Red face D'oh! Are You Ready for a Third Installment of...

The Trekkies franchise?

You know, the one with Denise Crosby about fans of Trek?

Crosby hopes to make a third one focusing on the current Star Trek movie.

D'oh! Just when you thought it was safe to say you were a Trekkie....

what's to fear?
Crosby's 11-year-old son and his friends think STAR TREK is cool!

suggestion from article comments:
"Interview a bunch of the new film's most hardcore haters, and let them rant on about how the new film has killed Star Trek and whatever all else they've been on about since well before the film was released, all the while contrasting that with facts and figures about the film's success, critically, financially, and so forth.

Then, show it alongside a theatrical re-release of the new film so the audience can laugh even harder at these guys' biatching in all their "Comic Book Guy" glory."

i'd watch that

If they do it right, then I'd watch it, too.

As long as one milks the sacred cow with respect, who's it gonna hurt?

I'll be honest, I love Trek and have ever since I was 5- but those people in the "Trekkies" movies scared me. Like the husband and wife who run the ST dental practice and make their receptionists wear Trek uniforms? Or the woman who wants to be addressed as "Commander" at her job at Kinkos or some office place, because she's a commander in Starfleet? I have no problem with people doing stuff like learning Klingon, because that's one's own business- but making your co-workers address you by your imaginary rank in an imaginary military force is a bit beyond my ken.

I felt sorry for the guys in Trekkies, I was uncomfortable just watching it. I thought about going to a trek convention once, but after seeing that movie, NO FREAKIN' WAY.

I've never seen that one but its gotta be made up in part. I cant imagine Kinkos would allow things like that since it hurts the companies image as well as employee relations. They certainly wouldnt allow it in relations to customers. In relation to employees it could be considered a form of harassment if co-workers refused to do it and are constantly corrected. The boss would tell him/her to stop. Certainly district level officials would. HR complaints and even lawsuits have been filed for less. Why not an employee who keeps telling fellow employees to call him "grand wizard'? Humiliation takes many forms. I sorta remember a case sorta like that where a receptionist had some kind of offensive title on her nameplate. The company forced her to remove it. She sued... and lost.

It would be another one that could be a potential turn off for possible clients (thus business) who would call the office less than professional. I would. Image counts. It would be no different than another office making a receptionist at a childrens practice to wear a clown outfit. Employers could be charged with humiliating an employee. Making it a job requirement to get hired could be considered illegal if it has no bearing or obvious requirement on the job. If there are no rules about such things why not force a Jewish person to wear a cross? Religion based or not, such things would be considered a huge no-no.

OK big long rant. But in the end... yes there are always exceptions that get away with it and odd things do happen here and there.

Trekkies 2 showed less intense fans who enjoyed Star Trek in more subtle ways, the first film certainly didn't help how the show and its fans are portrayed but it reflected a tiny proportion of the fans.

I reckon a third film would show how star trek is becoming more mainstream and acceptable, I hope it would have more cast interviews though, their missing in the 2nd film making it less fun to watch
