This was MY first science fiction television show. Yes, I had seen the Original Star Trek in reruns and had vague memories of the original Battlestar Galactica series. I did watch some of Star Trek: The Next Generation when it aired, but I lost track of it when I went to college and always considered it part of the original show.
Quantum Leap was all mine! I had no one to watch it with nor share it with but it lit the fire for the fantastic for me that continues to this day.
