Any Trekkies?

Postby the whistleplayer » Fri Oct 15, 2004 10:08 am

I was just wondering, reading the 'definitive lists' of other interests. There seem to be at least a few Star Trek fans here on the forum... :mrgreen:
I am one of them, what about you all?

I like Star Trek and would more than gladly sit down to watch any of it's incarnations - but i wouldn't run around in Spock Ears reciting every ship ever to have been commissioned into Starfleet. ^^ Sorry, no Trekkie here.

well, i don't want to offend anyone, but star trek never appealed to me and never will. SORRY!

Well, I've only got one next generation series on dvd, but I'd love more of them...it's just that they aren't exactly what you would call cheap :?
But I buy very Star Trek magazine! (It's being imported here from the UK!)

I did read STM at one point not long ago, but it was expensive, and there was too much 'Enterprise' stuff, so I haven't got it for a while now. I'm not a 'go to conventions' Trekkie, but I do like it a great deal :lol: My favourite series is Voyager, closely followed by Next Generation, but I haven't really watched the others :oops: My favourite characters are Kathryn Janeway, Deanna Troi and Beverly Chrusher!!

Anyone else? - Girls, what do you think of Chakotay? :mrgreen:

I like Chakotay too, he's a very sympathetic character, very gentle too.
My all time favourite character is Data... And from Voyager I like Seven of Nine, though I love every episode that focusses on Tuvok. (Vulcans are my favourite alien! 8) )
What's your favourite captain?
Mine is Janeway :mrgreen:

I could have know it was you Whistleplayer. However much we may near the "an cupla"- thing. That is something we will never share. I will not ever become a fervent trekkie; anyway they all look so confusingly alike :P

I'm a fan of star trek but not a trekkie, I don't have a lycra uniform and I don't have a poster of seven of nine on my wall. (although maybe i should).

I prefer the star wars universe, it seems more realistic to me, lots of rogues and warn out old ships and stuff.

Resistance is futile. :mrgreen: :D

Yeah, well, I don't have a Starfleet uniform myself, I'm not at all into uniforms, whether military or science fiction... :mrgreen:
And I've never been to a convention either, have no posters on my wall, but that's mainly because I just did (well...my mother did mostly) some redecorating :D
But I love watching it! So it depends on your definition of Trekkie actually if I reckon myself one.

So what about a classcostume for the dancing?! And if you need any confirmation on her being a trekkie; she is. She tapes them all!

I have a feeling elizabeth will soon add a comment about Chakotay (sorry Lizzie, but it is true :mrgreen: )
I really like him, but not as much as I did. My favourite captain is Janeway BY FAR, although I like Picard (and Patrick Stewart is an English actor which adds credit for me :) ). My favourite character has to be Deanna Troi though - Betazoids are my favourite speices.
Who's your favourite character?

Grania out - :lol:
