Don't worry about it too much.

We are all human and it's natural to speak (or type) passionately about something you care about. Even what to other folk might just be a overgrown Sci-Fi show from the '60s.

We are all different, we all have different backgrounds, come from different countries, have different beliefs, hopes dreams etc...

But we all love the same TV show(s)/film phenomenon - Star Trek.

Yeah, we all come to it for different reasons. Some like the action, others its the Sci-Fi, or its characters and stories. Being different is not a crime, in fact its one of the things that Star Trek (including the new film) in all it's incarnations embraces.

I think the beauty of Star Trek in a lot of ways is that it appeals to so many different people.

And yeah, at times we don't always get along. Words get exchanged, a few phaser blasts and maybe the odd photo torpedo.

I can be a right sarcastic bugger at times I know. The day after I posted my "After seeing the movie..." thread I thought, "oh I could have worded that better, or I was a too harsh on that", you know, but it's out there now. I stand by it, but I also accept other peoples right to disagree and say so. (Even though I might chew 'em out again)

To me Star Trek works best when all its ingredients are working together, at times that doesn't work, someone put too much salt in, or not enough spice, or forgets the gravy and adds the prawns instead. It's a complex recipe and the chefs can't get it right all the time, but then again when the recipe isn't right for me, it is right for someone else.

And that is okay, it's okay for Star Trek, like us, to be different.

Perhaps, if it wasn't...then none of us would like it.

That the exploration that awaits you. Not mapping stars and studying nebula, but charting the unknown possibilities of existence. - Q
