    So was channel hopping this evening and caught a few snippets of some episodes and I could identify the episode from a minute or less of the pre-title teaser even though I haven't seen at least one of the episode in over a decade.

    When you get into a public elevator, and say “Main bridge!”

    Or, if you’re of a TOS frame of mind, simply “Bridge!”

    Not that I’ve ever &c….

    Whenever I walk through motorized sliding doors, I'm thinking "swoosh..."

    Could be worse you could be saying transporter room.

    Though does anyone know why a US show uses the word 'lift' which is more of a British word rather than turbo-elevator? I'm guessing because turbolift sounds better.

    You know you've watched too much Star Trek when you read a thread called "You know you've watched too much Star Trek when".

    When a new Star Trek show does something that has a continuity error, and you're the first person to point it out to other Trek fans.

    Find me a man on this site who claims not to have impersonated Scotty in TVH and started going "Computer? Computer?" in to the mouse when it isn't working and I'll find you a liar

    You start insisting that family members use yellow, blue, or red toothbrushes (depending on what crew functions you see them in).

    Pointing out a continuity error even if they don't want or need you to do it?

    You've calculated that Zephram Cochrane's parents should be getting together in a few years

    Every time you see a Terms of Service, you're reminded of the 17th rule of acquisition.

    When you start making personal attacks against complete strangers on an internet bulletin board because they have the audacity to disagree with you about aspects of a fictional television show. That’s when you have to take a break, sit back, and really evaluate your life.

    When you get nervous while walking towards motorized sliding doors because you are worried that the stage hands won't pull them open in time.

    I was in an important business meeting, and someone was asking for more times to speak. I casually replied, “I give you 60 seconds…”

    You spend hours trying to create an in-universe explanation for how a 56 year old actor played a character that should have been 33...

    Effects of the war? Bad genes? Excessive drinking?
