This exchange was so early on in the show! Season 1 or 2, I can’t quite remember. I love it.

Just finished watching season 3, & now taking a break to watch some bad movies. I can’t want TNG all the time, I get overwhelmed by all the emotions I feel about it. *_*

I’m sure every young nerdling has this experience in their growing up time, but I remember for many of my teenage years feeling ashamed of my enjoyment of Star Trek, like I’d failed some better part of me who only read Important Books and wanted to be an Important Writer when I grew up (I was a troubled teenager). Finally coming to the realization that I should embrace what I liked, admit my geekery and I’d be a much happier person was the most freeing moment of my life. 

The geek shall set you free. *_*
