glad you didn't say boyfriend or something dumb like that, haha. I wasn't into guys
at that time, well, except Weyoun, but outside of Trek, I guess I just had high
standards, ha.
But thank you, Raiden, for understanding, for re-wording this, in a sense...
Thanks, everyone else, for you input, too!

Anything for the Vorta lol

If anything DS9 raised my demands for high standards.

When DS9 ended, I was left with VOY.


Which is like spending seven years with Anne Hathaway, then ending up with Rosie O'Donnell.

It influenced my life in a major way- a very good way.
Due to the show, I've met some amazing people and had some priceless experiences.
I could write a book...

I enjoyed the show and looking back somewhat identified with Jake as we were of a similar age but I don't know what practical impact it had on my life. 'The Jem'Hadar' made my jaw drop and 'The Visitor', 'Hard Time', and 'What You Leave Behind' made me cry but did the show cause me to do anything differently in real life? Not really. Sisko said some pretty insightful things regarding leadership that I took to heart and Vic as someone else mentioned put a spring in my step but it didn't make me switch majors or get a different job or girlfriend or anything.

TNG and VOY shaped my life, not DS9

DS9 was a highly engaging program. I enjoyed watching the characters evolve.

The show did effect me in many ways. It was on during a very chaotic time in my life. It was something to look forward to.

Eris, I don't think your a loon. And I don't make friends with normal people, so who knows what that says about me. HAH.

I remember watching DS9 from say 1 (so I was in the third grade... wow... I was so young.... what happened?) all the way to the end. So the show ended just before I started High School.

The one episode that stands out as my all time favorite episode (from any series) is 'The Visitor' (so close to getting to that one again). I am not sure why, but it affected me.

Other then that it just showed me the horror of war. Considering the show aired from when I was in 3rd grade to the end of my middle school career, I just can't remember.

I leave you with my all time favorite quote:

Quote:
"Four hundred years ago, a victorious general spoke the following words at the end of another costly war: 'Today the guns are silent. A great tragedy has ended... we have known the bitterness of defeat and the exultation of triumph, and from both we have learned there can be no going back. We must move forward to preserve in peace what we've won in war'."

- William Ross, quoting Douglas MacArthur

Well, it made me really angry when they stopped showing it just as I was starting to like it! Does that count?
