Not wanting to negate boco's poll, but I did the same thing - I asked how old folks are as boco did. Those age poles soon lose viability.

The text from my original poll O.P.:

I was just wondering how many of us original fans from the 60's are still Trek fans. How many ST (TOS, what else?) are younger fans who got into ST watching reruns... etc.. Doesn't even need to be your favorite series.

I'm 53 54 and have been watching Trek since I was 11 (in 1966) and am still loving it. All of it. Some more than others, though.

No need to post your age in the thread. You may just make your mark if you wish, so to speak.

Replies and little stories are fun...

Thanks...

I was born in 71.....and have been a fan since 75.

A young impressionable baby/toddler was left with his daddy in the last '80s when some show with a bald man was on. Said child quickly became entranced by this programme, and actually believed that the bald man and his friends really were up there, saving us on a weekly basis. The seven year old kid was very sad to see the bald man finish his travels in 1994. He watched the one on the space station, but he didn't like it as much as the old one. He didn't see it again til the late '90s, cos no channel in his home where he lived were showing it at the time. It was also around this time that he saw the one with the lady captain, and the very old ones.

The child has grown up, and sometimes wonders if his daddy knew all the trouble that came out of letting his son sit in front of a tv, some twenty years ago.

Go to one of the other polls, take the physical age I typed and subtract it from the year of the date it was posted then add the numbers of years difference from today date since that last post.

As I have always said, Fan since conception.

1964. In Chinese astrology I'm a Double Dragon.

Anyhow, I grew up watching TOS series re-runs with my dad, on my stomach, chin in hands, in the fuzzy orange 70's carpet in the living room. I distinctly remember a little skirmish between the parents when I, at a very young age, had nightmares after watching The Menagerie. I think the upshot was, my dad wasn't gonna stop watching Star Trek, and they couldn't control what their kids watched anyway. And they never even tried to after that.

Thus began a lifetime of watching all the stuff my dad liked to watch and having neat conversations about them later. So I majored in literature, 'cause I was good at it by then.

Lucky 77 here. Became a fan sometime in the late eighties from watching TV with my Dad at night when I was able to stay up late or watched it on VHS the next day, my Dad always recorded the episodes.

I'm 20 years younger than Star Trek.

I was introduced to it by my sisters, who always watched TNG during its run. But, I didn't really become a fan until around 1994.
