My first Trek Experience was with the Original Series when I was 10 years old, and since then I was hooked. In fact, it wasn’t until the premier of The Next Generation that I became a full on Trekkie. I remember reading about the new series on the back of a serial box while getting ready for school. There were factoids about the series and some photos of the ship and crew. but what really stood out was a large photo of Jean Luc Picard posing with Dr. Crusher and Wesley. I cut out that cereal box back and kept it for as long as I could remember it, but finally losing track of it several years later in a move. But that was my first TNG memory, and it was before the series actually premiered on TV. Going back and re-watching the whole series, I’m amazed at how much new stuff I pick up after the initial viewing of it.
