Default Nmts

Since Friday I’ve been reading comments on multiple websites, sites such as Entertainment Weekly, Coming Soon, and Trek Movie to name a few. So what you say, so have I. But you may have missed, through unedited ramblings, the pattern that I discovered, which I now believe to be a syndrome of galactic proportions. In fact, I fear some may loose much to this disorder that I have now come to call: Neural Mutation Trek Syndrome five-two-point-one or NMTS. And did I mention it’s rampant in Paris?

I know what you’re asking yourself, what are the symptoms? Who is susceptible? Does it cause a rash and if so, is the antiseptic cream expensive because I don’t have insurance? Well, fortunately it does not cause the aforementioned problem.

Whew!
I know.

Well what does—Neural Mutation Trek Syndrome five-two-point-one or NMTS—do? How is it transmitted? First of all, it is transmitted through visual stimuli of JJ Abrams new Star Trek photos, trailers or related media and there are two types of sufferers.

The Non-Trekkie Sufferer

Their symptoms include: giddiness and childlike wonder and some have even had fits of w00ting. And if that isn’t bad enough, others have even implied seeing the film. This, in my opinion, is tantamount to a psychotic episode.

The Trekkie Sufferer

Their symptoms can include: fits of writing on message boards the non-word, 'Sh!t", or in combination with other words to form the more complex, "JJ Abrams sh!t on canon". But even more importantly, some have even implied they would not see the film after viewing the trailer. This too, in my opinion, is tantamount to a psychotic episode.

While there is no cure for Neural Mutation Trek Syndrome five-two-point-one or NMTS, there is always the hope that one day both suffers of the condition can find relief after Star Trek hits the theatres.

And for us non-sufferers—man… isn’t that trailer cool?

So if I am a trekkie and am having "giddiness and childlike wonder" along with some occassional "w00ting", then this means I do not have NMTS?

No. You do have it. But it means that you are not actually a Trekkie. Go re-read all the posts from our resident "purists" and you will see that if this trailer did not pi$$ you off you are not a true fan.
It's science.

I haven't seen anyone say that. I have called a few people "not true fans" because they wish for this new movie to fail.

That would be the other stance, the one to which I subscribe.
Any "true fan" should support this film and hope it revives Trek.
On the other hand, there's a good chance I was just trying to be funny to go along with the light-hearted nature of this thread.

I never "get" sarcasm or jokes!! I read the post, and take it as I see it. Sorry about that. I look for smileys or other emoticons to give it away. I usually put (sarcasm intended) when I make those types of comments. Again, sorry for the confusion. I was about to jump all over you!
