My user name is a moniker that I came up when I owned a Voyager minivan (complete with mobility equipment for my disabled husband). My kids loved the show Star Trek: Voyager so we used to pretend the van was a starship. I was like Captain Janeway (except I piloted the van which, admittedly, makes me more like Tom Paris). Thus, I drove the Starship Minivan.

My now college-aged kids, when on a quest for caffeine, still often repeat one of Janeway's lines from Voyager: "There's coffee in that nebula!" So, instead of coffee, I filled my favorite mug with the beautiful Fox Fur Nebula.

No, we're not Star Trek nerds at all...

PaNTS! Performing?? Care to elaborate?

Yup.  I do plays (straight and musical), and I used to be a singer for several bands.

Few people realize that PANTS! is actually Bruce Dickinson.

Nah, I just have trouble finding water, and I bother random people at parties.*

"EvilNick," in some capacity is just an easy go-to for character names in video games.  If I play as a female character, it gets even lamer:  FemNick or She-Nick or something in that capacity.

And my avatar is former scientist-turned-warrior-turned-perpetual-political-usurper extraordinaire: Starscream.

I was Vis Major on Prodigy back in law school in the 80's  We all had some legal term as usernames.  I've kept it.  Lately I've shortened it to Vis when available.

I have started scrolling through BLC* threads looking for the first post post crash. Vis (belated) welcome to SGUF. I'm a relative noob myself.

That is awesome. A friend of mine noticed the Shuttlecraft Minivans back in the day, and I was very impressed.



Did you watch TNG, or just VOY? I've seen most of trek, but not all of VOY or ENT.

Holy crap, I never realized the shuttlecraft looked like minivans. 

Mind = blown.

Wow!! That does look like a shuttlecraft. My old Voyager was not nearly as shuttlecraft-esque.

I watch them all. DS9 is my favorite but my kids would say their favorite is Voyager. They grew up on Star Trek. I found that TNG, in particular, was a ripe source of analogies for my kids, mostly thanks to Data. His struggle to be human is much like childhood.
