Hi Everyone, Thanks to Dr EMH for reminding me to register at this forum to share this with you all.
Thank you all, especially Dr EMH and the 2 other fans I met in Spore early this week, for the photos and congratulations on NCC-1701.
I'd be humbled and happy to meet all or any of the Klang Valley fans someday to share my experience in my journey of 1701; especially the fan that bid only a few thousand RM less than my bid... in retrospect, I would have loss to him/her if I hesitated with the amount I had submitted (which I definitely did many times you can be sure, especially since everything in our market/economy had gone up recently)
Anyway, just a short sharing here - I have always had this obsession with the number 1701 hence I all the cars that I had owned in my lifetime all had 1701 - all in my journey to the ultimate NCC-1701: WJH 1701 (Iswara) WHK 1701 (Nissan Sentra older model) WHX 1701 (Nissan Sentra new and Nissan X-trail) WPB 1701 (Kyron) MAY 1701 (wife's Kenari) NCC 1701 (Kyron)
Well, the feeling is 'different' when I drive the car around but I don't think it's because of the number (unless other drivers are ST fans serious enough to take note).
Despite the vehicle being a 'fairly large' turbo diesel SUV, KL and PJ people tend to want to bully non 'W' or 'B' plate vehicles; wanting to show that they are local and 'superior' to any 'out of state' car plates - what more from a small kampung state like Negeri Sembilan.
So it is indeed more stressful now for both my wife (MAY 1701) and myself (before this the plate was WPB 1701 - a Wilayah one that other drivers evidently steered clear away) now when we drive our cars !!!
Take care and see you all soon. Will announce my Youtube video on NCC-1701 and also when the national press interviews me on this.
After all, it is not common that one officially name one's son Riker Si James Tee Kirk and daughter Seven Si Janeway...
