Hey, people! I only just recently discovered this board, and there's practically no life here. I've revived about six threads here, and the last post on each of them is me. They have not been touched since, and I've only seen a few people on here in the past two weeks. We have a new movie coming out next year. Some people are not thrilled with how it's being done, and some are just going with it. The point is, Star Trek has finally got it's heart beating again, and yet this forum is practically dead! That doesn't fill me with hope for the survival of our beloved franchise. I'm sure there's more visitors coming here than indicated, you're just not posting..maybe because of tired topics or whatever. We can change that by stating new ideas and stirring up some conversation..having some fun.
But we'll get to that later. First things first.
Let's start by figuring out how much life DOES come to this board. So...I would like everyone who sees this thread to say hi, and state how long you have been a fan of Trek..and wether you're a fan of just TOS, or if you like other Trek. Once we get a feel for how many people we have here, we can throw some ideas on how to spark more conversation on the forum, maybe bring it back to life again.
I'll start things off. You don't need to state your real name if you don't want to. Me..I'm not really worried about that..sooooo...
Hey! My name is Ted..and I'm an alcaholic. ( Sorry, it was there, I had to take it) I've been a serious Trek fan since 1982, when The Wrath of Khan came out. Liked it before, but never a Trekker before that. Next Generation took time, but they had big shoes to fill, I gave them the time, and it paid off. They won me over by Season Two. Deep Space Nine was more of a serial, but I liked this difference. Voyager was great, but after a while (maybe Five seasons)..I thought the franchise was getting tired, needing a rest. I've only seen a few episodes of Enterprise retro, but I'll see more. When it originally aired, I thought they were milking it big time. I felt everybody was getting tired and Trek need about a five year vacation. I only recently started watching it. I DO NOT like the idea of a new, younger cast playing our beloved classic crew for this new movie, but I'll go to see it. I'll accept one prequel, but if it becomes a full blown re-imagining, ( several prequels) I'll be very upset.
You don't have to go into that much exposition, but you get the idea. So..let's see what's out there!
Mouseketeer role call! Sound Off!
