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.
