It's not just Trekkies who are like this. I've seen it a lot with Whovians and other fan groups.

Reminds me of that Nathaniel Hawthorne story "The Birth-Mark," where a scientist married a beautiful woman but became obsessed with the one flaw in her appearance and ultimately killed her in an attempt to remove the birthmark from her face.

There's Star Trek stuff I don't like, and I'll say so if someone mentions it, but I mostly try to forget it.
His wacky short stories, along with Thoreau's writings are why I became an English major. Scarlet is all ZZZs, but man, those stories are pretty cool.
