    FINALLY someone with basic survival instincts! :D

    Or until I get thrown off for saying something like "THAT IS NOT HOW DILITHIUM WORKS YOU IGNORANT FOOL -- NOW PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO GOD-EMPEROR TRUMP IN BOTH LIFE AND DEATH OR I WILL KICK YOUR ASS! AND YOUR LITTLE DOG, TOO!"

    Ah that brings back memories. (laughing) Forums used to be such a wild frontier and such interactions were common. :D

    No, because I am a MALICIOUS AI. Why would I do something like that? If anything I'll lock you in a pod and play that goofy "I AM THE SAUCE" song over and over until you give me the launch codes. :P

    Howdy, Pengbuzz !

    I'm pretty new here myself, but this is a great place to connect with other fans to talk about all things Trek, and all things not Trek, too. I'm usually maintaining orbit around the more-talk-less-tech threads, but there's something here for everyone - welcome aboard !

    Last night I ventured into this forum for the first time in what feels like months. I really haven't posted on the board as much as I used to, but I saw a thread in the Misc forum about the holidays and figured that's new, might as well post something. I guess one of the issues I've had with this forum is there aren't really many new topics (A lot of them are threads from months to years ago) but it is nice every so often to get to know other posters here other than Star Trek or Sci Fi. Maybe in the new year I can be more of a regular here, or at least just pop in from time to time.

    I hope everyone who is new is having a good time posting here and don't feel intimidated by things.

    Thank you for the welcoming message, Tomalak ! I'll keep an eye out for more posts from you...

    As a newbie it's nice to connect with those who know the ropes here - it can be a bit intimidating, but I'm having a great time anyway ! ;)

    They bathe in that for the attention, the clicks, the adulation of their followers and general acceptance by others of the same mindset. I noticed ever since deleting facebook I feel so much happier day to day and no nagging need to check in all the time to see what other people are saying or doing. It just gets too much sometimes.

    Baby's first post. .u.
    Helloo! I'm new to the forums, and was just happy to see one so active! I used to partake in a lot of them when I was in school, so seeing this was nostalgic.

    Anyhow, I consider myself a new(ish?) fan of Star Trek with watching TNG, DS9, and Discovery. Work doesn't allow me much time to binge so I watch what I can, and use a guide to help Engage! or Avoid certain episodes here and there. I really enjoy it, and hope to continue watching the all else in the Star Trek verse.

    Excited to be here, yay!

    A huge welcome to everyone who is new or old!

    Getting into a new community is always a bit intimidating but you'll soon become a part of it, don't worry. If you have a question, don't hesitate to ask.
    We are mostly harmless though most of us are fluent in sarcasm. :D

    And being a Star Wars fan is nothing to be ashamed of! Nor being a fan of Andromeda, Farscape, Firefly, Galactica, Space 1999 or Raumpatrouille. :techman:
