Hi Everyone

My User Name - Vectrex70

Comes from the Vectrex system and represents my interests for all vectorscan systems that was used in StarWars, Battlestar Galactica, to all the vector scan video arcades that was made in the 1970's to the early 80's.

My Avatar is based on the built in Vectrex game, Minestorm. The snapshot was made from the mess emulator.

My signature was from a Quote from Dr. Seuss. I forgot how I stumbled on it, but I can tell you that I liked it to have my signature.

I did not had time to finish my public profile but I will finish it as soon as I can!

My User name comes from the fact thaat I am a Navy Hospital Corpsman, so the common nickname is "Doc". 834 was my badge number, when I was a volunteer firefighter.

My sig is a saying that I saw back in High School. It's one of the only sayings that I actually remember.

I couldn't find any avatars that fit my personality, so I just used this one.

When I was in college I played a lot of BattleTech ( an '80s strategy and tactics board game), and the 'Mech called the Warhammer was my favorite. Once a Warhammer driver always a Warhammer driver, I guess.

My avatar is a screenshot of a Warhammer from one of the PC games based on BattleTech called MechWarrior.

My Callsign

1) What yours means? It's a name of the lead character from a book
2) Where it comes from (source)? "The Rowan" by Anne McCaffrey
3) What it means to you? Well I identified somewhat with the character the blurb on the inside jacket says "She was the most important talent on her planet (talent meaning psychic abilities) but it was a lonely life especially for a woman who had been deprived of her childhood. The men she loved were beneath her, and she loved no one - until Jeff entered her life"
4) Why you picked it? Well I wanted an easy handle for people to write some handles are hard to spell or type fast, or remember, I wanted something connected to Sci Fi and I wanted something that was relatively uncommon, and I have always liked the name.

My Avatar
Is a picture of Dark Angel (Jessica Alba) she and I are very similar in size and shape, she's a little taller and I'm a little curvier The character of the Dark Angle is similar to mine in many respects, capable of being feminine but also tough, yet vulnerable, a fighter/ survivor, helping others, soft place in her heart for those society rejects, loves motorcycles, you can count on her. I chose this particular image of her because she has that confident, cocky, tough girl pose going on plus I love the leather outfit...oh if only I had money...

My sig
initially was from the song The Rainbow Connection by Kermit the Frog ( I have a very special place in my heart for Kermit)

"Who said that every wish would be heard and answered
When wished on the morning star?
Somebody thought of that, and someone believed it,
And look what it's done so far.
What's so amazing that keeps us stargazing
And what do we think we might see?
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
The lovers, the dreamers, and me."

I chose this because I am a dreamer and made many a wish on a star and I'm hoping that someday I'll find what I 'm wishing for. I also felt it applied to all of us who have been making the same wish for 26 years.

Right now my sig is a poem I like especially in our current times.
Ok that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Profile
I did have a whole bunch of personal stuff in my profile but then got acquainted with the darker side of BBoards and decided to erase it all...

My name/callsign? Well, it comes from 2 sources. First, Aeneas was the hero/title character of Virgil's The Aenid, an epic poem on the scale of Homer's The Illiad and The Odyssey . As a matter of fact, it takes place in the same time frame as both. Aeneas is a prince of Troy, one of their greatest warriors(second only to Hector) and as such is the only one of the Trojan nobility to survive the sack of Troy. He and his followers then undertake a long and arduous journey(oft. parell to Odysseus) ultimately founding a settlement on the shore of the Tiber river in Italy...Rome. (I especially like the irony that the Trojans...or their Roman descendants ultimately conquer the same swaggering Greeks that destroyed Troy, makes you think that maybe the Colonials have a chance in ultimately bestin the Cylons, dontcha think ?)

As to source two, being that so many characters in the TOS universe take their names from ancient mythology, I figured "wouldn't it be nice to have a character named Aeneas"? Actually, he's the hero of a series of fanfics(that I ultimately plan to start...someday) titled "Battlestar Prometheus" which takes place approx. the same time as TOS.

Briefly, Aeneas is a Warrior and a Viper pilot. He is the son of a member of the TOS Galactica's crew *spoiler*(a prominent one @ that) and the Strike Commander of the Prometheus' squadrons(hence the sig...it's what might've happened if it had been the Prometheus that either the Galctica or Pegasus had met up with in "LL" ! ) His backstory as well as that of the rest of the characters and the Prometheus itself is really interesting--the result of various sketches,shorts, and the occasional foray on fan info sites--the Prometheus was declared missing by the onset of TOS. (O.k., now I've got to start in the suspense will kill folks!)

