The Series Project: Star Trek

Film article by: Witney Seibold

Enterprise A

I have admitted in these hallowed Internet pages that I am a hardcore Trekkie. So hardcore, in fact, that I say “Trekkie” and not “Trekker.” I feel “Trekkie” is reserved for the true, nerdy, diehard Trek fans, while “Trekker” is a revisionist term for nerds who are trying to deny their nerd-dom.

Good God, I’m uncool.

This article, like others, has been re-purposed for CraveOnline, and can soon be read, in three parts, over on that website. Thanks for following!

    Oh and Trekkie, Trekker, whatever! We still sing row row row your boat on camping trips and eat Dr. McCoy’s family recipe beans by the fire!

  4. I couldn’t agree more with your take on the Abram’s ST. I’ve only walked out on one movie in my life and I was really close to doing it during this one.

    So, there’s two of us anyway!!!

  5. […] unit. How does, of instance, a play lessen and upsurge opposite a whole immeasurable criterion of Star Trek movies? Or how do a events of a sixth Police Academy film describe to a events of a prior five? The […]
