Star Trek Fan Rules:

Figured this could be a fun and informative topic.

Let's list some Rules that Star Trek fans should follow (non binding of course)

Rule #1:
Never ask a Star Trek Actor how long it took them to put their makeup on. They don't like it because they get that all the time. Google it.

Rule #3:
Avoid a Star Wars vs. Star Trek Debate with a Star Wars Fan. You might as well get into a debate about Religion.... oh wait... they got a religion. Just smile and nod.

Re: Star Trek Fan Rules:

Rule #2009:
Always justify your dislike of a particular Trek by pointing out minor continuity nitpicks, while acting as though the Treks that you love are completely devoid of them.

Rule 34 coincidentally is the same as for the internet in general.

Rule 0514 somehow allows leading zeroes. It's a rule I pretend doesn't exist.

Rule #82.65 - Subsection 3 - Paragraph 7 - Line 2:
All Star Trek Fans must know how to either make a Vulcan "Live Long and Prosper" hand Gesture or be comfortable using a Ferengi Tooth Sharpener.



It is recommended to learn the hand gesture.

Rule #3, subsection A. If you do get in such a debate, casually mention to them that Starfleet's light weight navigational deflectors block laser beams ... this drives them insane.
