No no. A real fan would skip jury duty entirely. And then when thrown in the slammer a real fan would give an in depth movie review to all the drunks and hookers.

...when you don't even pay attention to the movie because you're searching the edges and corners of the screen for Easter Eggs.

If you sit through the movie three times in an afternoon, ducking into the men's room between screenings so the ushers won't catch you... and you're 45....

If it's two weeks into the release, and you're STILL showing up in your uniform...

If you are standing in line to go into the theatre, and you notice someone wearing a red shirt in line... and you point your finger at them, making a phaser whistle... and they get it and laugh along with you...

If you find yourself mildly envious of the 5 year old who's in line with his parents, who just said he's never heard of Trek... and you KNOW what's about to happen to the kid's life from here on out...

If you've been searching online for starship salt and pepper shakers, like they had in the bar...

If you are calling around, trying to find a T-shirt with Dr. McCoy's, "Space is death and deisease wrapped in darkness and silence..." on it...

If you've spent the last week and a half in orbit, fixing the Hubble, and the guys on the ground are thoughtful enough to beam a pirated copy to you....

If, the first thing you do, after getting out of the movie, is to hit a Target, or a Toys R' Us, in search of new action figures, and/or starships...

..
Loved this I was rolling when i read it
here are a few more

If you brave the food at Burger King just to get the glasses.

if you pay the theater owner 2000 dollars for a private viewing just so you can stop the film to find all the Easter eggs

If you look at your gia pet and think of the annoying side kick of Scotty

If you can’t watch Heroes anymore because you can’t think of Spock being so evil

If you brought a colostomy bag , a pillow and blanket to the theater so you could just stay there for days.

If the theatre manager gives up, and just decides "well they're gonna be here anyway" and accepts your offer to pay him to let you run the projectors...
