    And BTW I like your username. Apparently we're both big into fantasy.

    Hello, my name is Tricia and I am new to this forum, but I like Star Trek, especially the original series. Lately I am paying close attention to Star Trek: Discovery and somewhat The Orville. Great television.

    Hey! I'm Lola and I was sent a link to this place by @KlingonCereal who I met on the Star Trek Discord! (I'm also a mod over there, you can find a link on reddit /r/StarTrek). I grew up with Voyager and am just getting into DS9. I also run a Star Trek forum roleplay site called Revolution Fleet.

    Suprised I've not come across this place before! It'll be nice to get into forums again :) this one seems pretty active and friendly

    Hi, long time lurker breaking his silence....

    My name is Matthew. I've been fairly new Trekkie since 2015, (in which it was the death of Leonard Nimoy that started the voyage for me...) And I've been on the Trek Path since then. I'm a good fan of TOS, TNG, VOY, and most of the Movies. And right now, I'm doing a fan art project of the Rule 63 (Genderbent) Kelvin Universe.

    Just wanted to introduce myself in the shortest possible way! Thanks!!

    Hey all, Nebraxis here. Been a fan of Trek 25+ years in all its mediums, although TOS is my least favourite. I can't put my finger on why, but try as I might I just can't seem to enjoy it as much as others.

    Other than that, I'm a general sci-fi and fantasy buff and while I would never claim to be a writer, I have been known to put pen to paper.

    See you around!!!

    Hello everyone. SenatorVreenak1 here. Long time sci fi and Star Trek fan here. My favorite eras of Star Trek are the TOS era, TOS movie era, and the "Berman era." In addition to Star Trek, I love Star Wars, Stargate SG1/Atlantis, Battlestar Galactica (both versions), Buck Rogers (1970s), Planet of the Apes, Terminator, Aliens, Predator, Westworld (original and HBO) and other franchises, that would likely be too numerous to list. I like fantasy and post apocalyptic stuff like Conan, Lord of the Rings, Walking Dead, Mad Max, as well.I also like shows like Breaking Bad, Fargo the series, Homeland, and Stranger Things.

    In my personal life I am sort of a secret geek, and I collect all kinds of things, including vintage GI Joe, vintage MOTU, G1 Transformers, and vintage Star Wars...mostly just figures, not play sets or vehicles. Also have an interest in history, museums, and anthropology, and I collect Kachina dolls, rare coins, and a small (under 75) comic book collection.

    I hope to converse with like-minded individuals, as I don't really have friends or coworkers into the same type of geeky things I am in to (hence my secret geekiness). :)

    Hi all, I'm Tory. Interestingly enough it was the JJ-verse films that got me first interested in Star Trek. I made the decision to watch the whole series in chronological (from release) order. So far I've made it through TOS, the first six movies, TAS and I'm currently in season 5 of TNG - which I'm really enjoying, despite it's bumpy start. I've heard good things about DS9, so I'm looking forward to getting into that once I've finished TNG and it's movies.

    Haha. Well, I've also heard it's one of the more divisive of the series. Clearly you sit on the other side of the fence. :lol:

    Well hey, you know, if you want to watch DS9 that's perfectly fine, of course; just bear in mind that it's not really Star Trek. It's really the Days of Our Lives that We Spent at the General Hospital Back When We Were Young and Restless disguised as Star Trek. :whistle:

    Hello friends,

    I'm hardly a newbie (just passed my fifteenth anniversary on this forum, omg!) but I haven't posted here since 2010. I fell away from all of my online communities due to some rough personal stuff that year, but Discovery has me back into Star Trek in a big bad way, and I've missed the discussions I used to have here when I was watching Enterprise as a teenager.

    I wonder if anyone here would even recognize me these days. :P

    Hello
    I am a Crazy about Star Trek.
    I have been watching Star Trek since I was about 9 years old.
    Ever since I seen it for the first time I couldn’t get enough.
    One of my wishes in this life is to get RICH and build my own set.
    It was a dream come true when I walked thru the sets for the first time.

    Hello.

    I remember my mother watching TNG and I would sometimes watch it with her. It didn't make much of an impression on me. I was not aware that there were series made after TNG until Netflix came around.It was not until years later when I was pregnant and on maternity leave that I watched TNG. Loved it. Just finished DS9 and found it more compelling than TNG, though I still dearly love TNG. Started Voyager this week. 5 episodes in, already annoyed.

    I was a wild teenager that morphed into a pretty calm mother of two. Married to a teacher, live in a suburb of NYC. Love craft beer, Phish, working out, hiking, and goofing around with my two little kids.

    I just finished it last week and loved it! Definitely different and it seems like people have pretty strong feelings around here one way or the other.

    Hi everyone!

    I realized I wanted to meet people online that would be in my age group that I could get along with, and really, the only thing (apart from Redlettermedia) was Star Trek.

    I'm not obsessed with Trek, but I like everything it represents and what it's always been more than ever. I grew up with the original cast films and only recently as an adult did I come to realize how amazing the lore and what it entails actually is.

    TL;DR: I wanted to meet fellow smart nerds my age, and you don't get much better than that by picking Star Trek.

    Hello All. I'm a Trekkie since early 2000s. Haven't really got into GTD before. Not even for lurking. But have frequented the Literature, Misc and TNZ forums. I'm an Indian living in India, so that probably makes me rare breed around here. I enjoy Trek in all its forms, usually don't analyze fiction too much. Just a light review or comment now and then.
