On Being a Trekkie

Tee hee. I'm not the only one!

Apparently among mommy bloggers, there are many of us who enjoy the same guilty pleasure. Many more than I would have imagined!

There are Trekkies among us. In my blog party post, I mentioned that I liked to watch reruns of Star Trek: Voyager. I was amazed at the number of comments I received from people who had similar likings to mine! (And yes, if you so much as know what a tribble is, you are a trekkie, whether or not you want to admit it! lol!)

Why have we not discussed it before? Why are we afraid to admit it?

I'll begin.

Hi, my name is Guinevere.

Hi, Guinevere.

I'm a Trekkie.

I don't think there's a 12-step program for us. We just need to be woman enough to admit that we have a problem!

Maybe it's not so much of a problem.

So I get excited by things like temporal anomalies and stellar phenomenon. Yes, I wish someone would hurry up and develop transporter technology. And a holodeck! Apparently you do too!

Tee hee. Glad to know I'm not alone!

Live long, and prosper.

You are totally not alone. I grew up with Star Trek, it is in my blood.

.. ohh .. a halodeck would be really nice - creating outdoors indoors!
we have Star Trek complete series: the original, the next generation, voyager and the enterprise. also the movies. unfortunately, we haven't found the complete set of deep space nice. i can watch them over and over. i picked up being a trekkie from dear hubby, and i love him even more for that!
i can't wait for the new Star Trek movie! i think it's going to come out in 2009! so exciting ...

Ahem. Are you aware that you can watch classic Star Trek online for free at CBS's website?

I am not a big fan, actually (though I am a huge Star Wars geek), but I do like some of the classics.

Tribbles, for instance, make me ROFL.

For many, many years I had a huge crush on Wesley Crusher.

When I was in high school I went to a Star Trek convention and got George Takei's autograph.

I have quite a few trading cards in an album in my parents' basement.

I have all the Next Generation movies in my Netflix queue, along with the first season of Enterprise. I have a problem?? :)
