If your woman can't appreciate geek you didn't do it right. My lady plays more games than me. She got me into the new Battlestar, for example. You don't need to choose between the things you like and a companion.

More importantly, what good is a companion that doesn't let you be yourself?

And people wonder why divorce rates have skyrocketed...

Exactly... Because people rush into relationships without considering compatibility, and before you know it she's thrown away your mint Star Wars figurine collection and you can't make it to the courthouse fast enough. If there was one thing a bad marriage taught me it was that it's better to be happily single than miserably married. There's been some kind of message sent from society that if you're not in a relationship that something's wrong with you, and I don't agree with it. Rant over.

So I got some friends together (I was 20) for the trek to Los Angeles from the suburbs. My younger brother (18) volunteered to drive (borrowed Mom's car). Then on the Friday night of the trip downtown (30 miles) younger brother talked the other 3 of us to try acid, he assured us that it was safe, he'd been doing it for a year, so we nervously agreed. OMG, what a night
Funny when you think about how long ago that was, and that I'm still sane More or less
Man I bet those are fond memories. I've never read a whole lot of the sci-fi genre, just a few books here and there. Unless you count the Dark Tower series as sci-fi, in which case, I couldn't put those books down. I used to work at a bookstore though and was amazed by the number of books based on both star wars and star trek. There are tons of novelizations, series and short stories based on those originals.

I also agree that you've got to find someone out there to share, or at least understand, the things that you're into. Being a geek and finding a GF/spouse are not mutually exclusive. My wife couldn't care less about star trek, and quite frankly I think bachelor pad is one of the worst shows in the history of tv. But if she likes it, no biggie.

So which enemy is worse, the Empire or the Borg?

Borg for sure. At least the Empire will just end you.

And even looking at the other shows mentioned in this thread - the Reavers in Firefly, and the Replicators in Stargate - are worse than the Empire. The Empire is, well, "just" an Empire.

Trek. I'm an original series fan, and found this in my local homebrew shop!
