Hello

Just thought I'd introduce myself. I'm Elizabeth, but you can call me Liz, Ellie, or whatever you'd like.

I've been a Trekkie for years. While I was nowhere near being born when TOS aired, (My mother was born in 62, I was born 92) The Original Series and TNG are both absolutely my favorite. Hence why I picked ElizabethKirk.

My favorite characters are Kirk, Spock, Bones, Picard, Crusher (both).

I'm also a huge fan of the reboot. Chris Pine is undoubtably hot. Can't forget Quinto.

I was on Youtube when I came across this, a small video playing in the corner and its like OMGREALLY!? When I saw the little video for it, I got a big high.

So taking a small break from reading 2009/TOS fanfiction on Fanfiction.net, I just had to do it.

Anyways, I don't know anybody here. So, if you'd like to talk, I'm here!

Thanks,
Ellie

Hello Elizabeth, I'm Nero...wait, nevermind. Anyway, welcome to the game, but I would recommend avoiding the forums for a couple of days. They just made a big change and its mostly rage at the moment. Check back in a week or so and hopefully it will be the typical game related rage again :tongue:

Welcome to STO, Miss Kirk.
Hope you survive the experience.
Of note, avoid the forums until the regulars here manage to get all their "mad" out about the recent sweeping changes that have left many ... shall we say ... enraged.

Oh I've finally seen all the other posts. I didn't realize things were just changed! (I always seem to come in a bit late....)

I would however like to thank you guys for replying to my thread, and politely, I may add. I have no doubt we'll one day be fellow trekkie friends. (If I don't bug ya all to death with my obsession over this.)

Waiting until the madness is over shouldn't be too hard, as I have school 2 days a week and work the rest. College is madness in itself and so is my job, but I'm pretty sure coming on in the evenings will be a treat in itself.

Nice to meet you all!!

We can be trekkie friends now if you'd like... I can send you a friend request in game if you want, seeing as how PWE broke it here on the website.

Really?!?

You just made my day!

I swear I'm more mature than I appear on this board. I tend to be.... overly...excited at times?

But YES, please do!

Just let me know when your game installs. Here are a few primers to the chat system:

All maps are divided into several zones, depeding on how many people there are. Until you have 20 hours of play, you can only use local chat which is visible to people only in your zone. After 20 hours of play, you can talk in zone chat which is visible to everyone. In ESD (Earth Spacedock) and DS9 (ok, that one's pretty obvious) I highly suggest turning off the zone chat (there is some real garabage talk in there). On the left side of the chatbox is a chat settings button and you can disable whatever channels you want. I can walk you through the rest when your game's installed.

Hi Liz. I've only been around for a few days longer than you, so...ya know...you're not alone.
But, born in '92, you say? I have a bottle of Scotch that's as old as you (you can imagine a non-Scottish Scottish accent there if you like ). You've also made an early-middle-aged man feel very old, so thanks for that! lol.

Did they? Have to say it would've been easier receiving friend requests on this side. I've accepted a couple of friend requests in-game and I have no idea who they are!
Granted they asked for a reason - team game (accepted) and fleet membership (declined) - but...
(And for the record, I have no idea how to do a lot of the social-side stuff in-game. I'll learn eventually, I'm sure - probably about the time the game's closed down!)
