Middle-aged geezer and devoted Trekker since (I believe) November 4, 1967. I saw the original Star Trek on network TV on an old fuzzy black & white screen. For some reason, our local NBC affiliate showed it at 10:30 Saturday nights. Never wrote any fan fiction but read plenty of it starting in about '69. I was in the LNNAF. I can remember manual typewriters, vinyl record players, dial telephones and when Kraith first came out.
