Probably every geek out there has already read Harry Knowles’ ravings about the new Star Trek movie, where a crowd of Trek fans gathered to watch Wrath of Khan and wound up getting a visit by Leonard Nimoy and a full screening of Star Trek. In my excitement about going to see it next week, I looked up Harry’s commentary and savored every over-the-top geekgasmic sentence. And to top it all off, they’ve got Sylar and Shaun in this one! There’s no one I can imagine as being a better Spock and Scotty besides Nimoy and Doohan.
In the battle between Trek and Star Wars fans, I’m definitely on the Trekkie side. And in the futher subdivision of the Trek faith, I’m an Original Series guy. Next Gen was pretty good, but I never got into Deep Space 9, absolutely hated Voyager, and didn’t give Enterprise much of a chance after that. Nope, for me it’s the classic Kirk-Spock-McCoy love triangle.
