Trekkies is a movie made by some peripheral cast & crew of one incarnation or other of the (damn, already used phenomenon) juggernaut of modern Sci Fi. The documovie takes excerpts of convention footage and now venerable interviews with prinipal cast members from TOS & TNG (excluding only the two Captains) and groups them thematically to show some insight into the mind of the dedicated Fan. It is a mixed bag, showing some genuine compassion for their condition, but mostly it watches as a “worst of” moments. The most apt tagline was proviuded by another reviewer who (speaking to a geek audience) said it should be watched to make you feel better about your own life. C’est la vie. FWIW, I’d buy a second iteration movies uniform if I had the spare cash.
