Well i would just like to say hello to everyone.
I am Colin and i have been listening to the show for about 18 months now and finally got round to joining the forums.
I do not get on line much about once or twice a week as i work shifts, but i do listen to a lot of podcasts and play Star Trek on line.
I decided to bite the bullet and sign up after listening to Mr Moyers podcast and the Just because podcast and them remarking what a great community it is here. Lots of feedback lots of podcasters and all inspired by one man who over 5 years ago started a little podcast. From little acorns big oak trees grow, this community is very much that.

So about me well i am 40 and have been into star trek for as long as i can remember. I first saw it on the BBC re runs in the late 70's (yes i am English) and was hooked.
I have watched all the original series,Tng, voyager and about 80% of DS9 and enterprise, hopefully the blue rays will appear soon and i can start buying them.
I love sci fi and as a kid over here i got to watch some really good shows growing up, Thunderbirds, space 1999, UFO, battle star galatica, Dr who and so on.
I love a good sci fi book and read Stephen Baxter, Asimov, Phillip K dick and others but i also have a passion for history it was my main at college. So i also read factual books and listen to factual podcasts.
I am in twitter and "follow" a few trek types on there like Mr Nimoy and Mr Shatner, i listen to a vast variety of music depending on my mood from Rock to classical and everything in between.
I love science and Gadgets, well i am a guy so boys and there toys and all that. I also like to catch a movie now and then and my favourite is Blade runner with Harrison Ford. We don't have NetFlix over here or i guess i would watch more, but i do like a good movie be it Action,suspense, Thriller or Scifi. The only films i don't really watch are horror i find them predictable or they go for the gore factor, which to me is not the least bit entertaining.
But life is not all serious i like a laugh i love the Star Trek parodies site, thankyou for taking the time to entertain us with that,plus i listen to the " just because" podcast as i have previously stated. I mean a podcast about anything how random and unpredictable is that.
But let us not forget that the reason i and you are here is because of Treks in Sci fi, where a man shares his geeks passions and little bits of his life in order that we may be entertained and he does it so very well.
I thank you Rico for the unending pleasure you have given to my ears, now i look forward to getting to know lots of you and hopefully making a few friends along the way.
