TMP and BSG movies in 1978. I have been 98% able to watch all first run episodes of Trek (TNG, DS9, Voy and Ent) since "Encounter at Farpoint " in 1987. My other top favorites shows are (or have been): Stargate, DR. Who, Babylon5, Quantum Leap I also have liked Farscape, Lexx, Blakes 7, Star Blazers Cartoon (when I was little), Crusade, BSG, both CSI shows, and so many more. My favorite Sci-fi/fantasy movies are : Star Wars OT and PT, Back to the Future Trilogy, Matrix, Indiana Jones, Star Trek Movies, LOTR trilogy, Terminator Films, James Bond Films and many more. I also activly participate in other B Boards like Stargate (at scifi.com) and Stars Wars (at theforce.net). This trekbbs board by far has the best structure and moderation. I also am a big Baseball (Red Sox) and Football (Patriots) Fan as well.
