|College fun and games. You can't see it, but I had a cool Bajoran earring.|
I grew up watching Star Trek. The original captivated me (I think it was already in reruns) and I had to watch to see what other discoveries the crew would make. When TNG came out I was hooked again. It started a little wobbly, but soon took it's place as my favorite out of all of them.
Top 5 Characters and Episodes:
Captain Picard--He made bald sexy. Calm, confident and always in control. I just loved him and wanted more men like him in my life. He took the time to think things through before jumping into the mess which meant fewer fist fights than Kirk, but that was all right with me.
My all time favorite Picard episode was "Inner Light". Picard lives an entire lifetime in moments and this one made me cry. He finally had a family of his own! And each time he played the flute left in the probe in episodes that came after this one I wanted to cry for him.
My favorite episode was "The Offspring" where Data becomes a father. Lal was a wonderful character as well and I wish she could have stuck around. This one was a tear jerker for me as well.
Since I can't think of a specific episode--let's face it, it's been a long time! Here is a fun tribute I found.
Here is a clip from "Amok Time". The things we do in the name of love, or something like it.
I loved ALL the episodes with Q ((Encounter at Farpoint, Hide and Q, Q Who, Deja Q, Qpid, True Q, Tapestry, All Good Things).
