Hi, I'm currently researching for my final dissertation at university and the title of my piece is: "Cult Fandoms within the Science Fiction genre". I am looking mainly at Star Trek for my specific research. I was just wondering why you think Star Trek became such a phenomenon with so many dedictated fans, what do you think the reason for this is? And what is it about the science fiction genre that creates such a buzz around its characters and production? And have you ever been to a science fiction convention, if so, what was the experience like? If anyone wants to get in touch and reply that would be absolutely wonderful and a great help!!! Any answers welcomed.
