Star Trek Blogfest



Before I tell you my favorite things about Star Trek, just know that I am a very new Star Trek fan, so my favorite people and movies to choose from are limited. (And sorry if the choices are too predictable). Anyway here I go!
Favorite People:

  1. Lieutenant Uhura
  2. Spock
  3. Kirk
  4. Sulu
  5. McCoy
Favorite Movies/Shows:
  1. Star Trek 4: The Voyage Home
  2. Star Trek (2009)
Okay and that's about all I can say, mostly because my silly parents wanted to start from the very beginning of the entire TV series. (Trust me, I've only seen the first four episodes of season one!)
Anyway, I have to say, I really love Star Trek now and am so glad I was introduced to it! Being a complete Star Wars fan helped me I think. (We should have a Star Wars Blogfest too! I might do better in that one!)

Welcome aboard. It's a wonderful world, the Star Trek world. You've got lots to watch to catch up. =D

great stuff, you have many more years of trek to love... it helps you learn about the universe, well at least told by the trek people.

I enjoyed the '09 movie immensely -- and it kindled an appreciation for the original series.

Michael Offutt said...

I love the 2009 reboot by Abrams so I'm with you on that. Plus the cast is adorable.

Ellie Garratt said...

I have to say I envy you - you're just starting out on your Star Trek journey! Yay for you!

Jess said...

Haha thanks everyone!

Isis Rushdan said...

Uhura rocks! So happy you found Star Trek. Enjoy discovering all the characters and diving into the episodes. You're going to have a blast.

Wendy Tyler Ryan said...

Your top two movies are my top two movies also. I think it's cool of you to watch the original series with your parents. Hang in there, some of them are pretty cheesy, but without them, everything would be different.

Jess said...

Isis~ Thanks so much! I can't wait to watch more LOL

Wendy~ It's kind of funny watching scenes that should be really awesome but since the graphics aren't so great they look a little cheesy. I really love the story line of all of them though!

M Pax said...

Hey, that's a great list. What's not to love about any of those characters? And you picked my two most favorite Star Trek movies. Nice meeting you :)

Danette said...

YOu cannot go wrong when you start at the beginning and you have all that great stuff to go! Cheers!

bnhutchinson said...

Welcome aboard, Hope you started with Enterprise and not the orginal series. But I loved your list, thanks!

Shiraz Akhtar said...

Hope you enjoy it. It's a whole new world out there :D

Amy said...

Great choices! I'm a huge fan of the original and the new movie too! The castings are so eerily familiar that it's perfect! :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

My wife's favorite is The Voyage Home as well.
Maybe we should toss Worf and Chewy in the ring and see what happens?

Jess said...

Thanks everyone!

Amy~ The new movie was amazing! I was really surprised!

Alex~ Chewy would win :D (Actually I don't know who Worf is... so maybe I'm wrong LOL)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Jess, either way, it would be ugly!
Oh, and thanks for signing up for my Worst Movies Ever blogfest next month.

Elizabeth Mueller said...

Jess, fantastic idea! You ought to host a Star Wars Fest! I'm glad you're enjoying Star Trek. :)

Can Alex save Winter from the darkness that hunts her?
YA Paranormal Romance, Darkspell coming fall of 2011!

Jemi Fraser said...

Love Voyage Home! So much fun :)

Love the Star Wars idea too - go for it!

Jess said...

Alex~ No problem! I can't wait! It sounds like lots of fun!

Elizabeth & Jemi~ I'm seriously considering doing a Star Wars blogfest... I'm not sure how to make one though lol

Belle said...

Voyage Home was so terrific. Glad you joined the Federation!

kelworthfiles said...

Yeah, you've got a lot of great Star Trek to look forward to. Welcome to Starfleet!

If you get a chance, check out a fellow writer's zombie story and help me make him wear an embarrassing shirt next year! It's the ultimate grudge match between social media and the zombies. Details are here:

Hello, Jess. It's good to meet you.
Don't worry that you are new to Star Trek. We're just happy you're here. You are another who mentioned Star Trek IV. I'm a huge The Wrath of Khan fan, but will have to go back and watch the fourth film again. It's been a long time.
Have a great week.

-Jimmy
