    Hey All,
    I'm (mostly) new to this forum--I haven't been on in over a decade...so, new again?
    I'm an actor and writer located in Los Angeles, originally from Miami.
    I was raised on the TOS movies (80's child) but watched and loved every subsequent television and movie series as they premiered.
    The first ST film I ever saw in the theater was Star Trek V--yeah, just my luck, but as a consequence I now have a soft spot in my heart for it.
    Now I have my own kids and am eagerly indoctrinating them into the Star Trek universe.
    Looking forward to getting to know everyone on the boards!

    Hello Fellow Trek Fans,

    I been a fan since TOS went into syndication in the 70s. I have seen every Trek episode and movie. I am a big fan of TOS, The Animated Series, DS9 and DISCO. I like TNG but not as much as the series I just mentioned. I am not a great admirer of VOY, ENT or the Kelvin Timeline but find some entertainment value in them.

    I like other science fiction and have been a comic book fan most of my life.

    I became a fan of MMA when I was surfing channels in 2011 and caught a replay of an Anderson Silva fight. Grew up watching boxing but now love watching MMA more.

    I work as a Computer Specialist.

    I hope to engage in some polite intelligent conversations here.

    Live long and prosper!

    Welcome to the Newbies! I joined late last year as a Christmas present to myself. It's like taking an extended Star Trek vacation. Keep it light and happy. I love "meeting" new friends with similar interests. Great site!

    Hi! I'm brand new to this board, but not to Trek. (I have been searching for a fandom space since the death of LJ/DW and frankly, a lot of them are an illustration in Why People Hate Trekkies.)

    My name is Kris, I live in Seattle, and I'm an actor/fan/nerd person. My most public connection to Trek is the show I co-produced and starred in for eight years, Outdoor Trek by Hello Earth Productions. I played Kirk in a show which tried to envision episodes of TOS for the stage, as modern and relevant and fun.

    I think all Trek is good Trek, even if I don't like all of it, and my allegiance is mostly with TOS and DS9, with VOY coming in third. This is, I think, a little outside the norm as I grew up on TNG in the 80s/90s, but I cannot deny the magic of Shatner and the progressive idealism best illustrated (IMO) in the original flavor. But I love discussing media of all types, and I hope to have some good conversation, here.

    Howdy, new to this board, longtime fan of Trek. My name is Will, sometimes known as Grim, and I'm primarily an artist and writer hoping to put out a few comics and video games before I kick the bucket. Never really ventured into Trek fandom before now, looking forward to my time here!

    Hey Grimusaur!
    I'm new as well. A big fan of TOS, TNG being my second favorite. I am a daddy of four daughters (all of whom have seen at least a bit of TOS, and all of whom have played AD&D, 1E of course :lol: ) and a happy husband - so, yes, severely outnumbered in my home.
    Besides Star Trek and Dungeons & Dragons, I enjoy lots of different types of music, but in particular Jethro Tull. :D I'm a social worker in New Jersey, and I'm glad to be here!
    Be well all,
    --Ron--

    I've sent an email to the admin last week, haven't heard back, so I figured I'd ask here. At what point will I be able to change my avatar and send PMs? Thanks,

    I believe it is 14 days and 14 posts. Looks like probably tomorrow you should be good to go.

    And FYI, we have a Questions Forum, located here:

    Whoops, my apologies on both mistakes. Thank you for the information. Not sure how I subtracted 7 days from the 14, ugh.

    I was told there wouldn't be any maths involved; I might be in trouble!

    Hi, my name is Tom and I've been a Trek fan since I was a kid. Since I'm in my 50's now, that's a long time! TOS is my favorite followed by TNG. I like all of the other incarnations, to varying degrees. One of my other hobbies is collecting 1/6th scale (12 inch) action figures. So the recent releases of very detailed and accurate figures by Quantum Mechanix is a dream come true for me. This forum has come up on my searches many times as I've sought to find details on some of the props. I'm newbie 3D printer so I'm trying to add some more accessories for my figures. There isn't, by chance, a sub-forum for toys/figures?

    I live in Minnesota in the US and am looking forward to hanging out and soaking up some good Trek stuff!

    Thanks!

    Tom

    Hello all,

    Name's Matthew. I've been into Trek for a few years now. It started with the Kelvin films which peaked my interest in the series. I moved onto ToS and haven't looked back. I love ST Timelines and Star Trek Online, re-watching the shows, and trying to bring my friends over. I'm a part of STARFLEET International and collect anything to do with Star Trek.

    Outside of Trek, I am a school teacher. I am working on year 1 of marriage (Sept 1st makes 1 year), have 3 cats, a dog, and a gerbil, and love to read. I also enjoy gaming.

    I look forward to getting to know everyone!

    Matthew

    Hi! I was a member of TrekBBS many years ago but I never really posted much. I was born in 1966 and the earliest TV memories I have are of Star Trek. The first book I ever bought was James Blish's Star Trek 10. My first model was a Klingon D7 kit from AMT ( only because the Enterprise wasn't available). I am pretty much a fan of all things Trek. I look forward to spending much time here and discussing my favorite topic. Thanks for accepting me.

    Hello everyone!
    I found this while searching for Star Trek groups and I thought I'd join up. My favorite series is TOS, with DS9 a very close second. Don't be shy, say hi!
