Re: Why Do Trekkies Love To Nitpick?

Probably doesn't help that the plot holes and inconsistancies in Star Trek are more glaring than any other fiction.
I highly doubt that.

The fact is that other fiction has plenty of holes and inconsistancies, its just that when you don't care about something, you won't notice.

The only reason we notice all the holes and inconsistancies in Trek is because we nitpick - and we do that because we love Star Trek, and when we watch it (especially if its for the 5th time) we pay such close attention that of course we're going to notice little (or big) hiccups.

There, how's that for a roundabout way of answering the OP?
