I was an infant. My father was a salesman, and returned home very late on Thursday evenings. I wouldn't sleep well until I heard his voice, so my mother kept me with her in the living room while watching Star Trek.
When I got a little older, it came on in reruns every afternoon when I got home from school, and the only thing that would keep me in bed for a nap was if I was allowed to watch Star Trek. The next day I would regale my fellow kindergarteners with tales of the previous day's rerun. I would make phasers out of cardboard and when my friends wanted to play cops and robbers, I always suggested starfleet and klingons instead. I got sent to the principal's office once in first grade because the teacher thought "asteroid" was a dirty word.
Star Trek has been a huge part of my life since literally its beginning. It will never stop until that life stops; and if there is anything beyond this life, I hope it includes access to Trekkies, because they're my people.
