I have never been able to understand the "geek" "nerd" "loser" "loner" names that some people give Star Trek fans. I am not either of those, I am a very outgoing person, I have friends and a wonderful wife and kids, who started watching Star Trek at an early age. (neither of which became Trekkies). My wife doesn't watch Trek but she doesn't hate it either, she will go to the movie and see it the first time. If I hear people dowing Star Trek, I would defend it also. I agree that most people who jump in line to bash it, have never actually given it a chance. In Nov 07 I hosted a New Beetle gtg at my house and on night I popped in Star Trek 6 and a guy who has turned out to be my best bud fell hard for Trek. He had never watched it before and he was like a dry sponge! Since that time, he has bought all of TOS, TNG, and is going with ENT next. He told me last night in chat that he just couldn't get enough Star Trek!!!!
LET'S MAKE SURE HISTORY NEVER FORGETS THE NAME ENTERPRISE!!!
