I have been madly in love with Star Trek since I was 12 years old and discovered the original in it’s second season.
My father wouldn’t let me watch Star Trek because it gave my sister nightmares. She’d wake up the whole house with her whining and crying. It wasn’t until my freshman year in college, when I discovered a student Star Trek Club watching the first season in the student union lounge, that I finally got to watch the whole series.
That said, I am a Next Generation junkie. I still have a mad crush on Patrick Stewart.
I never got in to TNG. Strange because I was SO madly in love with the original. And I am sure enjoying ALL of the Star Trek movies!
And he does a lot of commercial voiceovers, so we can still hear him!!! LOL
BWAHAHA!!!! Love that!
Oh, gosh, I LOVED “Star Trek,” too!!!!
I was a little older than you were (15 when it debuted, I think), but still enthralled. Like “The Twilight Zone” (and the mountains of sci-fi I read) it helped to shape my view of the world. When “Star Trek: The Next Generation” came on, I was a BIG fan of it, too. The Star Trek movies? Not so much; I don’t know why.
I was lucky in that it played every weekday, after school (and my brother watched, so I was able to, too!). It was in reruns but that meant EVERY DAY!
Every day! So jealous! 😀
And NOW we have it digitally, so you can watch it everyday all day long!
I grew up watching Star Trek with my dad.
Yay, dad! The worst punishment of my early teen years was to be grounded from watching Star Trek. And it only came on once a week. And no reruns. And I had a very smart mouth.
Boyfriend and I sometimes watch Star Trek reruns now – we like to bet how many minutes it will take for Capt. Kirk to hook up with the seductive alien. Usually it’s within 10 minutes of the opening credits.
Oh, yes, we had Captain Kirk’s number, even at age 12!
I watched it originally too, and then in my junior high through college days, it was on every weekday at 4 PM. Just in time to get home, grab a snack, and tune in. Halfway through college they moved it to 10:30 which fit my schedule at the time better anyway.
