I am a trekkie and have been since star trek TOS and i`m proud to admit it.

if any of the statements below apply to you it could be that you are a trekkie and dont even know it.

You Might Be A Trekkie If!

your fantasy includes Lt. Uhura sitting on the edge of your bed saying "Hailing frequencies open"...
you've ever been in a fist fight over who is better Captain Picard or Captain Kirk...
you think that Captain Janeway is sexier than Princess Leia...
your screen saver says "Resistance is futile, you will be assimilated"...
you find yourself in a jam and say "Scotty, beam me up!"...
you believe that Ross Perot owns a copy of the Ferengi Rules of Acquisition...
you believe Ross Perot is a Ferengi...
someone says good morning to you and you answer "Ka Plah!"...
you know the proper Vulcan greeting and response...
your girlfriend tells you "it's either me or Star Trek!" and you wave good-bye...
you think Hillary Clinton would look good in Lt. Uhura's uniform...
you wrote in James T. Kirk for President with running mate Pavel Chekov...
you walk into your kitchen and look for a replicator...
you think Kahless will come back before Jesus Christ...
you can tell the difference between a Vulcan and a Romulan...
you can name all the people who have ever been captain of the Enterprise...
you think Q-Tips is a self-help book written by a certain Star Trek villain...
you have the Klingon version of Hooked on Phonics...
you find a hairball and think it's a Tribble...
you believe there is an alternate universe where you are captain of the Enterprise...
you learned to pick up women by watching Captain Kirk...
you keep flipping open your cell phone hoping to get a communique from Scotty...
you here someone say "he's an enterprising young man," and you look for his communicator...
you get in your car and say engage...
you believe George Lucas is the Anti-Christ..

You forgot the "You know the Rules of Acquisition by heart."

Peace and long life.

Edit: "Ka Plah!" should be Qapla'!

Well, there was that one episode of VOY (can't recall which one, because this moment is all I remember of it) with Janeway in a tank top, hair mussed, toting a compression phaser rifle...

When I make you breakfast in bed, a simple "thank you" is all I need. Not all this "who are you and how did you get into my house" nonsense.

I don't know if Kahless will be back before JC, but I do thank him now and again...

Does that count?

How 'bout "No". Capt. Erika Benteen, maybe, but Janeway's psychopathy turns me off.

It's spelled "Qa'pla!"

Quote:

"Live long and prosper." "Peace and long life."

Dear God, pass the brain bleach, please.

Quote:

Easily. Romulans have paler, often green-tinged skin, and often a ridged forehead.

Quote:

Prime timeline, counting STO: Jonathan Archer, Robert April, Christopher Pike, James T. Kirk, John Harriman, Rachel Garrett, Jean-Luc Picard, William T. Riker (if you count his brevet captaincy in BOBW), Data, Va'kel Shon. EDIT: Forgot Edward Jellico.

JJverse: Archer, Pike, Spock, Kirk.

Quote:

Try Brannon Braga for driving the prime timeline into the ground. While I'm at it, the entire executive cadre of the Syfy channel for killing the Stargate franchise, and Fox for raping Firefly to death.

George Lucas is all right if he's got someone with the authority to tell him, "No, George, that's stupid."

Big Q. Little a. Little p. Little l. Little a. Apostrophe (glottal stop.) Exclamation point.

That's how you spell Qapla'!

Edit: also, no. I'm not a trekkie like you. I'm a Trekkie like me. I'm the only Trekkie who's like me.

yes to all who have pointed out Qapla'! is misspelt, this was the final test cunningly hidden within the text to see if you are realy trekkies or just imposters posing as them.
having said that its nice to see there are a few out there that realy are trekkie enough to point out my (deliberate) error, when I think how many play the game its a shame there wasn't more.
