Re: Trekkies 3

I agree with Biggshow! I would much prefer Trek Nation to a third Trekkies. To me, Rod seems to genuinely care for the show/legacy, while Denise seems to use it as a money making too, since she ditched the show early and now regrets itl.

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.)
I have both of the other Trekkies. Back in the mid 1990's there were plenty of Star Trek conventions to go to, and today there are none in my area. When I watch Trekkies it almost makes me feel like the convention is in my home.

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 .
Cool! Would that be from STTE?

Do we really need another one of those?
No we don't and hopefully it will never be made.

Actually, with the new movie and the resurgence of interest in Trek, it would be almost a crime to do it.

I will only consent to a Trekkies 3 if it involves DeForrest Kelley coming back from the dead and punching George Lucas in the balls.

They should make a doc about the sticks-in-the-mud who got all hissy about the new movie. Hi-larious.

I'm sure you're joking. Dead or alive, Kelley would never act that way.

I would, but he wouldn't.

The real DeForrest Kelley was, to my understanding, one of the kindest, most dedicated, funniest, most intelligent individuals in any walk of life.

Zombie De will be very much the same, but he also won't be in the mood for George Lucas' bullshit.

De Kelley was far too much of a gentleman to do that!

I'm disappointed that Trek Nation never saw the light of day. The trailer for that looked really good, and I found it moving. I've never seen Trekkies, but from what I've read, it seems maybe to concentrate on what could be considered the negtive sides of fandom. Trek Nation seemed more of a celebration of fandom.

Yup. in fact, the first version of the trailer ended with Motog and me discussing Kralk's last...er...experience with a human female.