Default my internet name

My Internet name, which I use for everything I participate in, is skippercollector. Usually girls immediately know what it means, but it puzzles guys. Skipper is one of Barbie's younger sisters, and Skipper's been my favorite doll since second grade. I'm talking about 1968, when I got a blonde Twist N Turn Skipper for Christmas. Although I own lots of Barbies and Kens, my collection mainly focuses on Skipper and her friends. Unfortunately, in some of these discussion groups, the name has too many characters, which is why you'll sometimes see me listed as skippercollecto (no R on the end).
My Battlestar Galactica fan fiction name is Tatiana, which I came up with in the early 80s when I joined some fan clubs. I have always liked Russian history, which is where I borrowed the name from.
And as for my given name, it is Mary Ann Elizabeth Wernke.

My username BRG stands for British Racing Green . I'm a Formula 1 fan, so I wanted a name that was linked to the sport and also sounded quite cool. Up until the late 60's, all British teams painted they're cars this colour. Since then they have been painted like a 200mph pack of cigarettes!

Pic of Jim Clark in the beautiful green & yellow Lotus Ford of 1967.

My avatar, well it's Superman of corse! My favorite comic book hero from when I was a lad. I also think it is a cool picture by Alex Ross.

And my signiture. It is that great line from Back to the Future, when Marty first meets the 1955 Doc Brown! A brilliant line by Michael J. Fox from one of the best films of the 80's.

BRG -

I miss the days when Formula 1 cars looked like that.....

I love the pic - and that color. The last car I had was a 2001 Miata Special Edition. It too was British Racing Green!



I'm a tad more sensible now, and I have an SUV, but it's still green...

"Green is my signature color...."

Best,
Bryan

I am not really "new" but I see I haven't posted yet. My callsign Julix is a name I made up when trying to make a character from a computer game a couple of years ago......I always liked the name Julie and used to pretend it was my name as a little girl. My daughter is named Julianna. So I came up with Julix...which I say Juli X.
And as for my Avi....I am a big time TOS fan and always admired Sheba because she was smart, strong and independent and yet still pretty and feminine. Which are goals I try to strive for. anyway....I don't have a signature pharse yet............hmmmm

Thanks Julix!!! I think Sheba was my favorite gal from BSG too (although it's hard to choose -- they were all great!!)

Oh, BRG and Gemini, my sister-in-law bought an MG long, long ago and brought it over to my place. I begged her to drive it, and she let me take it for a spin. Most fun driving a car I've ever had.

And guys... it was GREEN

Battlestar Galactica 2004

EXCALIBUR

I didn't discover the internet until just 5 years ago. Once I started finding forums, I would go to choose a name, and everything I could come up with, was already taken.

I looked at the sword I have hanging on my wall, and decided to try Excalibur. In some places it is already taken by someone else, but I use it where I can.

Now, as for the avatar. I saw the original series when I was a kid, but it's been so long I barely remember anything other then the Cylons. They were cool looking! Having discovered the mini-series on DVD a little over a week ago, I was hooked on the new BSG imediately. I understand those who might not, but for me it's great.

I remember when I heard they were going to be making a new Star Trek series, back in the 80's. I was really upset. Not knowing Gene was involved, I thought the studio was just going to wipe their feet all over the original, in an attempt to make money off of something good, while making something bad. Then I watched the first episode of TNG, and haven't missed an episode of Star Trek since.

I saw the avatar for Apollo on another forum, and decided to use it. I mean, what guy doesn't want to grow up to be a hot shot fighter pilot?

Cool Excalibur!! I have the same problem with the name Rowan aparently it's more popular than I realized, I can't always use it on other forums either.

You have a sword on your wall? I have a "thing" for swords (and to those who know me too well this is not a sexual inuendo I know I know it's hard to believe I'm not going there this time but I'm not!! )

I have a passion for swords, Zoro was my favourite "super hero" when I was a young lass and it's a big reason why I loved Highlander. So tell me about the sword you have what kind is it why do you have it etc.

Battlestar Galactica 2004

My dad thought I was crazy, I think, when I got a sword. I was 18 or so I think. Then, on our senior class trip to Florida, we went to the Medevil Times dinner theater, and I bought another sword. One of my classmates went off on me. She was literally screaming at me for spending my money on a sword. Oh well!

Last year I ordered Anduril for myself for Christmas. I waited, and waited, and waited, and I finally got word that it had been sent. But, what arrived was the Witchking sword, so I sent it back. By June I was so mad, I cancelled the order. Maybe one day, I'll get around to getting it.

Well, since I originally did this I have changed my avatar. This is one of my favorite scenes in one of my favorite movies with my favorite actor. (the one movie I can recite the dialogue from beginning to end...just sad, that.)

I love everything Alan Rickman does, this pic is from a scene in Galaxy Quest, just before his character starts 'usual' rant about how low he has sunk in his work. And I just like the makeup-brush up his nose pic.

"How did I come to this? I played Richard the Third. There were five curtian calls. I was an actor once, damnit, now look at me! Look at me! I cannot go out there and say that stupid line one more time. I can't, I won't!."
