Favourite captain: Picard – with Sisko as a close second. I loved his leadership style, his confidence and his professionalism.
Favourite Trek Series:Deep Space Nine. It started slow, but in the end had some of the best (and darkest) episodes, great story arcs, and an amazing cast of secondary characters. It was a series ahead of its time.
Farourite Episode:There are so many to choose from – especially from DS9. If I had to choose one from each series I would choose; The Galileo Seven (TOS), Best of Both Worlds (TNG), Trials and Tribble-ations (DS9), Future’s End (VOY) and Impulse (ENT).

Farourite ship:Defiant – it was great to see Starfleet create a warship for once (rather than ships of exploration) in order to face their greatest threat. Although not a nice as the Enterprise D, or as sleek as the Enterprise E, it was what a warship should look/feel like.
DS9’s “The Visitor”. This is where great science fiction can do what no other genre can. It tells a truly fantastical story, yet is incredibly human and relatable. Also, it is the episode most likely to make me cry.

Farourite non-Regular character:Toss-up between Garak and Nog. Garak – all the reasons listed by everyone on the board. Nog- I’ve always had a soft spot for him and I loved his character development throughout the seven years.

About me: I live in a small town north of Toronto (Ontario, Canada). I’ve remember watching TOS as a young kid with my Mom and Dad and fell in love with it. It took me until the second season of TNG to get hooked again and the rest is history! I am a huge collector of the action figures (400+) and I love going to the conventions to meet the actors and have them sign their action figure – which are proudly displayed on the walls of my computer room.
I work as a Paramedic and I am married with two young daughters – who I have shared my passion of Star Trek with, much to the delight of my Wife!
