Well, for me, it all
started innocently enough back about midway through Season one. It was late
on a Saturday night and I was waiting for hubs to come home from work, and
frankly, I was BORED. I don't know what made me do it, but I turned on the
TV. There on my TV screen appeared this blond guy who was in blue underwear
running around on what looked like either a space station or a spaceship. I
had no idea what I was watching, but this guy was sooo cute, I kept on
watching. I just HAD to find out who this was, and why he was in his
underwear. Well, it turned out to be "Enterprise", and of course, it was
Trip in the episode "Acquisition". I was hooked! And so my passion for this
show began, as did my admiration for Connor Trinneer.
I figured I had missed quite a bit of the first season, so I began to slowly
get copies of some of the shows I had missed. This quickly became my Can't
Miss Show. Nothing came between me and my Enterprise! I even got my dear
hubby to watch...and he does not like sci-fi at all.
I have gotten so into the show, I began to look back at Voyager and Deep
Space Nine also. I had not seen any of the Voyager series in its original
run, and none of DS9 for a long time. I guess you could say thanks to
Enterprise, I got back into Trek in a BIG way. I've also actually purchased
the Enterprise action figures, something I had never done for anything
before in my life. And I even thought of going to a Trek convention, also
not something I had ever even given a fleeting thought to before!
I have not personally met any of the Enterprise actors or fans, but I can
say I have found some wonderful people due to this show. You could not find
a nicer, friendlier bunch of folks anywhere like the ones I've come to know
thanks to places like "House of Tucker". I will miss the show like crazy
when it ends its run, but there are always the DVDs and websites.
And to think....it all started with me wanting to kill a little time! The
fates were kind when they somehow led me to pick up my remote and turn on
