Im An 18 Year Old Star Trek Fan And Dont Care What You Say

W ell I'm a  about a good 44 years late I'd say! If it was J.J Abrams plan to introduce the new generation to Star Trek he succeeded (with me anyway). Ever since I saw the new Star Trek movie's trailer last November I've been fascinated with the original series. For those eight months I eagerly awaited the release of the new movie! I also had fallen in love with the show too-watching the three seasons on line. I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm an 18 year old girl who really likes Star Trek! I even have action figures, an old tin lunchbox, and a tee shirt!

No reason to be ashamed. Glad you're not. Enjoy your awesome fandom!

Yay! I was hoping the new movie would have that effect on the younger people who were not around to experience the original first hand. Thank you J.J! <br />

On a side note, my wife would love you! I bet she has more action figures that you do. She even has two replica hand phasers displayed on her book shelf, right next to a picture of her best friend on the bridge of the NCC-1701.

Your wife is cool. Ive got a few TNG and TOS figures. Some TOS statuettes. A ST2:TWoK phased. And a TOS Enterprise sitting on my dresser. Its about 2 feet long.

I'm definitely in the Trek camp cause I'm more interested in technology than action heroism :-D

yeah I hate when people compare the two because of the similarity in the name. I can't choose though but I HAVE liked Star Wars longer...its too hard! XD

Different animals of course. Trek is about exploration, Wars is about, well, war.... Trek puts great focus on the tech and implications thereof? All they have in common is space, fiction and the word "Star"...

There's really nothing in sci-fi TV like the original series except The Next Generation (the next series in the franchise) really... Think about it... Going around to places no-one has ever been and meeting races no-one has ever met before. And they didn't just have human villains and characters, but machines as well...<br />

"Lost in Space" and "Space 1999" to some degree deliver some of that, but are sort of different animals...

I to love star trek many years ago I became an honerarie star ship officer I have the card I also have a time travlers pass port for Dr Who my champion is Lt.Ahora I too have a blue tooth in my ear
