The whole family bonded over the documentary, Trekkies (1997), last night. My teenage kids thought it was a total blast. We all smiled and laughed at the people and their dedication to the show(s) and concepts. These people are very serious.
I donâ€™t know if Iâ€™m a Trekie (apparently thereâ€™s a difference, but itâ€™s not clear what the definition of each is), having seen every episode of the original several times and each of the â€œThe Next Generationâ€ episodes at least once over the years. Even so, though, I have no urge to dress like a Klingon and listen to William Shatner tell stories about what it was like to shoot a phaser in 1966. My kids are thankful for this.
Itâ€™s only 86 minutes long and itâ€™s a real hoot.
