TOS. It was the series that I grew up with, and that sparked my "sense of wonder." (And the babes in Bill Theiss' costumes didn't hurt either...)

Cool

Being 3 years old when TOS premiered made a big impression...but by 1975 or so I considered myself a Trekker.

TOS. I did get to see some of the original episodes on t.v., I was very young. I rediscovered Star Trek in syndication a few years later. It played and re-played and I never got tired of it. From the opening credits to the phasers, tricorders and communicators, and especially the starships. The stories were interesting, thought provoking and fun to watch. The characters were unique and well defined. What was there not to like? As big a dreamer about the future and what it could be as I am, Star Trek and I were a perfect match.

I understand how you felt. I was a Trekkie before the movie, but after TWOK, I began to realize just how big the Enterprise was. The battle with Khan on the Reliant was, and is my very favorite battle scene ever! Yes, TWOK fueled the fire and it has not been the same since.

I liked exploding spaceships as a 5 year old. I took the rest from there after seeing TWOK.
