I cry when I hear the TOS, ST:TNG and Voyager theme music. I have made 3 uniforms, I have a phaser and a tricorder, I have a Starfleet Academy sticker on my car, I have the dolls (TOS - what I call the "Magnificent Seven"), I named a dog Oxmyx, my ringtone is the red alert sound, I hang the Hallmark ornaments every year. I think the Mirror Mirror Spock is hot. I'm 41 and I'm teaching my 18 month old son about Trek already - we watch Enterprise on Mondays and TOS on Saturdays. If I could get him a sehlat for a pet, I would!

Yeah I wish they'd play TOS more often on tv, but it comes on at odd times. Same with DS9 and Voyager, it's usually in the middle of the night. I watch Enterprise on Mondays occasionally as well. Maybe the scifi network will pick up another trek series.

Not sure where I would be on "the scale"

I like the other series, but totally obsessed with Deep Space Nine.

Wouldn't mind finding some action figures one of these days. Already have heaps of books too.

Watch it every day. And when I don't watch it, I'm often wishing that I was.

If that makes me crazy then I don't care.

Hmm... well, I wouldn't say that I'm on the same level (or anywhere NEAR the same level) as most of y'all, but I sure am trying. The only toys, memorabilia, collectibles, or anything I have are a McCoy figure, a Kirk figure (articulated, this one), a Spock t-shirt, and a calender. (There's also the Lego BoP, but I keep breaking it by mistake.) But now that I've got a job, maybe I can get a bit more into collecting-- er, well, mroe like buying stuff to play with.

Now, if I had a cellphone, I'd totally try and deck it out with Trek noises. Heck, I'd like to do that with my laptop- open a file, hear a door-whoosh. Shutting down Windows- transporter noise. That's be so darn cool! But unfortunately, I don't know where to get sound-effects, so, I can't. Boo.

(Still, every time I use my parents' phones, I do the little flippy wrist thing and fight the urge to answer with [last name], here. XP)

But memorabilia aside, I like to think that I'm coming along well enough in Trek Geekdom, at least considering the amount of time I've been a fan. I watch the show as much as possible (even though the computer always seem to do his best to prevent me from doing so...) and lurk in all kinds of discussions about them to get new perspectives. I read as many novels as possible, amass as much minutiae as I can-- in short, with apologies to Master Yoda, I'm just trying my best to be a worthy Trekkie. =)

And aside from that... well, I'm totally, totally obsessed with it, the-thinking-about-it-constantly kinda obsessed. I fall asleep mulling over planned fanfics and clutching the aforementioned McCoy doll, spend a healthy amount of time daydreaming and such. Just enjoying what a great show Star Trek is.

Ampris, don't take this the wrong way, but I think you're on our level!

Six AM, weekday mornings on TV Land. A very in-opportune time indeed.

But then, they also play frickin' I Love Lucy at five-thirty AM, so I dunno which loony is calling the shots with the scheduling, putting good shows in lousy slots. :\
