I was twelve, and my first trek anything was Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home.

Three years old. Five in the evening and turned into my local station to see the ENT D stretch into warp for the TNG intro.

It and Picard (who has always been a second father to me) changed my life.

Fifth Grade, 1975. My mom got tired of me coming home from school and putting on Gilligans' Island. She told me I would like it much better. The first episode I saw was Balance of Terror. Been hooked since.

One of my fondest memories was Saturday afternoons in the mid-90s. It was Sci-Fi Saturday on WNAC Fox 64 in Providence, RI. At 2pm, they had Hercules, 3pm Xena, 4pm TOS, 5pm TNG, and 6pm DS9. Also, TOS was on every weeknight at 5pm with TNG at 6. Over the course of a few years, I saw almost every episode.

In 1992, I was 9 when TNG was airing. That's when I started watching.
