Wow. I could quote several posts in this thread and say "me too". Instead, I'll waste bandwidth telling pretty much the same story a little differently. I was born in 1968. The first memories I have of television (black & white until my parents got a 25" color console in 1978) are of Sesame Street and Star Trek. I remember Star Trek being on TV every Monday through Friday at 7:00 pm during the 1970s. Since then, TV channels running ST: TOS reruns have been a little harder to find, but I bought TOS on DVD a couple of years ago and go through phases of watching it all the time and then not at all for a few years. I'm in a huge ST phase right now and just finished watching The Immunity Syndrome about 30 minutes ago. Why does Kirk call Kyle "Mr. Cowell" in this episode? Ah, who cares! I just love ST, and have all my life. For whatever it's worth, I've seen maybe five episodes of TNG. I watched it when it first came on (I was 19) and it seemed like a show for children. That's not intended as an insult to TNG fans - just my opinion. I've never watched VOY, DS9, or ENT. I have seen the TOS movies 1 though 5 but can't bring myself to watch 6. I guess I'm too much of a Kirk fan.
