TREKKIES

  • Description
  • An engaging documentary that

    not only entertains, but paints a

    portrait of the largest, most amazing

    fan phenomenon in pop culture

    history. For 30 years the crew of the

    U.S.S. Enterprise has entertained

    millions of fans around the world. But

    what clearly sets STAR TREK apart

    is the fan phenomenon it has created,

    a group of people who have come to

    be known as "Trekkies." Interviews

    with the original cast are intercut with

    the Trekkies, as Denise Crosby leads

    the viewer on a journey giving an

    overview of this multi-faceted

    phenomenon: the conventions, the

    costumes, the fan clubs, and of

    course, the fans. Often hilarious,

    sometimes touching, definitely

    fascinating!
