Trekkers, Over Here!

I would consider myself an x-trekker... I think my interest died after DS9 was over.

Anyhow... this thread is dedicated to the scifi geeks, aka Trekkers, or its nerdier moniker Trekkies...

I'll start... with the topics of Star Trek movies...

Best movie : ST:VI -- Best Star Trek conception that is in accordance to the ST universe, AND pretty good s/fx.

Worst movie : ST: Nemesis ... don't get me started... I can point countless of story flaws in this movie...

For example,
1.) Wesley Crusher (though I hear Wil Wheaton wanted in on the movie) is supposed to be with the TRAVELER!!! Yeah, you trekkeries know what I'm talking about... No Vulcan-logic could let him back in the storyline.

2.) Enterprise-E doesn't have photon torpedoes (as when Capt. Picard ordered in the battle scenes... ) The ship has QUANTUM torpedoes, wherein First Contact movie has mentioned.

Anyone else want to add...?

Nemesis hasn't reached my shores yet; so I am staying far far away from this thread...

i watched deep space nine when i was in 3rd and 4th grade. i got bored with it, and didn't like the original series that was in re-runs on the sci-fi channel, or the next generation. haven't watched anything star trek related since 5th grade or so. don't miss it either.

oh wait, i did rent an episode of deep space nine about a year ago...it was a two-parter where the station's head doctor (who's name escapes me now, even though he used to be my favourite character) and the commander got stuck on earth in the middle of a really hellish mess...i didn't see the end of it when it aired on tv cos i had stopped watching it regularly at that point. i used to get annoyed when my mom would say it was really predictable, but being just a little older now, the show looked terribly predictable and insanly boring. i have no idea why i liked it when i was little.

Nemesis was disappointing
My personal favorite was First Contact...
A few of my friends and I definately sat in the dining hall talking about Star Trek for like 2 hours the other day...
though soulfulmofo, I think you qualify as a bigger trekkie than I

ooooh I can tell the story of my Dad and Jonathan Frakes here!
See, my dad had an R and B band, and they were having a convention in South Bend. So Jonathan Frakes was there and he wants to go to a bar and hear some good music, and he ends up in the bar my dad's band was playing?
We have extremely drunken pictures.
He also spelled my name wrong in the autograph

I stopped watching after Voyager. Enterprise didn't interest me. It was going to be the same thing all over again. I think they need to give Star Trek a break.

I think the Wrath of Khan was the best movie. They actually had starship battles!

Haven't seen Nemesis yet. Not to good eh?

Yeah, I haven't been too interested in Enterprise either. I started watching it, but then I stopped watching it mainly cuz I worked evenings, but I didn't even make an effort to keep up with it cuz it kinda bored me.

Next Gen. and DS9 are my favorite treks.

Did he offer to join in and play the trombone?

I'm not a Star Trek fan at all but my friend is a huge fan, especially of Enterprise. We can't ever go out on Wednesday nites cuz Enterprise is on and then she goes on a chat room with other friends. Even if it's a rerun.

For a summer road trip, I suggested we go to see the U2 stuff at the R & R hall of fame. She found out that towards the end of the summer there is going to be a Star Trek convention in Cleveland and some of the cast of Enterprise will also be there. We're going to go to Cleveland for both. I don't know how I feel about it. The tickets were a lot of money and I told her I would only pay for half and she had to pay for the other half. I felt I couldn't say no because she was going to come with me to the hall of fame before she even knew about the convention.

Has anyone ever been to a Star Trek convention? What should I expect? I know a little bit about the shows but not a whole lot. It's not something that's ever interested me.

I like Jonathan Frakes' other show, Beyond Belief. It's a guilty pleasure of mine.

Not a Trekkie. I was an ex-Jedi though...scary days.

Ex-Jedi? Whadya do, go to the dark side, yertle?

I'm not huge into ST, but Voyager is the one I've liked the most. I borderline can't stand the original series.

I enjoyed all the series...voyager the least...DS9 the most. I can't really get into Enterprise, but from what I've seen it's pretty good. I really liked the last episode. It was sort of an omage to "The Undiscovered Country", so it was cool in my books.

Fav Movie: Tie between Star Trek: VI, and Star Trek: II

The next gen movies are alright, haven't seen Nemesis yet.

SoulMofo, I think you're looking too much into the movie for a way out of being a trekkie.
