Hi! I am new to the forum. Just started watching Voyager

7 posts in this topic

Hello Everyone!

I am new and I just wanted to drop in and say "hi" to all on these forums. I am a big TNG fan mostly but just started watching Voyager the past few weeks and finding a whole new "love" of Star Trek.

I was away at college during Voyager's original run on television. Since "cable tv" was a passable "luxury" for a starving student (sorry, no Netflix in the 90's), I never really had the opportunity to watch and see how wonderful Voyager was.

I've never seen Enterprise past the first episode and still have yet watch Deep Space Nine too!

Since college, all of my Star Trek viewing was limited to TNG whenever/wherever I could find it.

I am so happy to have taken a leap and see what Voyager was all about. What-a-show!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am halfway through the Voyager adventure and into a bit of season 4 where Seven of Nine has just joined the crew (RIP Kes). I am enjoying the show incredibly and it has come along at just the right time in my life.

I've been binge watching a few episodes per day so it's so hard to pick out a particular favorite since the storylines run altogether for me.

A recent favorite was "Insurrection" where the popular holo-novel depicting a "Maquis Mutiny" became popular among the crew members. The whole episode was a roller coaster ride! From the beginning where you're thinking, "This has got to be a holo deck program or an alternate parallel universe! There's no way Chakotay would overthrow Janeway!" to the climactic ending with a virtual Seska going on a rampage. This is just one of many mind-bending episodes so trademark with the Star Trek universe and yet one of the many reasons why I love to watch.

Anyhow, I would love to talk Voyager if anyone wants to talk Voyager (no spoilers please!). I would also like to talk about TNG and of course open to pretty much any Star Trek related discourse.

Anyhow, thanks for the welcome and I look forward to getting to know you all!

Welcome! Not much traffic coming through these days, but the Trek forum is still there for all your Voyager discussion needs.

Thanks for the welcome! No worries on amount of people coming through. Just one or two trek geeks to post with is just fine. I don't need a "galaxy class" forum when your "intrepid class" will do just fine (see what I did there?). hehe.

I'll be passing through frequently. Count on it :)

Welcome to the Observation Lounge! I hope you enjoy your visits here. As DMD said, the place is a little slow these days, but there are few regulars who pop up now and then.

Welcome aboard. This is very exciting. It has been a while since I watched any episodes of Voyager but I'm sure I remember enough to get involved in some discussions.

You know what's depressing?  This guy came here two years ago, made this big introduction, made eight posts, and then gave up on us.  Last recent hope of a resurrection...

Yes, but I'm not sure what can be done about it. He wasn't ignored, there just isn't enough traffic to keep people around. I suspect even Discovery won't change that appreciably.
