Trekkies on The Onion

To celebrate the release of Star Trek, I offer you a funny video on the Onion New Network—“Trekkies Bash New Star Trek Film as ‘Fun,’ ‘Watchable’” :

I love the fans.

I have never been a Trekkie myself, though my friend and nerd mentor Andrew has helped to initiate me a wee bit into the cultural awareness of the cult. I just find the technocratic, secular, Cartesian, Leftist worldview pretty revolting. However, like most sci. fi. (or space fantasy, for you purists), it has its charms. I especially love the fictional anthropology of fantasy and sci. fi., and Star Trek gives us some admirable races like the rational Vulcans and the thumotic Klingons.
