Default You know you're a fan of ST XI when...

If you have gone to the film more than four times in the first week... (you may be a fan of Trek XI)

If you have gone back specifically to find R2D2...

If you went back specifically to catch Capt. Robeau's name on the medical scan readout...

If you've given the tribble on Scotty's desk a nickname... (Bruce)...

If you are planning a tour of a Budwiser brewery, just so you can check out "engineering"....

If you're thinking of detouring through Iowa, on your way to your next con, just to check out the construction site for the E...

If you have been almost ejected from the theatre for running up to the screen during the scenes with the Enterprise, while carrying a tape measure, muttering "Gonna settle this once and for all!"...

If your GF is stocking up on green body paint, even though she vowed "never to go through THAT again"...

Personally - I just keeping playing the soundtrack in my head!!

My boss at work is called Bruce - never thought of naming a tribble after him though. I did specifically go back to catch 1701 on the nacelle of the Enterprise in Iowa though.

If you've argued with the screenwriters about the physics of time travel....

If you're a female fan and you took note of what type of panties Uhura was wearing, just so you can get the costume right...

If you have argued with your co-workers for a good half hour over the movie's details, and/or shared your favorite scenes....

If you suddenly find yourself talking with a "cool kid" (who before this used to torment you and or beat you up because you were a "geek") about his newfound love of Trek...

If you try to explain the frustrated bank employee that you need a credit to finance your seventeenth cinema visit because the universe is in danger.

If you sketch the background ships of the movie to write your own tech manual.

If you wonder whether Uhura will wait for seven years or whether Gails was cast out of the syndicate because she lacks certain skills.

When you pull out old holiday photos to compare the San Francisco in the movie to the real one

When you spend hours on this infernal website, arguing about whether Engineering on a starship really would look like a Budweiser brewery.
