I realized, while shaving yesterday, that it was ten years ago, this very week, that I discovered online Star Trek fandom.
And it was a very narrow part of fandom that I found.
It was Star Trek novels fandom. On the old Pocket Books Bulletin Board.
A bunch of people I “met” ten years ago this week. Jim McCain. Alex Rosenzweig. David Henderson. Corey Tacker. Bob Manojlovich. John “JJ” Ordover. Within a year, people like Baerbel, and Gillian, and authors like Susan Shwartz. And in April ’98 I picked up a novelization of a FOX television movie called Gargantua.
Ten years. Star Trek fandom.
Things change in ten years. Things change a lot in ten years.
Raise a glass. 🙂
