Trekkies 3

Has anyone heard any rumblings or rumors about a third installment of the "Trekkies" documentary series? It seems like a good time, with the new movie and the resurgence of interest in Trek.

I'm a big fan of the first two films. I just re-watched Trekkies 2 last night.

Do we really need another one of those?

Aren't we already made out as fools to 95% of the population!

Well if the home-made Starfleet uniform fits...

Re: Trekkies 3

I saw the first one and felt deeply insulted. Ok sure I spent the last week watching every all 7 season of DS9. 17 hours a day sitting and watching TV. But this isn't somethign I do all the time. It's my last week before college. I don't go around wearing a Starfleet uniform or a Klingon.

I think Denise is just pissed off that she got killed when TNG was still bad.

Re: Trekkies 3

Yeah, I didn't really appreciate the movie's perpetuating negative stereotypes about Star Trek fans either. I didn't find the movie very insightful or entertaining. It just made me feel sorry for all the terribly screwed up people in it, and even made me a little ashamed of being a Star Trek fan, just because it sort of associates me with those weirdos by default.

Denise Crosby is cool, though. I met her at a convention once. I was too shy to say anything but "it was nice to meet you", but I thought it was sweet how she said, "it was nice to me YOU!" very enthusiastically, as if I was famous or something. Nice lady.

Re: Trekkies 3

I like watching the two Trekkies movies -- the second one shows slightly more normal fans, the guy who made his apartment into a Voyager enclave notwithstanding. They're like...convention substitutes for me. (If you only experienced the extreme parts of conventions, I suppose.)

Re: Trekkies 3

The thing I hate most about people's reactions to my being a fan is thinking:
A: That I believe that it is all somehow real.
B: That because I like a sci-fi show that I also must belive in UFOs coming to Earth and that hey abduct people or whatever.

Re: Trekkies 3

As much as I like the "Trekkies" movies, I wish Rod Roddenberry could get the money to finish "Trek Nation" which is supposed to take a friendlier look at Trek fandom. Plus, I'm in it .

This is what I meant to say in my post, but it didn't come out as eloquently.
