This is my story, RE: Star Trek

My first memory of Star Trek is sitting on the yellow plush carpet of my next door neighbours house at 6pm, watching Kirk, Spock, Bones and the gang. I think I remember it was a Song Trinatron, maybe the one with the square pixels, although that may be a random memory from somwhere else.

I went to a creation con in Buffalo with some friends. Over the years, I went to several. I remember seeing Sulu, Crusher, Troy and I think I saw some others too. Creation stopped coming around or I stopped looking. I’ve been to the Toronto Trek once, but didn’t go in.

I remember the oopla with the permier of Next Generation.

I saw the last episode of it on the big screen at the Skydome in Toronto. At the time, it was the largest Jumbotron in the world.

I have seen every episode of Star Trek, and know to call it TOS. (The original series)
I know all the actor names, the character names. I’ve seen all the movies several times, many I saw at the theatres on opening day. All up to #6 I think.

I have seen every episode of Next Generation many times. I know some character names, a few planet names, and can quote many story lines, and bits. I watched every one live during the first run, and watched them every day for years.

I have seen every episode of Deep Space Nine, Voyager and almost every episode of Enterprise. I still watch them in reruns when they’re on.

Like most, I tend to like the even numbered films, but not out of loyalty to the curse or princiuple.

I couldn’t care less if you c all me a Trekkie or Trekker. I have seen both the Trekkies films, and more ABOUT TREK documentaries than most.

I like to feel proud that I understand Trek on multiople levels, and enjoy the characters as well as the stories, and understand what they’re trying to say.

I have fours books, and one DVD. I own a couple of freely donated action figures and a lego-like Spock, all of which I aquired free from the Internet’s Free-Cycle concept.

I guess I’m more than a medium fan.

What I do not do, is try to recruit others.
I don’t dress up.
I don’t know all the episode names or freakish trivia.
I wouldn’t win any contests.
I know people on the other side of the superfan line.

Breaking News

I know what a news break is but I'm not positive I fully understand what breaking news is I had assumed that it is news they interrupt whatever you were doing to tell you about, which should be significant. Breaking news is not always significant It's just current and...

I was almost at the steps to the house when I turned my back and the rooster. It's usually a safe spot especially since the food is a long way away. I think you may be mad because I didn't bring out a fifth portion for him which for a while I was doing,   It's so...

Afternoon Feeding conflicts

I placed the majority portion of food in the elevated area near the door. Because, it had rained earlier, I had to reach to grab the main dish, flip it over and let the water out as everyone came running, eager for their dinner portions.   I set my defence stick...

Mojo and Me

Mojo and Me

I learned the name of the rooster's mojo but I prefer calling it the rooster anyway because calling it by its name implies some form of relationship. I suppose in a way we do have an adversarial relationship he wants to attack me and I want to avoid being attacked. He...
