Re: Nahh, the old Star Trek was for nerds...
"I console myself with the realization that these Trek films will come and go, but their eager audience will remain sub-human"
Whoah... I thought you might have had a legitimate point (#)- if one expressed in a slightly melodramatic and conspiratorial manner- until I read this.
You're describing people as "sub-human" because they might enjoy the slightly dumbed-down new Star Trek films? Seriously?
Ugh. I'm guessing your average idealistic Star Trek fan wouldn't want to be associated with that sort of viewpoint either. Shows that geeks can be just as bad as the people they like to think themselves above and not even realise it.
(#) Haven't seen any of the rebooted Star Trek series myself, so can't judge it.
