I was about 4, although it was about when TNG debuted on BBC2 in the UK so I might have been younger.

I don't even know my exact age at that particular moment but I started watching VOY as I was 11. Switched to it on the TV and instantly liked it. From then on DS9, TGN and so fort.

Eight... ish.
Voyager was my first one
I loved it as a kid, now not that much. I remember that I went to see First Contact, and I haven' really known anything about TNG crew, it all seemed so strange... By then I didn't even know anything besides Voyager exists

I was 8 years old. I had to do it on the sly because my parents wanted me asleep by 8pm. And Star Trek was on at 8PM back in the 70's. I often got caught, because I couldn't contain my enthusiasm for the show. The episode I distinctly remember watching was "Balance of Terror" because I remember Kirk looking at a comet on the viewscreen. I've had my revenge many years later when I bought all three TOS seasons on DVD!

I really don't know how old I was when I first watched Trek. It's something that's just always been with me. Me and both of my parents would sit down every week and watch TNG. One Christmas when I was five-ish I got a Playmates Enterprse-D. I loved that ship! When the opening credits would roll by, I'd swoosh the toy by the TV at the same time the ship did, lol. I also recall a Geordie action figure, since as a kid he was my favorite character. Why? Because, obviously, he also starred on Reading Rainbow! That fact also somewhat confused me, as how could a blind man read children's books without his VISOR?

You're welcome

I see this little kid on your arms in your avatar. The next Trekkie Generation?

Today I'm a teacher (primary scool) and I have a very huge Trekkie in my second grade class (Germany) who greets me with the Vulcan Handsign every morning and is painting pictures of Enterprise, Borgs and other Ships and Planets.

This kid knows very well, that I am a Trekkie and a Spockian one so we two often discuss the Universe and other Trek related things - actually the movie to come, since he gets his Information from me

It makes me feel so secure about Trek to see the spirit grow in new generations.

In every franchise the youth is somewhat the basis of all market success. And of course this is the way, in fact the only way, for Star Trek to stay alive/creative. It's great to see the movie is even now making Star Trek popular again.
