Admiral_Kirk's Star Tr...
Obviously, I like chess. I also play Stratego, Othello, and many other games. For the most part, I hate sports, though I do follow the Bengals American football team. As you can tell from the groups I used to participate in, I am a huge Star Trek fan. I have the inflatable captain's chair, Kirk uniform, Star Trek wall panel, and all seasons of TOS, TNG, and DS9. My favorite series is Deep Space Nine, and my favorite episode is Waltz. Of the Star Trek movies, my favorite is Star Trek: Generations. I can't stand Voyager, and haven't the time to watch Enterprise.
