TNG and Me

Sci-fi blogs, websites and magazines are a buzz talking about Star Trek The Next Generations 25th Anniversary. As many of our readers know, we grew up on TNG and would like to share our journey with the Next Generation.

I don't remember the first time I watched TNG just the challenge of tricking my parents into letting me. Because I don't remember how old I was when this happened I googled the UK air date and am surprised to find it was 1990.  Once I was tucked in bed I would stay awake and listen really hard to the TV.
