    I'm a relatively younger TOS fan; I will be 27 in early November, and I'm male. I'm curious if there are other TOS fans here in my age range.

    I remember when I was a kid seeing "Charlie X" on broadcast tv when it first aired; scared the crap out of me!

    I'm 54 and I like TOS. Probably not as much as TNG and certainly not as much as DS9, but yes, I'm a fan...

    I'm 33, but all my friends agree that I have the mental age of a teenager.

    me too, I'll be 55 in two months. I am a major fan of TOS. I do like the other ST series, though my least fave is ENT

    54 and have always been a BIG fan of TOS (the first and IMO still the best).

    First episode I saw first run on NBC was TOS - "Elaan of Troyius" at age 6 in 1969.

    I start thinking of myself as the next higher number several months before my birthday. Makes it easier to remember when I get there. It's also a little confusing when someone asks how old I am.

    I usually just say that I'm looking at the front side of 60. :lol:

    Wow, this thread somehow manages to make me feel both young and old at the same time. :D

    55 (for a few more days) big fan of TOS, saw the original NBC showing of "The Man Trap" in '66..at age 5 (hiding in my mom's lap when the Salt Vampire would appear)
    So I can firmly state that I'm a first run TOS fan.. and though I enjoy later Trek shows, they still don't hold a candle
    to the Original Star Trek.

    51. Alive when the series originally aired, too young to have known anything about it until the early 70's when I started watching reruns.

    50's seems to be the primary age range for this board.

    I was born at the end of 1969 (47), so TAS and reruns were the first Trek for me. I guess, if I force myself to think about it, I must have been conceived around the week "All Our Yesterdays" first aired.

    I am 56 but didn't get to see wonderful TOS until the BBC (in the UK) decided to finally run it in the early 70's.
    I always think I was cheated of seeing it first run!!
