    Just turned 30 last december. Been watching Trek since 2002 I beleive. I was clinically depressed at the time and couldnt leave my house. Started watch it on TNN when interest was piqued and it literally saved me from going bonkers. I was lost but NOW IM FOUND.!! But serioulsy I still love them all. Enterpirse and Voyager maybe not so much. But will watch anything Trek if its on.

    Peace and Long LIfe.

    I'm 25 and I've been watching "Star Trek" since I was 7 years old, having grown up on reruns of the original series. Since then, I've seen all of the original series, Seasons 1 and 5 of "The Next Generation", select episodes of both "Deep Space Nine" and "Voyager", but I haven't yet seen any episodes of "Enterprise".

    But I've gotten all of the series on my external hard drives (I love making music videos...hehe :-D) and I've recently bought a DVD player with a USB port. I dragged and dropped lots of my favorite (or ones that could be potential favorite) episodes of TOS and TNG. Right now I'm on episode 45 of 60 (from my flash drive) and I'm watching the TOS episode "Day of the Dove". I loved this episode! :-D

    I've also had the great fortune of meeting some of the cast from TOS (George Takei as Hikaru Sulu), TNG (Denise Crosby as Tasha Yar, Jonathan Frakes as Cmdr. William Riker, Levar Burton as Geordi LaForge, Marina Sirtis as Lt. Cmdr. Deanna Troi and Brent Spiner as Lt. Cmdr. Data), DS9 (Terry Farrell as Jadzia Dax) and Voyager (Robert Beltran as Cmdr. Chakotay and Tim Russ as Lt. Tuvok), but I haven't met anybody from Enterprise.

    At least not yet. :-D

    I'll be 45 this year and I remember watching it when I was a small child and I also watched back when I was 16. I watch it now on Sunday nights on my local station. They show two episodes in a row. And I guess I didn't notice Kirk's tight ass because I was too busy staring at Scotty.

    14, I've been watchin since I was about three. My aunt was really into it when she was a kid, and got me into it. We used to watch the new episodes of Voyager and Enterprise every week. I perfer the original series to those two, but TNG is my favorite. I haven't seen any of DS9.

    DS9 takes a darker (and richer in my opinion) tone than the rest of Star Trek.

    I'm a fan of all things Star Trek (except for parts of Voyager) and I think it's great that it's still drawing a younger audience!

    Currently 30 and I am a fan. Watched the TOS in reruns as a kid with my dad. Started watching TNG in season two mostly and never looked back from that day. Saw DS9 and Voyager's pilots.
    Wished I could have seen Ent when it made it's inital run but it was on a forsaken network. Had to see it in reruns...thank you sci-fi channel

    I'm 28 now, and saw it for the first time when I was in my early teens. I immediately took to the characters, the atmosphere, the humor and the social commentaries Roddenberry managed to subtly write between the lines. Spock has always been my favorite, and I've been a big Nimoy fan since then.

    I tried watching the other ST shows, but they just didn't catch my interest. They lacked the charm from TOS, and it was suddenly much more about special effects than stories about people. And they didn't have Spock's and Kirk's dymanic, which I love and adore to this day.

    I find no matter how many years have passed, I can always return and feel the same love for this show like I did when I was 14.

    50. During the 1st run I was more of a Lost in Space fan. My 1st crush was Penny. It was not until the late 60's early 70's that I became a real Star Trek fan.

    I live with my grandmother and uncle so I've been watching, for all I know, since I was old enough to sit in front of the t.v. and watch. I'm 19.
