Great thread!

I have always enjoyed Star Trek. I started out watching TNG at 6pm on FOX every day when I was a kid, jumping around and ducking from the warp nacelles.
My mom had various TOS movies on VHS and I would watch those, too, though I didn't see the actual series until they appeared as reruns on basic TV. Since then I have watched each series multiple times. I say that TNG is still my favorite, followed by DS9, then Voyager, then TOS, then (like Pluto's distance or even further behind the others) Enterprise.

I've never gone to any conventions or anything like that. I do use a lot of random Star Trek catchphrases at opportune times. Sadly, only people who have seen the related episodes know what I'm referring to when I make these silly statements in relation to a real life situation.

I've been planning to be a Klingon for Halloween for a long time, I just never get around to making the costume. Maybe this year.

I wanna see photos when you make the Klingon costume.
I have "trained" my friends with catchphrases.They know that when i say something they don't understand,it's propably from Star Trek

Anyway,my friend finally uploaded some videos of the Greek star trek convention.

2 videos from Marina's Q&A session,1 with Janet Nemecek and Lolita Fatjo and 1 with Dominic Keating and Connor Trineer.
There are more and i'm sure she will upload them in time.
Each video is about an hour long and really funny.

Noel Clarke
Unknown character.People who watched "doctor who" know him as Mickey.

Nazneen Contractor
Will play the wife of Noel Clarke's character.

Alice Eve

So my friends 1 year and 14 days remain until premiere.
And we will have to postpone the end of the world from December 21st to after May 17th.I'm not losing the movie because the Mayas didn't know Star Trek

Excellent, I hope it's a good one. It's always funny to see people wearing regular jackets over the Star Trek uniforms and see the vulcan hair blowing in the wind.

I don't always drink coffee, but when I do, I drink Raktajino.

The easiest version is: 1 packet pre-made hot chocolate to 1c black coffee.

The version I make when I have more time: Combine 1.5tbsp unsweetened cocoa, 1 tbsp sweetener, 1tbsp creamer, dash of cinnamon or nutmeg if desired and mix well. Add to 2c black coffee..

I've tried various versions, but I like it fairly thick to "swig" as I drink.

I dislike coffee, btw, because it tastes extremely bitter to me. But, since drinking Raktajino, I can actually handle it and even like the taste (only when mixed though). /highfive Klingons!

Thanks for that.I'll try it when i get home.I love coffee and this sounds yammy.

I tried once the Romulan ale recipe that's around the net and then i understood why it's illegal in the Federation

It comes with a warning

When i asked a barman fiend of mine to make it for me,his response was
o you want to kill yourself?If you are not into alcohol don't try it.

I'm not at all into alcohol, but I will try pretty much any drink - just to see what it tastes like.

Mostly, though, I can take only a few swigs before the "alcohol" taste gets too strong to bear. This is basically the same reason I don't like coffee - there is an overwhelming bitterness that I can't get rid of on my circumvallate papillae. After a couple of drinks, all I can taste is the bitterness. *shrug*

Anyway, I have been considering brewing my own absinthe. So, this might just be a side project.

Thanks for the idea.

greetings all, perhaps you can help me with this as I am not as well versed in start trek as I would like to be. I think I have noticed a slight "oops" in the DS9 series. if you haven't watched this series and intend to, avoid this post as it contains a bit of a spoiler. in the intro we see ds9 with all upper and lower docking pylons intact. at the end of episode 7 right as the credits start to roll ds9 was missing a lower pylon it looked like it had been sheared off. I thought I might have fallen asleep on an episode or something so I googled "what happened to ds9's missing pylon" come to find out they did lose a pylon however it's not till season 4 and its an upper pylon O_o I thought it might have just been a trick of lighting but you can see the other pylons lit up at angles that should show the bottom of the missing pylon if it was there to be obscured partially by a shadow. thoughts?

I've never noticed that. It may have just been an accident, or the pylon might be obscured in shadow. It's possible that they might have just used a piece of artwork that was unfinished or had been removed from the storyline. Interesting nonetheless. I'm watching Voyager right now, but may end up watching DS9 next.

Sorry i missed your post.

I haven't noticed a missing pylon either.Next time i watch a DS9 episode i will try to check it out.I remember 6 pylons,all through the 7 seasons(3 upper and 3 lower).

Great thread, Phantom Traveler! I am a hardcore trekkie and feel right at home on this thread. I noticed you added me as an ATS friend. Very kind! Thanks! I think you've already seen my "look at Star Trek (TOS)" youtube tribute video. However, I'd like to post a persona poem I wrote in high school if I may be so bold. Actually, I re-wrote it again in college poetry, but I couldn't find a copy of it!

I actually re-wrote it just now for your thread. I remembered most lines perfectly. This is the third revision of my Kirk poem, especially for your thread. Hope you guys enjoy!

* * *

The final frontier—Yeah, I’m captain
Of the starship Enterprise
And I can honestly say I’ve gone where no man has gone before—
Boldy. So what?
I have problems too. Problems
That my first officer would say are illogical
But it seems like every week
There’s something I have to deal with
If it’s not another transporter malfunction
Or time displacement anomaly—it’ll be something else
And it doesn’t get any easier. Why, my uniforms burst seams
At the first sign of tribble
And you can bet Ensign Redshirt will be coming home in a body bag

We thought it would be easier “out here.” People look up
To me and I have to convince them we’re doing the right thing
We’ve stopped disease, war, hunger—
But we still don’t know how to be happy with what we have
And it’s hard making them believe we’re doing the right thing
when every Klingon in the quadrant wants to collect
The price on my head. Being a starship captain isn’t
Anything like I’d thought. I still don’t know what the right thing is
But faking it gets you in the captain’s chair

It’s year 3 of our 5-year mission and I’ve already sought out more antivirals
For sexual diseases than new civilizations—
McCoy can’t even look me in the face sometimes
No, we thought “out here” that our problems
Would fall to the past—when we were brutes and savages
Prejudice, racism, hate nearly destroyed the human race
But it’s a species-only club now. The only good Klingon
Is a dead Romulan and the only good Romulan is a dead Klingon
Let them kill each other. It’ll clear up the stench

I want so badly to be the man we came out here to be
Stepping into that transporter and onto a new planet, I want
To be who they think I am. I want to be the transformed man
The one who can admit he has faults, the one
Who doesn’t have all the answers. I want someone to know
My wants and desires— what I want to name my first kid
and how I’d spend hours playing chess with him
What I really want isn’t the green animal women
But the feeling that I belong
In this space

Personal log stardate 4411.6 ended.

I would not recommend stealing this poem from me as I have already tried submitting it for publication (it didn't make the cut from my portfolio
