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

While you get very few if any comments from watching Star Trek on TV (during the 90's, BBC2's 6pm Wed showing of TNG was the channel's highest watched programme every week), the comments start if you say you go to conventions and or like to dress up.

On a semi serious note, while I realise we're not all the same in terms of mentally firing on all thrusters, some of the people I've seen at UK Trek cons have needed sectioning under the mental health act. It's these type of Trek fans, plus the ones that dress up as Klingons, Borg et al, that give the more normal fans a bad rap.

At Creation events in the past, I've been left wondering just how many of the people there realise that Star Trek isn't actually real.
