    Hi everyone
    I began my trek days with TNG and then VOY but Picard defo holds a firm place in my heart. I often watch other captain's doing their thing, and think 'What would Picard do?'. Some times it makes me think that he's a bit of a square, but we all are sometimes.

    I'm watching DS9 for the first time at the moment and can see some TNG in the early episodes.

    Anyway, looking forward to hearing the discussion

    Hello, my name is Emily and I'm turning 19 in a few days. I'm Canadian!

    I love star trek the next generation, it's my favorite tv show! What i like the most is following Beverly and Jean-Luc's relationship, because they are my relationship goal. Beverly is my favorite character, because she reminds me of myself. We both like dancing and we like theatre. I always wanted to be a doctor, but it's really hard to become one. So i'm curently studying to become a nurse! We are both reserved at first, but when you get to know us, you're starting to realize that we like to tease you. We are calm and caring and were not afraid to speak the truth. And there's much more!

    Honestly I like every single crew member and their personality! I wish this TV show was a reality show so i could join the crew and be a nurse for the Enterprise!

    My favorite episode is Causes and Effect, because i laugh everytime the day starts over. I also like Attached, because its a Picard/Crusher episode!

    So if you are still trying find your Beverly, just to let you know that I'm still looking for my Jean-Luc :)

    Hope you have a great day!

    Emily

    Hey everyone!
    I just found this forum a few weeks back and think it's great! I'm glad I've finally registered here.

    About myself: As a small child I remember seeing reruns of TOS occasionally. I thought Captain Kirk was cool, and the adventure-in-space aspect was neat, but I wasn't a big fan because the show looked too old school to me. I remember catching the premiere of ST:TNG (actually the first rerun of it) and thought it was all wrong. They shouldn't have picked an old man to be the Captain, he's bald! Why not make that Riker guy the captain!? He even looks like Captain Kirk!
    I ended up watching the reruns anyway, and eventually the first run episodes every Saturday at 7:00 PM. I didn't consider myself a Trekkie or Star Trek fan, but I started to really enjoy the show, and ended up watching most of the 7 seasons. The finale was exceptionally good.

    I watched a few episodes of DS9, thought it was only so-so. A coupler of Voyager episodes too.
    Never saw the TOS films, or the TNG ones.

    I've just recently started watching the various TOS films and I really, really liked them. Then I moved on to binge watching ST:TNG, and now I'm moving on to DS9 and TOS.

    What I like most about Star Trek is the optimism and the idealism of the series, particularly in TNG. I also like that it's a mainstream SF series that's less about action and more focused on knowledge and exploration. Episodes that deal with Picard's love of archaeology, or cadets trying to succeed in Starfleet are really inspirational to me.

    After watching all these ST episodes recently, and reading the forums here, I feel like I've been introduced to Star Trek for the first time. My next mission is obtaining the DC Comics' series.

    I remember the original series when it came out, thats about the time when Batman and Green Hornet came out, the promos for the sires showed Spock with the ears and as a kid, this was very strange to me, I don't think I really watched the show as a kid. I guess in reruns I grew into it.

    So when TNG came on I was impressed and watched it.

    Later on a friend and I went to Vegas and went to the Experience, that was all fun. Sorry to see that go and attempts to bring it back havent worked out.

    Hello!

    I'm Ethan from Baltimore and I just started my TNG journey (5 minutes into the 2nd episode). While I enjoy Picard and Ryker's characters, I'm interested in seeing how Wes Crusher develops over the show, since he seems to have a lot of potential.

    Woops, didn't mean to post that all by itself. But honestly, the MOMENT I read that, that's the exact picture I thought it would be before I clicked on it. Hilarious.

    I was born in the early 80s. TNG was my introduction to the world of Star Trek. I had seen a couple of old TOS episodes here and there but it seemed like I was always catching just pieces of the show. Depending on the the day I switch between DS9 and TNG as my favorite Star Trek series. I own TNG on Blu Ray and the difference between the remastered and original version is kind of crazy. Over the last year I have been re-watching all of the Star Trek shows/movies. I am 342 episodes and 13 movies into the re-watch. I remember the first two seasons of TNG being the slow points of the show and that hasn't changed during my re-watch. My favorite TNG episdoes are Yesterdays Enterprise, The Inner Light and All Good Things... I am very thankful for Star Trek as a whole and I have a special place in my heart for TNG!

    Hello, all! I began watching TNG when it premiered in '87, having loved TOS and the animated series. If I had to choose favorite characters on the show, Picard, Data, and Deanna Troi rank in the top, not necessarily in that order. Guest alien favorites...Traveler and Q.

    So I finally wrapped up on TNG today and I have to say, All Good Things easily landed right up there with my top favorite episodes. I'll admit I judged the series pretty harsh in the past, but it's a solid show.

    You never forget your first love and The Next Generation was the first TV show I could really say I loved deeply as a teenager. Patrick Stewart and Picard was just another level of reality entirely from any other character I'd ever seen before (and maybe since.) He just WAS Picard, and Picard was real, and Picard had all the answers.
    There were lots of other qualities to the series that also made in shine, but that character and its sense of integrity and presence and class....just amazing!!!

    There'll never be another show like TNG!

    Long time fan. Started watching the classic series during the '80's when it was run on prime-time Australian TV. I refuse to call it the Original Series, The Original Series. It was called "Star Trek" for a reason.

    i then started watching "Star Trek The Next Generation" afterwards when it also aired on prime-time, before being delegated to the midnight laughable time-slot. I missed out on a lot of episodes thanks to Australian TV stupidity, but I'm glad for home entertainment.

    Now, I'm re-watching all the series again and again. As you can tell by my profile picture, a huge fan. :)
