I was only 3 1/2 when TOS debuted, so my first clear memories of watching it would be in its earliest syndicated run (for which I can't find an official date/year). Then I got hooked into it, as I recall it ran at 6pm weeknights so I got a steady diet of episodes to get me involved quickly. Good times!

It was the summer between 4th and 5th grade. I was 10. This was in 1994, so I had just missed the "All Good Things..." broadcast live.

My uncle was a huge Trekkie and he let me borrow the first 6 movies on VHS so I had something to watch over the summer and I was hooked. My neighbor had a huge collection of TOS and TNG on VHS as well, so I watched as many of those as I could. I was also fortunate to catch Generations on the big screen. Looking back, it wasn't as good as I thought it was, but I was finally able to see my heroes in the theater. By the end of 5th grade, I had all my friends hooked on Trek!

I cant really remember when I began to watch star trek. But it was during the [TNG] era. either the first or second season. I remember the country folk people in the cargo bay ( the Bringloidi, ( Up the long Ladder [TNG] )

Since then, I have embraced all flavours of Trek, I love it all

I was assured by my late father that I watched since the very beginning in '66, at the age of two. I can't remember a time before Trek.

I was about 3 when watched TOS in first-run. I didn't really remember that until I started watching them in syndication in the early 70's when my dad told me what I used to do as a toddler. My dad really didn't like ( and still don't like ) watching Star Trek so he would TRY to hide it from me. My dad didn't like getting up to turn the dial so one of us kids did that for him since we usually sat inches from the screen. LOL Big mistake since I would flip the dial and eventually find Star Trek. I would cry my *** off if my dad made me turn the dial. LOL

I have since seen every episode of ALL the series ( even Enterprise ) and movies several times over and have ALL of them on VHS or DVD. Since TOS are on VHS and I no longer have a VCR, I will probably pick up TOS Remastered on HD-DVD.
