What is your favorite Sci-Fi show of all times and why?

I want to say Star Trek: TOS, but then I see the X Files mug sitting on my desk....oh wait, my Captain Kirk doll is right next to it! So, yes, Star Trek is definitely my favorite. I just absolutely adore the diversity (for it's time) of the crew, and each episode is like an amazing little gem of '60s fabulosity. The relationships really resonate with me (friendships are important!), the action sequences alternate between intense and hysterical, and, seriously. William. Shatner. He is just as hilarious in-person as he is on-screen.

What sci-fi character do you identify with the most?

Hmmmm...this is a hard one. I'd love to say that I identify most with either Starbuck or Janeway, but I don't think I'm THAT tough. I am very independent and assertive, but I would never want to be in a command position. In reality, it would probably have to be Mulder because I'm kind of gullible, and yes, I WANT TO BELIEVE. I wanted to be an FBI agent FOREVER growing up, especially after my 6-year-old heart was crushed finding out Starfleet wasn't real. I really identify with his passion for knowledge, and his unrelenting search for the truth.

What is one thing that you want us to know about you?

I'm very open to new experiences and people, I'm not just a hard-core Trekkie! My boyfriend and one of my best friends are Star Wars geeks so I'm not discriminatory in my fandom at all!

Where did you hear about our group?
