    Rather a long time ago now, but I seem to remember it was something to do with Trek fiction and the (now long defunct) board I used to help run that led me here.

    At least you voted correctly. :D

    I participated in a couple of forums on AOL when I first joined the Internet back in 1993, and it took me a while to figure out how to best communicate and how to deal with the odd behaviors that one encounters. By the time I joined TrekBBS, I pretty much knew how to manage. So don't worry about it, it takes everyone a bit to learn how to function in this strange and disturbing world. :D

    When I first joined I made friends rather quick and settled in; I kind of took some time over the last year and posted sparsely but I'm working my way back in to the groove. I should be an Admiral in about 2 years if I can keep up the posting. :D

    I joined because I felt the need to communicate with people who share and understand my passion for Star Trek. And so far I find the TrekBBS to be a very comfortable place to be in. ;)

    Cardassian fanfiction. Googled it, and found a wonderful example of the above. I then went on from there.

    I joined TBBS to distract me from my life at the time.

    And it worked.

    I haven't come close to having a life again since.

    I was on several trek boards at the time because back then boards came and went in a matter of months or even weeks. Occasionally some would and still do stand up past a year or two but a lot of it was people migrating from one board to another. I registered here because it was the newest board and it had some inside information that was legitimate and somewhat exclusive. Nothing stays exclusive for long but at least here it seem to come out first, or at least most easily found.

    Ages ago, Ex Astris Scientia used to carry a feed of the TrekToday headlines on the front page. I followed it, found people discussing the news stories on TrekBBS, and I've been here ever since. Wish I could leave, but with all the blackmail T'Bonz has on me... :(

    It sure was a different world back then, too... Christian was still a public and active participant, Lisa was his right hand, Enterpriser was a moderator, some guy called Mr. Stinky Pants was salivating with anticipation over the long-awaited director's cut of Star Trek: The Motion Picture, and TNZ denizens were treated to the amusing antics of one Major Barcalow.
