Memory Alpha

Dif-tor heh smusma, fellow Trekkies and/or Trekkers! So how did I get interested in Star Trek? I guess it was fate. Shortly after discovering that I had the same birthday as Leonard Nimoy, the seeds of interest were planted. For several years, that faint interest went unrealized; the only Star Trek related things I saw around that time were the movies The Search for Spock and The Voyage Home. I barely remember either of these now; I didn't really know what was going on, so most of it went right over my head. It wasn't until the Remastered editions of TOS started showing in 2006 that I could truely become obsessed. The first episode I ever saw was "The Devil in the Dark," which certainly has its place on my list of favorites, but I can now reference "The Trouble with Tribbles," "Journey to Babel," "Amok Time," "Friday's Child," "I, Mudd," and "The Immunity Syndrome" as some of the best I've ever seen. And my interest in Mr Spock (and Vulcans in general) remains, as is evidenced by my user name; in fact, you might even call me a bit of a Vulcanologist (hee hee hee). Finding Memory Alpha made me very, very happy, and I am looking forward to the chance to help keep it going. I also know both tlhIngan pIqaD (the Klingon alphabet) and the Golic Vulcan Common Script, as well as several non-Trek related alphabets.

Star Trek shots I absolutely loved.


This is one of the best parodies I've ever seen. This link is to the TOS one, but you can navigate back to his main page and find ones for all the other series. [Who Shall Bring Us Light?] Want a parody that's a bit more, well, random? This ought to meet your criteria. It also gets slightly inappropriate at times, but there's nothing really bad. [Parody] Not random enough? Then check out this. These people are very, very strange. Check out the image gallery. [Leonard Nimoy Should Eat More Salsa Foundation] Lots and lots of humorous Star Trek related lists. i like "Advantages to Kirk's Toupee." [Lists] This is kinda fun. It told me I alogn with T'Pol and Picard . . . Really don't know if I should be happy or not . . . [Star Trek Personality Test] This one isn't purely Star Trek, though there IS a reference to "The City on the Edge of Forever". It's a combination of "Pirates of the Caribbean" and "Lord of the Rings," and it's pretty funny. [The Curse of the One Ring]
