Oh yeah, you're a trekkie. You know what a Ferengi was. TNG and TOS are your favorite series. You posted on the Star Trek thread.
I'm sorry, but you've just outed yourself as a Trekkie.
I'm of the younger generation. Deep Space 9 and repeats of TNG were on playing on the TV when I was really young even if I didn't know what they were
or what was going on. All I really remember was TNG's theme music and that Odo and Quark scared me. As I said, I was way too young to appreciate the
show or even know what was going on.
I rediscovered Trek about 4-5 years ago when I was in high school. TOS' Return of the Archons was my first episode and to this day it's still probably
my favorite TOS episode.
Then there was a time later in high school when I was horribly lonely and struggling to maintain my (crappy) social life and get approval from my
circle of so-called friends. Well I was kind of new at the school too. Anyway one of them invited me to the homecoming game to help me socialize and
he ended up ditching me and leaving me alone with no ride home.
So I eventually got home pretty upset with the whole thing..I had no faith in the goodness of people. And then I checked out the TV and there was some
TNG playing. It was the episode where one of the kid's parents ends up getting killed while on an away mission and is left orphaned. And later on
Picard says something to him like, "No one is ever alone on the Enterprise."
After hearing that line, I knew I found where I belonged. I became a Trekkie
