My Journey To Trek
I remember the first time... I was 11 years old, it was a rainy night round 10 pm. I couldn't sleep and I was just browsing on the TV. Upon searching for something I can fell asleep on I've accidentally found myself in the battle scene from the epic Star Trek movie Wrath of Khan. I do not have to go into details that it did not help me going to sleep, but made me wonder what I've just seen. Next morning I opened up the TV guide and found out that the movie will be in a repeat a few days later followed by the rest of them. My curiosity quickly turned into to a big interest about the series. Soon I was collecting the pictures from the TV guide, getting pictures from the web and record music with my radio recorder onto tape. I know, I know, sounds a bit old school, but hey... I was very young and it was a great fun back then. ;)
Since the first encounter of course, I had the chance to explore the universe of Star Trek. I started my long journey with the 4th series in line, Star Trek Voyager that inspired me soo much back in the early days of my life. :) Deep Space Nine was the second series that I watched in it's entirety and they both guided me through the years. With time I've got introduced to The Next Generation, Enterprise and lastly I have managed to watch The Original Series and also The Animated Series that took my breath away. Over 23 years now I think I can safely say: Star Trek has been a really big part of my life and I cannot wait to share my passion through this website. :)
More Than A Trekkie
Obviously I'm not just a Trekkie - or Trekker if you prefer that way - as I do enjoy watching a lot of great TV show. Somehow I always believed that the golden age of TV was in the 80's and the 90's era. We can argue on this I know, but for me TV shows like Knight Rider, SeaQuest, X-Files paved the path towards Trek. Movies like The Last Starfighter, Men in Black, Ghostbusters, Back to the Future also brought a new light into the big picture. Nowadays I don't really have a lot of time to dive myself into too much TV series despite the fact I do have a Netflix account, but whenever I can, I watch Doctor Who. I've got to know this regenerative alien who goes where he/she needs to go and helps people. The story is just as remarkable as the Doctor him/her self.
