    I hate HowStuffWorks. Blocked it from my Facebook feed because the quality of quizzes is so bad, usually not even up to the standards of a dumb distraction.

    I got 44, and I’m 36.

    Looks like I’m the only one it got right, only because I’m a Age that it has as a option.

    That's what you get for liking old stuff.:rommie:
    Thank god there were no sitcom questions or my love for I love Lucy would have made them think I'm 80.

    I got:

    Your parents were the original Trekkies. You grew up watching reruns of the original series and vaguely remember first run episodes of "Star Trek: The Next Generation," "Star Trek: Voyager," and "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine." While you love "Star Trek: The Original Series," you will always be partial to Jean-Luc Picard and his crew.

    Yeah ... I'll always be partial to Jean-Luc Picard and his crew but that wasn't hard to guess considering I put TNG, Stewart, Picard etc., as my favorite every time a question like that popped up. Everything else is off, I don't love TOS, I don't barely remember first run episodes of TNG, DS9 and Voy, I remember them very well, my parents were aware of Star Trek before I started watching but not trekkies and still aren't and I'm not 31 although I wouldn't mind if I were.

    The year 2019 is the age of media overload filtered by critical acclaim, as opposed to “free” network TV that shapes one’s perceptions. The first Twilight Zone I watched was the 1980s revival, but there is no way it can beat Serling’s original.

    Most trekkies who hate NuTrek, or Discovery are mostly in their 50's or higher and male. I can guarantee it.

    People who don't like change, and who think everything needs to stay the same. Basically baby boomers. They also think TNG is the greatest thing since "sliced bread", and it did no wrong. Even though the first two seasons were atrocious, and find weird reasons to defend Star Trek V and Star Trek The Motion Picture. Which were both terribly written and edited movies.

    They also are children and refer to Discovery as "STD" even though, no Star Trek in history is abbreviated with "ST"

    Also they make a big deal about the Klingons hair in Disco, but forget what the Romulans hair was like in Star Trek V. How convenient.

    Same. And I just turned 47 last Thursday.
    I am unabashedly a TOS fan first and foremost. I just think it's the best overall show.

    But it was Star Trek III that debuted when I was 12, not TOS. I was -6 when TOS premiered and watched it when it was in syndication in the 70s. ;)

    Tells me, I'm forty four. Which is exactly double my actual age.

    I think TNG/DS9/VOY era is the heart, soul, and mind of the franchise, but I have enduring respect for TOS.

    "Star Trek" debuted when you were 12. Immediately, you were captivated by the adventures of James T. Kirk, Spock, Scotty, and the rest of the crew. You have seen the franchise go from one show that struggled in the ratings to a global phenomenon. While you appreciate the 80s and 90s "Star Trek" series, you will always have a soft spot for the series that started it all.

    I'm 46. I think that anyone who was and adult or close when when Next Generation dropped might just get herded into this range if they were already Trekies.

    I'm not even a fist shaking curmudgeon other than not being much on Enterprise though I like the uniforms.


    Next Generation
    Star Trek

    Discovery is pending


    Into Darkness
    First Contact
    Undiscovered Country
    Search for Spock
    Star Trek 2009

    Voyage Home (good Trek but meh movie)
    Generations (good flick but omitted from head cannon continuity because it leaves me believing Kirk and Picard are still in the Nexus and Jim will just get bored being dead one day and be back making breakfast and Picard is having his fantasy of keeping on keeping on).

    Motion picture


    And of course the other one that if forced I call "god" that is deleted from my whole existence other than the cool little camping scene to start.

    I got 64; ""Star Trek" debuted when you were 12." Actually I was 5 1/2 when it debuted, and at that age I had to watch what my parents watched, which certainly wasn't "Star Trek".

    Really don't get it, from pretty-strongly favoring the first two shows (and within the original Spock) I got 61 when I'm actually 30.

    I said TNG would be best for both marathoning and introducing someone new and had the best captain (though Worf the best character of the show) and uniforms though I picked the original series Enterprise as coolest ship.
    I picked the Dominion War wasn't for me, I liked parts of it it's just overall far from awesome.

    It might not make sense but we do need to respect the science used to get the results. Maybe eveyone who tested younger or older simple have a inner soul that doesn't match physical age. Jason
