Is a bit annoying in some respects, shame the film didn't come out a decade earlier! When I was at school I was originally very vocal about liking Star Trek, it got me a bit of a reputation as a nerd and so through the later years of high school, college and uni I really toned it down and kept it quiet for fear people would label me a nerd. These days I'm a lot more comfortable with myself and anyone who decides to try and pick fun at me liking Star Trek I just don't associate with them, luckily they are few and far between and generally maturity comes with age.
