Review by Suzdal
3 stars out of 4

If you aren't one you at least know one. Die-hard fans of one of the Star Trek series. This documentary takes a closer look at the individuals, clubs, conventions and trek fandom in general. The result is hilarious, touching and fascinating.

This could have easily been either patronizing and mean-spirited or on the other side overly official (it's produced by Paramount) or touchy-feely. Instead it manages to take a non-judgemental look at the whole spectrum of trek fandom, without avoiding potentially embarassing interviews but also without turning them into a freak show of 'oh, look how weird'.

Good points are raised, the tone is good natured and the subject fascinating. Various cast members also discuss their relationship with fandom.

If you're a trekkie, trekker, fan or if you've ever wondered about them you'll find this interesting.
