I expected this thing to be good. It was even better than I had hoped. I love this documentary. It's really good. No Bonus material but the movie itself is worth the credit.

Where no fan has gone before...
Amaranth | Northern California | 06/07/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Trekkies" is a fun,affectionate documentary about dedicated Trekkies. Denise Crosby (related to Bing,who starred as Tasha Yar) narrates. It's a whimsical travelogue in the world of Star Trek fandom. These Trekkies not only collect the movies- they want to live as members of the Federation of Planets on Earth.

There's the Whitewater juror who came every day to the trial in her Star Trek uniform. There are people who study Klingon. There's a dentist whose office looks straight off the Enterprise. Denise Crosby and Brent Spiner (Data) are surprised-and a little flattered- when they discover erotic depictions of their characters. (We also learn that Spiner is a Texan,complete with Southern drawl) Slash fiction gets an interesting sidenote. A middle-aged woman,with her face shaded as if she were in the Witness Protection Program,talks about writing erotic stories about the escapades of Kirk and Spock. Times have changed. One wonders if,thanks to Frodo&Sam,Capt. Jack Sparrow&Will Turner,as well as Angel&Spike,this woman would've been "out and proud."

"Trekkies" is an enjoyable excursion into the Star Trek subculture. Pop in the dilithium crystals, hit warp speed, sit back and enjoy!"
Informative and entertaining

"This movie is a must for trek fans (from those with little interest to full out trekkers). The DVD includes scenes from trek conventions, interviews with cast from all the series, and interviews with fans. You learn alot about the kind of people that are interested in star trek as well as the views and opinions of the cast members. I highly recommend this movie for star trek fans young and old."
Funny stuff

"I like the original Trek series for the camp value, and the occasionally great scripts in the early shows. The new series never did much for me.
That said, I found this hilarious and weirdly touching. Sad that so many millions base their lives around loving an old tv show, but hey, it beats being a puppet of organized religion or the military and hating and killing people you don't know, so wtf.
Some hilarious moments here. Get it for any trekkies you know."
