Very few stories or sitcoms transpire and blossom into its own sub culture, taking on a life of its own like Star Trek has. Perhaps a combination of timing and social purpose, Star Trek influences reach young and old, male or female. Evidence such as Trek conventions continues to pump life into the Star Trek Saga, even cast members maintain a sense of extended fame due to long term popularity: amongst diehard fans. At times the consumption of Star Trek into some people's lives becomes eye opening. Star Trek is a day to day life style going well beyond a hobby of casual interest. For people like Gabriel Köerner, hey young man who lives and breathes Star Trek. Köerner is a very intelligent young man that while incredibly nerdy is a positive figure for the often and publicly scrutinized Trekkies. His overt passion an indulgence has rendered a creative talent that produces alternative Star Trek based stories and art that is thoughtful and skillful. The most interesting part of this film is how Star Trek lends itself to personal interpretation, and just how individuals connect to the characters, plots and concepts. It kind of reminds you of some religious types consumed with their faith, a complete saturation of thought and action. What is also interesting about this film is the social and psychological aspects of this type of obsession. For many, Trekkie acceptance is perhaps the only form of social acceptance that some of these people get. Being and nerd wasn't that cool 20, 10 or even 5 years ago, so some Trekkies use this outlet as an escape from real life and some simply don't come back. Trekkies is a fun movie with some uncomfortable moments that make my own inhibitions cringe a little bit, but it's only because many of us could only wish to be this care free with our own oddities in public. I am also glad that people like the Trekkies are out there not giving a shit about what society thinks, and taking pride in their interests and identity.
