Yeah, he does not like TOS, but sometimes I try to make him like TOS. I have showed him Wolf in the Fold, Th?s Side of Paradise, All Our Yesterdays and Mark of Gideon.

Hmm...IMO, "Wolf in the Fold" and "Mark of Gideon" are not TOS' strongest episodes.

Try showing him "Mirror, Mirror", "Amok Time" or "Journey to Babel", perhaps those might appeal to him more? ?:)

Journey to Babel. Thats it! I will show him Journey to Babel next time when I see him. U are genius. Thanks. :)

I'm not sure where I sit

-I have seen every episode of TOS and TNG multiple times. I own the full series of both.
-I have seen every movie a ridiculous amount of times. I saw the latest movie on the "early release show" on Thursday May 7, and saw it 4 more times. I've seen every film since TFF on opening day and multiple times. I own all 10 on VHS, DVD, and Blu-Ray.
-I have a massive Star Trek collection on desplay in our home office (pictures were posted on this board back in the spring). Some of my favorite pieces include:
¿*The ORIGINAL Movie Theater posters for II, III, IV, V, VI, GEN, FC, and INS, and XI
¿*An autographed photo circa ST:TMP of Nimoy and The Shat
¿*Autographs signed personally to me by Takei, Koenig, Nichelles, R.D. MacNeill, and Marina Sirtis
¿*Near-complete comic collections from DC's 80's runs.
¿*A full set (including all the stickers) of the TMP Topps trading cards
¿*A resin and metal cast prop of the Star Trek V / VI Assult Phaser...very good reproduction
¿*A "Scotty" Mego TMP figure signed by James Doohan
¿*Pocketbooks TMP and TWOK "Photonovels"
¿*Several TOS "Photonovels"
¿*Tons of toys: Phasers, communicators, tricorders, ships, etc. etc. etc.
¿*Tons of fiction and non-fiction books
-I've been to 8 conventions, including a Shatner / Nimoy one in 1991.
-I've been to Star Trek-The Experience 3 times

On the other side, I've never dressed up, I don't own any costumes (a few cool t-shirts though...). I've never been a member of a Star Trek fan club. I've never learned to speak Klingon (even though I own the Okrand "Dictionary"). I've missed a few episodes of Ds9. I've probably only seen half of ENT and 2/3 of VOY. I've never written fanfiction or tried to make my own Trek movie / homefilm.

So, I'm "hardcore" in some cases...but I'm probably not "all-out." I think each fan expresses their fandom in different ways, though...so just because I don't own costumes or go to fan meetings...I don't think that makes me "less" of a fan. I just express my fandom differently.

First of all, that is one awesome-sounding collection you've got there Vger!

And secondly, what I think is so great about Trek is that, it doesn't matter what else you're into, there always seems to be a way to bring Trek into it.

For example, I've always been into cosplay. I've always worn costumes from different fandoms. I don't dress up because of Trek, but it is cool adding those Trek uniforms to my collection.

I'm an amateur short film maker. I've been working on films for longer than I've been into Trek. But now I'm seriously considering making some Trek fan films.

You obviously like comics and collectables. So you've found a way to tie that in with Trek.

I don't think it makes one of us more of a Trekkie (or Trekker if you prefer) than the other, it's just the way we choose to involve it in our lives.


I've talked about this before, but to me it feels like it starts off as just 'watching a TV show' and then before you know it, it's entangled itself in every aspect of your life! Everything I watch these days is Trek-related...I've gotten almost my entire family into it...I write stories and articles about Trek often...I've started socialising with Trekkies.

I feel like I've been assimilated! :laugh:

That's cool!

I remember when the Christy's Auction did a bunch of Trek stuff a couple of years ago. They had a TON of original authentic Trek costumes (some that were worn by the primary actors) in that auction. Even though I'm not a "costume" guy, if I had the $$$ I would have scooped one of those up in a SECOND!

Can you imagine having enough cash to pick up the shooting model of the Enterprise-A or something insane like that?? They had some unbelievable stuff up for sale in that thing.

I'm not a "socially inept misfit," but I am what I am--just a regular person who really loves ST. And I really do think it would help our general image if more "regular" people came out of the ST closet. We're not all weird losers and "outsiders" need to know that.

I don't know how it is in the States, but here in the UK, the new film has definately made it cool to like Star Trek again. I don't know if any of you are familiar with a chain of stores called 'Boots' (they sell cosmetics, toiletries, pharmaceuticals etc etc), well in their xmas gifts catalogue they have a Star Trek section, with socks, pens, notebooks etc (and the best bit is, it's TOS and not STXI).

I think we'll be seeing Trek back in the mainstrean for a while over here at least.

:p "Fitting in" is over-rated. :p
