Star Trek FTW!

Apparently it's cool to be a Trekkie, for, like, the first time ever.
I have a confession.
As a kid, my best friend loved Star Trek - meaning I had to love it too. Then, as I got older, my parents got into it. When I say "got into it", I mean we watched it every single night during supper for years. I have seen almost every episode of Star Trek Voyager, and a good deal of The Next Generation.
So, even though I'm not a bona-fide Trekkie, I still know a great deal more about the franchise than the average person.
That being said, my little sister is even more of a Trekkie than I ever will be... for a while she even walked around with The Next Generation buttons on her purse. True story. So, with me being home, on Monday, my littlest sister and I had a date to go see Star Trek.

I was excited to go see it. I'd heard really good things about it, and I know J.J. Abrams is pretty amazing. Also, I have a giant crush on Zachary Quinto, partially from Heroes, but mostly due to the fact that he is completely adorable in every single interview I have seen him in.

Um, spoiler alert: it was awesome!

Seriously, go see this right away. If you grew up with Star Trek, go see it. If you've never watched an episode of any Star Treks before this, go see it. If you need to wear your Klingon costume, go see it.
Was there a downside? No, I don't think there was.
The actors were amazing, the special effects were also amazing.
Not to mention how freaking cute Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto are. They should be reason alone to go see it.
Can I go see it again now, please?

Aww, I'm glad you enjoyed it! I thought it was great. I am pretty much a lifelong Trekkie (mainly old school films and Next Generation, but some Voyager too), and I thought they did an excellent job with it. Kirk is cute too. :)

My name is Trina, and I'm a virgin-trekkie. I adored this movie and immediately wanted to buy another ticket to see it again. (but was quickly put in place by the $9 ticket prices)

It's very IN to be a trekkie these days. That doesn't mean those crazy ones will be getting laid any time soon, but at least they have this moment in the sun right now. :)

My sister made me watch the original Star Trek at three o'clock in the morning every night over a summer vacation when I was about seven or eight. I developed a pretty nasty sleepwalking habit from it. Curse you, Kirk!
