Last night, BBC2 in England aired "The Star Trek Story", a documentry from the mid-1990's which did it's very best to paint Trek fans as complete freaks. Nichelle Nicols sang a lot. They recycled parts of Trekkies (the woman who went to jury duty in her TNG uniform, the guys dressing as Klingons). A girl read her K/S slash fanfic. If the film flops here (and I saw it with a grand total of 14 other people on opening day), blame them.
I watched it too. Couldn't believe that given everything good they could have covered about Trek they had to go the cliché 'look at the most dedicated fans' route. Didn't help that it was such old footage, it must be around 20 years old.
