Happy New Year and welcome to the board, Lt Johnny!
Hey there, fellow TNG fan! Happy new year to you also!
Welcome and Happy New Year!
Thanks for the nice and friendly welcome! I feel at home already.
Major star trek fan here I grew up with the reruns of the original series and my family called me Spock growing up. (still do) I watched the TNG later on in life and now introducing them to my daughter. I am a big Picard fam and enjoy saying make it so or make it happen. I am also a star wars fan but more of a trekkie. We are also potterheads at my house too so if our star trek and star wars quotes do not annoy you, our happy potter ones sure will. People probably think I am totally odd.
Hello everyone! I am a big Star Trek fan. Oddly enough I didn't even know this BBS existed until a friendly Redditor let me know you folks were here. So here I am! I enjoy all the series and grew up/ got started on TNG although I'm sure I must have seen some of the TOS movies before that. Looking forward to healthy discussion especially on all the new series coming out. But I'll be all over the TNG, DS9, VOY, ENT forums as well!
Welcome aboard! Always a pleasure to meet someone with a TNG-related username!
I did not know this existed either. I am glad it was found.
Welcome to both of you, Q_the_Misanthrope and Capt. Moon! I look forward to learning more about your views of TNG.
welcome to the forum.. it is really a great place to have fun... there are many things to see and post and interact.. it's wonderful here.. enjoy.
Extending a welcome to you as well Lt. Johnny .. enjoy the posts here..
I grew up seeing the tale end of the original series first airing then it was all the reruns over and over.. It was great.. I am glad you are here .. too. Welcome
Welcome as well.. --- I had started with these shows watching when ever I could.. --- whatever was star trek.. and science fiction.. I was part of a sim group that tried to invite members of Trekbbs to the sim site but after I posted a few times in the forum I was hooked to this site. I have since stopped writing trek simulations and just post here.. --- there is also stuff like that going on here.. Welcome to the forum.
Welcome Cpt. Moon --- welcome again it has been here for a long time.. and still is amazing and growing by leaps and bounds.---
It is recommended to get to know people in the lounges area and such .. at first though I had stayed there too long now..--
I am new to this part of the forum I mostly post in misc TNZ - and the lounges.. making games for post and play.--- I have started to rewatch the TNG .. episode by episode I am not sure if I have seen all the episodes or even if I can remember them and their details so the all access CBS channel on the computer works well and I do wait for discovery to return .. that is amazing stuff. -- in the meantime hopefully I can watch TNG in it's completeness. I skipped thru the first season having had those episodes mostly on vhs tapes back in the 90's about.. but did not complete my collection of tapes.. (due to money) --- and such.. --- although I did watch the ones I had over and over.. --- since ondemand was not a thing back then.. --- I just watched Season 3 episode 25 that is where I am at now that was Transfigurations that I saw but the details I did not remember.. -- I do at least 2-3 episodes everyday....//
I am glad the forum has this section here to post things and read in the second monitor while I watch TNG in the first monitor of mine..---
Hello! I’m Delaney and tng is my favorite of all the Star Trek series! I’ve watched it ever since I was 8 and when I was younger I LOVED Dianna, but now Beverly is my favorite character of all time. I love to talk about her and Picard’s relationship (I know it’s cringey but I don’t care)
I got to see Jonathan Frakes at Comic Con a few years ago and it was really cool! He was a really nice person and had a good sense of humor.
I love character driven episodes, and my favorite visiting character is Mrs. Troi (I didn’t want to try to spell her first name)
I’m new to this website, so nice to meet all of you!
Hello! Long time Trek fan and lurker here. I made my account ages ago but never really posted much. But I did follow a lot of threads. Glad these boards still exist and that Trek is experiencing a resurgence of new "TV" shows. DS9 and TNG were always my favorite Trek shows with Data being my favorite Trek character of all-time. Worf and Troi are also big favorites of mine, with Picard probably being my favorite captain. So perhaps excitement for the new show has brought me back. I'm honestly still not over Data's death in Nemesis, but I love the idea of Data's legacy and all the issues surrounding artificial intelligence being explored in the new show. I finished up a DS9 rewatch last year. Hoping to start a TNG one at some point soon. Will hopefully post my opinions when I do, cuz I honestly don't think I've ever done a full rewatch since the 90s. Anyway, just wanted to say hi and engage in a bit of conversation from time to time, especially as we are finally seeing TNG characters back on the small screen, it's good to look back and remember what made those characters so great in the first place.
Hi Spot! Great to meet you! (Love the username btw.)
I'm jlwn111 aka "Claire from NJ" (Trek/SternShow crossover fans may know of me as a former regular caller to the show) and I'm a life-long TREK fan. Here's a BIO blurb for you (from my Twitter) --->
NW NJ Native, Left-handed Aries Vegan, #G2KU Host, aka #JimJahlon, aka #StullDemon, author of #the111experience, #HowEverythingWorks Sr. Architect, Performance Artist, Actor/Vocalist
Nice to meet you!
Too bad you don't have anything to do.
BTW, welcome to TNG, it'll be fun here.
Thank you? Yes, thank you. Say, have you re-watched "Measure of a Man" to re-familiarize yourself with Bruce Maddox? (PICARD/TNG crossover question)
Measure of a Man was the first ep of TNG I ever watched (long story). It cemented my love of the show in an immediate and lasting way. I'm up to date on Picard and almost jumped out of my chair (slowly like the old guy I am) when Maddox' name was mentioned.
That is a *very* interesting synchronicity!
Thanks Mutai Sho-Rin & everyone else who responded to my initial post! I'm just doing a quick "check-in" to reassure everyone that I am still watching AND I'm falling more (and more... and more!) in love with the show, the writing, the acting, the universe... It's a marvel.
I've been watching as much as possible, tho sometimes it has been in fits and spurts. I just completed Season 6, Episode 19 "Lessons", and wow... what another incredible storyline. I can honestly say that I'm never quite sure where an episode will end up, and "Lessons" was no exception.
My only gripe is... now I'm falling way behind (haha)! I have the rest of TNG, then Deep Space Nine, Voyager, Enterprise, Discovery, and now Picard?! I have my work cut out for me haha.
Still, I think I'll be ready to get more involved in the community once I've completed TNG. For some reason, finishing that series without any spoilers feels like such a personal journey to me, and I just can't help myself.
Thanks again for the replies & words of welcome, and I'll be back in another couple months (or so) to catch up. Cheers!
I was really happy for that continuity but I was also griping internally about the lack of mention of Lal. Hopefully she isn't forgotten, but, dunno.
Not mentioning her does simplify storytelling, though.
