I love the look of the bridge and can't wait to see it in action....just another month to go
Neat! I'm under the same name, "AyanEva." It's the only name I ever use.

I was definitely a Trekkie when I was younger, I think. I had a First Contact phaser and a TNG communicator that worked (well, it made beepy noises). And I used to wear the communicator to school! I could never afford a uniform, though. My best friend and I would have ST marathons over school breaks where we would just sit in her rooom and watch TOS episodes straight through for two or three days straight. Her parents would never see us except for when we would occassionally wander out for food or to use the bathroom. LOL

The iBridge (I personally use that term only playfully because it amuses me) is completely AWESOME. I love it! I too can't wait to see it.

So it's like me and one or two other people who finally got fed up and started waving around our Bat'leths.

It's been pretty civil and actually quite a bit of fun. Star Trek always comes first for me. I've been a fan since I was three years old (I'm 25 now), so that's coming up on 22 years. I've only been a Doctor Who fan for about 14 years. Yeah, I started early with my sci-fi geekdom. lol
First and foremost, AyanEva and VulcanAeneas, welcome to the Official Trek Movie Forum, the Frontline of Star Trek. We're glad to have you both aboard in the the last month to the movie.

I think I would have been a Trekkie if I started off with watching Trek but I didn't have access to television very often. I read many other sci fi genre's other than Star Trek. The books were my only source of fictional entertainment. Later in life I grew to have an intense love of football and basketball. So far I haven't had to chose between Houston Texan Football or a Star Trek series or Houston Rockets Basketball but hopefully that will never come.

I'm just along for the ride aslong as the stories are good but I hope on and off because I just enjoy physical activities.

I watched all seasons of Voyager/Enterprise/DS9 in a very short time (4 or more episodes a day)..TNG just 1 or 2 episode(s) a day. But am I a trekkie? No..I don't think I am. You need to have atleast one suit to be one
I've never had a suit but I've never had a football uniform either. I wouldn't where either unless I just wanted to try it or I was actually going to act or play ball because they aren't what I am. I am Saquist which according to most is unique enough...

By your definition, perhaps.

I've been a Star Trek fan since the mid 70's when TOS was gaining its popularity through syndication. Back then, we were Trekkies and it wasn't until you kids came along and decided you didn't like the term that you changed it. LOL

(And...btw...I'm only 39.)

Thanks! I've been mostly lurking since maybe December or so and visiting every so often but I'm so excited right now that I need someone to share the excitement with! I couldn't help myself. I HAD to start posting and participating. LOL

I had the First Contact phaser and communicator as well, I've also got numerous toy ships currently in boxes in my garage. There's also a lovely hand drawn image down there was Kirk, Picard and the Enterprise-A (a gift from my ex) I was a huge fan for years but when DS9 finished I simply stopped watching. This movie has rekindled my fandom and, while I probably won't go as crazy as I once was, I'm glad to return back to my Trek-loving roots.

I love the term 'iBridge' as well, at first I thought it annoyed me but I think it's a fair enough description of the new bridge.

Thank you for the welcome. I've been following the build up to the movie on here for the past few months and realised I can't lurk anymore - I want to get involved in the discussion.

I had no chance of not becoming a Trekkie, my grandmother used to love the Original Series and everytime I visted her she'd have it on. Sometimes we'd just watch it together. When she died I continued watching Star Trek...it reminded me on the times spent with her. I wasn't exposed to many other sci-fi series or books (I didn't even see the original Star Wars trilogy until the year 2000!)

Because of my interest in ancient history, I read more fantasy or historical books rather than science fiction. That means Trek has always been my sci-fi 'fix' (apart from Doctor Who since 2005)

Anyway, enough of my life story. Thanks again for the welcome

That is a very touching way to enjoy Sci Fi.
We don't have a introduction sub forum so I don't mind the intro at all.
How did you choose your Name?

I study Classical Civilisation in University and one of my favourite ancient epic is The Aeneid - it tells the story of Aeneas who flees Troy and eventually ends up in Italy, his descendants would later go on to found Rome. It's a big propaganda piece for the Augustan regime but it's still an entertaining story.

Towards the end Aeneas is given a new sword and shield from the Roman god of the forge named Vulcan. I thought it would be quite appropriate to combine those two names on here, since Vulcan has a different meaning here. Also a great way of combining my interests I think, thank you for asking

You're from Houston? A few of my friends are currently on holiday in Houston - they went to go see WrestleMania.

I recognized the Greek name. I was curious as to the combination you chose and the relation. It is gratifying to see an intrest in culture and history. That is fascinating tale, I should added to my reading list.

Yes Indeed, born and raised in Space City. WrestleMania was indeed big and well covered. I'm not sure if it's over. The radio stations have been nothing short of a-buzzed.

I also have the complete TAS on DVD because my son likes to watch it. TNG was great, DS9 was okay, VOY...decent, ENT-season 4 was the best. The rest was throwaway. Too many continuity errors for my taste. I have all the movies on DVD and watch them periodically. And, yes, I do have a TNG Captain's uniform and a TOS Captain's uniform. I do not wear them in public except occasionally on Haloween. Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of time to go to conventions or conferences. I went to one back in the 1990's and met John DeLancy (Q). I also went to one a couple of years later where I met Leonard Nimoy. That was awesome! So, am I a Trekkie? Yep
I've considered myself a Trekker since my early teens...

So many years ago...

Welcome aboard Aeneas...

Wish I could share your enthusiasm for the iBridge...but I can't.
