I like you more already DNA-1842! Cool collectable you have there. Thanks again for letting me use the Vulcan smiley you made in my signature! (see Below)

I don't know why others are up in arms about people dressing up. I'm actually just going to get a "red shirt" t-shirt from Amazon fo $20 to wear with black jeans now.

No phaser, I'll be an engineer so I have less chance of getting killed in line by a fellow Trek fan who will think I'm adding something negative to others experience.

Being an engineer I'll carry a wrench to knock anyone over the head who calls me "Weirdo".

Gotta go - I'm seeing Punisher:War Zone today .... with my Skull shirt on!

You are welcome!

BUT: I think the best way of dealing with anyone calling you: ''a weirdo'', is EITHER: say: ''Why thank you!'' or look at them in a puzzled fashion and say: ''Yes? I am.'' As if being a weirdo is the most nat- Wait! It is the most natural thing in the world! (Sorry, almost slipped up there!)

You are confusing ''HYPERspanner'' and SONIC screwdriver.

Difference: the sonic does all, and the hyper does nought.

Hyper Spanner, Sonic Screwdriver .... Doesn't matter, I'm just bringing a LARGE, HEAVY TOOL for head cracking.

Aw Hell, I'll just bring a handgun! Not as heavy.

mmoore: would you also get embarrassed when hanging around a Green Bay Packer's fan with face paint and a cheese hat at a football game? Would you not go to a costume party if invited? Do you not like to go trick- or treating on Halloween?

If the answers to these questions are yes, then you either A. Don't like costumes, or B. are averse to rabid fandom of any kind. That as a stance, I can respect.

However if your simply embarrassed by Trekfans in costume, then I submit that you are embarrassed of your fandom and, if so, my question is why?

There are few more appropriate times to dress up in a starfleet uniform than at the premiere of a new Trek film. In this way one declares themselves an avid fan of star trek, just as someone else might declare themselves an avid fan of their local sports team by painting their face and or body.

I really don't see the difference between the two. If you enjoy a form of entertainment and you wish to promote that form of entertainment with what you wear, then given the proper occasion. Go ahead!

I plan on going in full 24th century trek grab if I can manage to put together an ensemble by May. If not i'll at least wear my communicator pin.

Why the hell should I hide my pride in something that I love. Especially when there is an obvious oportunity to express that pride?
