I'm 17 and I love Star Trek. I got into it a couple of years back when I watched MASH and Enterprise was broadcasted after it. I liked the intro so I watched the first part untill the intro. :p  But the teaser is always before the intro, so after a while I watched the whole episode. I became hooked and bought the dvd's. Later I watched the other shows and the movies. :D  I'm now totally crazy about it and I really like TOS because of the old fashioned style and Spock who is my favorite character of all Star Trek.

I was born in '66, but became a fan in '72 watching reruns with my father. Been a die hard ever since.

Same here, except I was born in '61 (btw, TOS premiered on my fifth birthday, 9/8/66 ;)) and got into it when my sister (who HAD watched it during it's run on NBC) put it on one night. Hooked me immediately.

Hey whats up! Thanks for sharing, its good to see some 'younger' fans around the TOS board, especially ones who can also appreciate ENT. I'm a fan of all the Star Trek shows and am 30 years old, myself. I still watch TOS pretty regularly, its an awesome show. See you guys around!

I'm 20. I like all star trek shows (enterprise is ranked last). ¿I was originally a TNG fan first. I saw the original movies got hooked then became a fan of the original series. ¿Been a big fan of the original since 9th grade. Now with the remastered TOS is that much better.

Hey Buff, don't mean to step on your toes, but if you really want to know this, I'll bump up a thread I started which polls by birth year.....since we've done a number of age polls, but they tend to get out of date, if you see what I mean. Like, I'm a few years older than the age I put in some of the other polls.

I'm 31 and started as a TNG fan, but when I bought the whole TOS series on DVD, i was hooked. I think these characters were the best and can't believe that I never got into them on reruns. ¿Now I can't get enough of them and never miss an episode.

I am 39, and started watching Trek in the early 70s on the CBC...they aired reruns every Saturday morning.  I guess I was about  6 when I started watching it, but I can't honestly remember.

I'm 38. My older brother started watching reruns, and then TAS came on around 1974. That's when I started watching.

I started watching in 1968, second season. I caught the reruns  when my channel 40 started showing them. Would rush home from school to watch the ones I had missed. Over the years my fandom has waxed and waned but never truly gone away. Sad to think that I am watching the originals pass away now, one by one. Without the conventions, who would have thought Star Trek would still be in our lexicon?

I was born in '62 and my parents were watching Trek from the beginning and got me hooked on it too - remember watching those first season eps in awe (and quite honestly, not getting all of it considering how young I was) - was thrilled when Channel 11 started repeating them when I could understand better.  My parents, now 78 and 79 still love TOS too - they argue over whether they should have been remastered or not.  My Mom loved DS9 as well, and my Dad went for Voyager, and they both watched Enterprise fairly regularly, though they wished it was better.  They're even tougher than me on TNG - both will agree that Stewart was the best actor in the franchise and that Data was a pretty spiffy character, but they found much of TNG occassionally nauseating in its' over PC-ness.

Born in 1975, and I'm not sure EXACTLY when I started watching, but it was definitely before ST: The Motion Picture was released. I love all the Star Trek shows and movies now, but I started watching less-and-less after TNG ended. Each series got progressively more repetitive in my opinion. Taken by themselves, I think they are all good shows, but when viewed in context of 32 years of viewing...not so much.

18, The Original Series is my favorite.  My dad had a number of VHS tapes of some of the best episodes and it was on tv friday night and the family sat down and watched it for as long as I can remember.  It was great.

Been watching TOS since the early 80's when it was in syndication, and 'Wrath Of Khan' was the first movie I ever saw in a theater.
