Question

Any other Star Trek fans out there?


Any of the series, tos, tng, DS9, or Voyager. I'm a Trekker, mostly tng but also tos and the others. Just got my own tng the complete series DVDs, 49 discs... I'm in heaven!

I like their version of our future... peace and no hunger or fighting. Anyone else out there a Trekker?

The Next Generation all the way.

I haven't seen it in a while, but what a great show.

Voyager wasn't too bad, either.

I've been watching from the beginning. TNG is my favorite too.

Star Trek came out about the same time as the Twilight Zone, Lost in Space, and the old Outer Limits.

Trekker is the new word they use, but it will always be Trekkie to me.

I actually got in an argument over that in a Matinée one day. Some dumb kid snubbed his nose and rolled his eyes at me when I used "Trekkie". I just ended up telling him I never started with a rerun, lol, and it was "Trekkie" before he was born. I don't care what anyone calls it, just don't tell me I'm wrong.

I think that makes me a die hard fan.

I must say I've 'trekked' myself into a trekkian coma. I got in the mail last Thursday the pkg I've been wanting for nearly a year: the Star Trek tng complete series on DVD! I've been saving money for months and finally had enough to order it. I've been watching it since last Thursday and catching up on all the episodes I hadn't seen for years.

Now I'm watching "I, Borg", one of my favorites. Star Trek is how I fall asleep at night. I put in a tape and just listen to it cause the tape rolls so bad in my old VCR. So I just listen to it til I fall asleep! I'm addicted badly, cause I watch the same tapes over and over...

Glad to know I'm not alone! Who were your favorite characters, in any series? Mine were Spock in tos and Data and Worf in tng. Also Dax in DS9 and Seven of Nine in Voyager. I still find Spock/Nimoy to be one of the sexiest men alive.http://www.veoh.com/collection/CBS-T...cmp=lassienew#

Back to my ST marathon...


I've got some DVDs of old Twilight Zone episodes and Night Gallery too. Rod Serling is "it"!! Here is a link to some fifty Twilight Zone episodes you can watch on the net.

I absolutely loved TNG series when it was in syndication. Recently, I've been watching TOS episodes, really for the first time (well now, second or third). I'm kinda depressed that there aren't any more new episodes, lol... I was going to sleep to them for a while too, with my computer on the Joost Star Trek channel, playing episodes back to back.

I liked all of the characters of TNG...that was a big part of the appeal. Great actors and wonderful story lines...that's so hard to find now.

Enterprise is the only series I didn't like. I think it was due to the captain and the other role I associated him with. I wish they had used an unknown for that role.

The new movie is coming out soon. It looks pretty good.

I had major problems with that for a while as well. I do wish they had gone with an unknown.

I'm a big Trekkie, in fact I just finished the TNG DVD set again, and we have all the movies as well. I want the TOS on DVD as well. Those are my favorite series. I wasn't a big Berman fan.

As for the new movie, I'm counting down the days

I'm a big fan of tos and tng. Seems to me the ds9 lost some of its appeal because they were always at the same place. Not enough space ship action. And Voyager was okay, but I wasn't a big Captain Janeway fan. Captain Kirk and Picard wouldn't put up with some of the crap that happened on Voyager either. I guess Spock is still my all-time favorite character, also liked the gal with the borg implants, can't remember her name tho. Gotta love those borg implants! Lynx

Seven of nine. Resistance is futile.

I like tos and tng the best of the five series. Never saw Enterprise tho. I like the shows of tos and tng cause there was always a human factor in the story. It was a techno-sci-fi show with a wonderful 'human' edge. Also for the fact that the ST future was a peaceful one, having eliminated poverty, war, and disease.

Watching ST is a big escape for me. A way to get out of the real world for a while and fantasize about a peaceful world.

And the borg implant gal was Seven of Nine, played by Jeri Ryan.


PS; MG, who was the captain on Enterprise show and what other role was he associated with? I'm curious since I've never seen any of that show.

I never got into the later star treks. I grew up watching the old ones with Shatner. I did like the ones with Jean Luc too though. Never could call myself a trekker or trekkie. Just good TV. Two of my favorites were the touble with tribbles and the one with the Gorn.

I also love Twilight Zone. My favorite is the one with Telly Savalas and that doll. It still freaks me out when I pick up one of my little girls dolls. I'm always gentle with them. I don't need one killin' me. LOL

Live long and prosper trekkers.

Beam me up Scottie!

That was Talking Tina on the Twilight Zone.

Least, it was Scott Bakula and I associate him with the Quantum Leap (TV series)

Looks like you'll have to re-name this group into atomic wedgie victims!!

Ha! Just kidding, I'm a fan of the orginal show and TNG. Never could get into any of the other shows after that though.

The original series makes me laugh because it slots into the so bad its good category (don't hate me) however Spock is probably the best character to come from the Star Trek series, but I'm also very fond of Bones.

TNG was a fantastic series although John luc was a bit pompous for me, my favourite episodes were always when Q was messing with him.

Deep space nine meh I too thought it suffered from its setting.

I did love Voyager though especially Janeways Katherine Hepburn impressions lol.

The boys can have Seven of Nine, I will settle for Chakota.

And with Enterprise what where they thinking casting Scott Bakula, I was always waiting for him to say "Oh boy" and for Al to turn up!

I have just realised my last two posts, one in here and one in the fantasy book part of the book club, officially make me a nerd!

Spock is my favorite character from tos. I love his brooding quality and the way he'd raise one eyebrow and say "fascinating". Data and Worf are my favorite tng characters.
