Wasn't when the first show aired, but got into it ten years later. When I left my parents' house I didn't bother to have a TV, then when I came to the Boston area I brought an abandoned one inside (I was living among college students) and tried it, to see if it worked. Just so happened that Star Trek was on, so I kept the set.

Star Trek was on Ch 68. One Saturday evening I put the TV on and heard a show beginning with synthesizer and a chorus "Robin....the hooded man". So: being a Trek fan led to being a Clannad-eejit. :D

I have never been a fan of Star Trek..I don't like too many sci-fi related things, if any.

Definetly a Trekkie, ever since I discovered the books in seventh grade. I own far more of the books than I should :D, and I love watching the episodes, especially ones with Romulans (my favorite species).

Since they released the repacked (cheaper) seasons of The Next Generation, I've started to collect them. Only need season 6 to complete the series! :D And then I just have to wait for the repacked dvd collection of Voyager...

:shock: Someone's been spending a bit - I'd love to get all those on DVD but there's no way I could manage it.

Andrea, what's 'encounter at farpoint' like? It's virtually the only TNG I've never seen :(

Yeah well..that's why I bought the cheaper repackaged dvd's, they're not too expensive. (quite cheap actually considering that you get 7 dvds for that price :mrgreen: ) but I can understand that it's still expensive for students :wink:
Encounter at farpoint is quite fun to watch because all the actors need to 'get into' their character. That's also what makes the episodes interesting. And some details like computer commands weren't fixed yet, so it's different from later episodes.
What I'd forgotten is that Q's first appearance is already in the very first episode. He charges the human race with being very primitive and violent, but ultimately, Picard knows how to get the benefit of the doubt and a chance for humanity to prove itself.
I think John de Lancie is really brilliant in his performance as Q.

Hehe...I'm not a fan so I really don't know anything about this, but I saw a bumper sticker or something once that said, "What Would Janeway Do?"

If you don't mind, Grania.. I'll help you out. I believe it was you who sent it to me quite some time ago!



Why Janeway is better than Picard.

 One word: hair
 More hair than all the previous Star Trek commanding officers combined
 Drinks coffee not that sissy “Earl Grey” stuff
 Beams down to the planet like a real captain should
 Mutes the doctor when he gets out of line
 Hasn’t let an adolescent pilot the Federation Flagship, yet…
 Commanded ships blown up: Picard-2, Janeway-2.
 Voyager needs a female Captain. Its captain must be willing to admit that they’re lost and pull over to ask for directions.
 Picard likes to talk his way through; Janeway likes to punch her way through.
 Hasn’t quoted Shakespeare, yet…
 Looks better in sleepwear
 Isn’t French with an English accent
 “Take this cheese to sickbay” – I loved that line
 Will give you two days off to ponder your life shattering experiences.
 When Janeway lands her ship on a planet, it can take off again.
 Janeway says “I don’t like you” to her enemies instead of trying to convince them to behave better.
 To comfort children, Janeway cares for them in a loving motherly way. Picard sings a song…in French…about a monk…who can’t wake up for morning bells.
 The only children on Voyager can be turned off at will.
 Janeway has a first officer with a tattoo.
 She doesn’t have any pesky Federation Admirals to get in her way.
 Three words: Compression Phaser Rifles
 Acknowledges freely when she breaks the Prime Directive instead of trying to weasel out of it with philosophical ramblings.
 30 episodes without surrendering the ship.
 Janeway’s holo programs create useful things like doctors and lungs. Picard’s holodecks create maniacal evil geniuses that yet again take over the ship.
 She doesn’t need to straighten her uniform every time she stands.
 Janeway has never worn green tights and frolicked around in Sherwood Forest. However, if she did she would look fantastic.
 Kirk looked good in ripped shirts; Picard looked good without a shirt; Janeway would look good…no, they can’t do that on network television.
 Cheese
 Doesn’t force her crew to wear awful outfits unless it is to blend in with a primitive planet.
 She doesn’t waste time learning foreign languages. All lifeforms in the Delta Quadrant speak perfect English.
 Her engineer does not wear a banana clip over her eyes.
 Doesn’t have a counsellor on board
 Her telepath only lives 9 years
 Janeway heard the words “To boldly go where no man (erm…woman) has gone before” and took them to the extreme.
 45,000 light-years is one thing. Every point in the universe instantaneously? That’s excessive.
 Picard tells alien cultures “I hope our two cultures will one day come to a greater understanding”. Janeway threatens them with the “deadliest of force”.
 Janeway’s security chief would never grow a ponytail.
 The high point of enterprise cuisine was scrambled eggs that only Worf could stomach.
 Janeway doesn’t have to point which way to go when they set off.
 Maintains an elaborate hairstyle that would baffle even Princess Leia.
 Has mastered facial expression understood by all to mean, “Boy, Paris, are YOU ever stupid!”
 Cheese, Cheese, Cheese, Cheese, Cheese, Cheese
 Hugs her Vulcan from time to time
 Has a more manly voice
 Doesn’t have a starship that splits in two when it is in a tight spot.
 Has a dog and a significant other, not some damn fish!
 Kes. Troi. No contest.
 Neelix. Replicator. Ok, this one is debatable.
 At least she doesn’t have to yell “Hot!” at her chef every time she wants something to drink.
 Her ship has neat-looking folding warp nacelles
 Her CONN officer actually went through the academy.
 Her OPS officer can use contractions.
 Her first officer has a hallucinogenic device.
 None of the crewmembers relatives have ever tried to take over the ship, invade the federation, steal a starship, or enslave all humankind.
 To help her relax, Janeway’s first officer helps her contact her spirit guide. Picard’s first officer helps him get… to Risa.
 Riker never smiled at Picard in that way.
 Q asked Janeway to run away with him and she refused. Q asked Picard’s girlfriend to run away with him and she accepted.
