Trekkies and Trekkers from around the world let's unite!!!!!



I was thinking about creating a Star Trek thread for a while,but never came around to do it.
Today it's kind of a special day,coz it's William Shatner's birthday(HAPPY BIRTHDAY BILL )





Sooooooo let's share our love for Star Trek.
Pics,jokes,favourite moments,episodes,quotes,trivia,news,music.Anything Star Trek related is welcome here.

Oh and for those who have doubts if you are Trekkies...You might be a Trekkie if:

1.Your mother knits you a Captains Jacket for Christmas.
2.Your friends ask you if you want to watch a movie and you say ,"Put it on screen."
3.You can fluently speak in Klingon.
4.you speak "hailing frequencies open" instead of "speak after the tone" on your answering machine.
5.you tell the taxi driver to "engage".
6.you ask at the airport at which stardate the shuttle will depart.
7.you step into an elevator and say "Deck one Please
8.Your girlfriend wonders just why you bought all that green makeup at 70% off, during the after Halloween sales...
9.Jolene Blaylock has a restraining order against you.
10.you have SERIOUSLY tried to give someone the "Vulcan Nerve Pinch.
11.You only go to doctors with southern accents, long red hair, who are genetically enhanced, or... etc.
12. you have been sworn in at court with one hand on the bible and the other in a vulcan salute.
13.you pretend Spaghetti is Klingon gagh and start eating it with you hands.
14. you get mad that your favorite local resteraunt does not carry Klingon Blood Wine or Romulan Ale.
15.your car license plate cover says ...my other car is the Enterprise.
16.you gave all your red shirts to people that you don't like.
17.you actually know that the prime directive isn’t “to boldly go where no man has gone before” and what it actually is.
18.you’re certain that the shooting star you just saw was an exploding borg cube
19.you can name the bridge crew for the original series.
20.you can name the members of each bridge crew and their rank for the Next Generation series.
21.you can name the bridge crew, their rank, and their species for Voyager.
22.you know the different classes of starships.You also know the top warp speed, inertial damper tolerances, and standard weaponry of each class.
23.You have an inexplicable urge to pull the legs off your hamster to make a tribble.
24.you own a Star Fleet manual…
25.you read The Physics of Star Trek and came up with counter arguments to the mentions of General Relativity as it applies to Star Trek.
26.you’ve ever worn a pair of Vulcan Ears.

I can't wait for 2013. Looking forward to what JJ abrams has planned. I was just blown away by the latest movie. I really enjoy all of the series.

Do you think "Enterprise" would have been a hit were it not for the lamest theme song in history? Most couldn't make it past that to see what the series had to offer..

Just my personal opinion, but the Star Trek universe was far more captivating than Star Wars.

S+F just for changing the subject....

Although J.J broke my heart when he destroyed Vulcan,i loved the movie and i know that the next one is going to be awesome as well.

I liked Enterprise very much and i hated the song.Dominic Keating sings a much improved version



The made an amazingly funny commercial for Enterprise.


I agree Star Trek is way better than Star Wars.

In all reality though, if all nations put forth their resourses, and made ourselfs into a resource economy, imagine what we would accomplish.

That is actually the message of Star Trek.If we unite we can achieve a lot.But instead of using the resources to go to the stars we use them to create weapons and kill our neighbours.
We let things like color,religion,politics and money to seperate us and we can't see that only if we stop all that we will achieve much greater things.

It's a shame.I hope one day humans will grow up.

Tribble tribble tribble tribble, tribble tribble tribble.
tribble tribble tribble but i think tribble tribble tribble tribble tribble also.

The trouble with tribbles is they tripple rather fast.

And seeing as this is a Star Trek themed thread and it's related "Earthly" connections.. anyone want to fly their own starship?
Star Trek Online

I'm currently flying an Escort ship with Borg assimilations


Happy trekking everyone..

Tribble tribble

Ahh my weakness is Star Trek


I have a TON of ST collectables, cards, etc, and it seems no matter how poor I have gotten, I just cannot part with them rofl

My favorite piece is a picture of the original crew, signed by all of them, including Gene Roddenberry. I adore that thing lol


ST, to me, represents a possible goal that humanity COULD strive for, if we only were to give ourselves a chance to DO so. But, when I see what's happening in the world, I remind myself that, even in the ST universe, it took humanity quite some time to get there, an there was a lot of strife between.

So, could still happen



Anyhow, celebrate te possibilities, and enjoy the journey!
