When i was a little girl i had a crush on Captian Kirk. When the next generation came around it was Picard. I know there's a debate as old as my crushes and I've never chosen. I'd be happy to have them both in my sci-fi fantasy world.
I don't remember seeing much of the original Star Trek as a kid. But I was in my 20s when Next Generation came out and I was HOOKED! I was in the Air Force and stationed in Italy, but we carried it on American Forces Network (which is where I worked.) I was married at the time, and I told my husband that I had only ONE demand in the relationship: I wanted to be undisturbed during that one hour per week when the show was on. He could go outside, upstairs, or preferably out with his friends. I just wanted one hour a week alone...with Captain Picard. Oh how I fantasized about being crew on the Enterprise!
