1. How many years have you been a ST fan?


Since the early 1970's. 


2. Have you ever been to a con? If so, how many?


I haven't. I stay in South Africa, the country. There aren't any here, unfortunately. I'd like to. 


3. Do you watch the show with other people? Friends or family?


I watch it alone. There was a time when I was with a local Star Trek fan club, and watched some episodes with them. (FOST - Friends Of Star Trek.) 


4. Do you decorate your home or office with ST memorbilia?


A little. For instance a PC wallpaper with a TOS Enterprise scene.


5. Why are you a ST fan?


I've always been into space travel. Be nice if I could do something like Star Trek through the real universe. Gives hope for the future. The word 'Trek' is from where I am. Has good symbolisms, allegories, and such like. One can say an exploration of Inner Space.

1. Been a fan since 1972, I'm 46.

2. I've been to two conventions both back in the decade of the 1990's.

3. Yes I watch with both friends and family. I like that my kids have grown up around it and are getting into the franchise. Their ages are 11, 10, & 8. JJ Trek is their favorite, mine TOS.

4. Yes I have memorabilia at home. Several T-shirts, model ships, apps on my phone and pictures on my computer.

5. Best sci fi there is or ever was. Great characters, stories, philosophy, mission statement, etc...

I also get into the naval history with the ship names being famous USA warships like the "E", Saratoga, Lexington, Yorktown, etc...

1. How many years have you been a ST fan?


Since about 1981


 


2. Have you ever been to a con? If so, how many?


A lot.  About 10 Creation Cons and too many other sci fi ones to count.


 


3. Do you watch the show with other people? Friends or family?


My mother's second husband got me into it. I used to watch it with him and another family friend, but lately it's at home on Netflix/


4. Do you decorate your home or office with ST memorbilia?


I have some collectibles. I've sold off a lot but I have a few things here and there.  I try to keep my office neutral of ANY of my fandoms, because I don't like to mix business with my personal life. 


 


5. Why are you a ST fan? :-)


Ha, that's not an easy answer.

1. About 4 years


2. never been to a con- yet!


3. Not very many of my friends like the show, but my immediate family are very hard core ST fans


4. I have a couple pictures of ST actors and I get the Star trek magazine, but I dont necessarily "decorate" with them.


5. I love Star trek because I was always a huge fan of space since I was really young. My hero was Neil Armstrong. I also loved ST because it wasnt just one of those sci-fy shows that was just about aliens shooting each other, it actually showed what earth could possibly look like in the future, (I was very into history and learning about it. Also loved the idea of time travel) It had a plot, and the people were for the most part, morally good. they tried to make the right decision. And it was REALISTIC. 


But mostly, it made me strive to do my best and to never give up on your dreams.

1. How many years have you been a ST fan?


I first watched ST reruns as a kid during the early 1970s. Then I became more of a loyal fun when ST Nest Generation came out. I was not happy when the series ended in 1994. But along came ST Voyager and that show had me hook, line and sinker right from it's start.


 


2. Have you ever been to a con? If so, how many?


No, I haven't but they sound like fun.


 


3. Do you watch the show with other people? Friends or family? I did. with my brother and sisters as a kid and then with my college friends during the 1990's. I also go th ST movies with friends.


 


4. Do you decorate your home or office with ST memorbilia? No


 


5. Why are you a ST fan? :-)


I like the variey in it including, drama, action, sometimes suspense, a touch of romance and comedy And almost always had an interesting story.. But I mostly like how it gives a sense of hope for the future.
