I grew up watching the TOS reruns, but after awhile none of the local stations had them. I was so excited when TNG was announced, because there was finally going to be new Star Trek! I was less enthusiastic about the shows that followed, but eventually became a loyal viewer.
I had rented or had seen on TV all of the movies at one time or another. Generations was the first one I saw in theaters. Insurrection was the last.
I had read or or two novels, but never go into them. But one day I found like 21 (mostly TOS & TNG & a couple of DS9) at the local Goodwill which triggered a years-long quest to read as many as possible, which continues to this day. If anyone is interested, here's a like of the ones I like.
I've seen all 5 series captains (and a few other Trek people) at Dragon-Con in 2009 & 2010, but didn't get autographs because of the cost. If anyone is interested, my post on Dragon-Con 2009 & 2010, go down to the bottom for the first posts. Feel free to comment there if you want.
