Re: Star Trek London - All 5 captains to be there!

Considering that Trek is rarely off TV in the UK, I've always felt that there is a genuine affection for Trek over here. It pops up as a regular pop culture reference in the media and Bill Shatner's appearance on one of the BBC's main comedy programmes last week was very warmly received. While everyone knows the perception of Trekkies, the UK has a long record of affection for geeks/nerds/eccentrics, and if they see Trek fans as such, I don't think it's in a derisive sense! Certainly not the 'leprosy' tag AB gives us.
