Ronan at Star Trek Eire fumes:
Ah now Ryan! I’ve met you at a Star Wars convention so you obviously have time for a bit of sci-fi. Your remark probably won’t go down well with Star Trek fans. It does imply that we’re all lonesome lads on social media.
Have you interviewed Patrick Stewart Ryan? Please tell him your opinions about Star Trek fans. He once objected when an interviewer described Trekkies as “weird”, calling it a “silly thing to say”. Stewart added, “How many do you know personally? You couldn’t be more wrong.”
Isaac Asimov described us: “Trekkies are intelligent, interested, involved people with whom it is a pleasure to be, in any numbers. Why else would they have been involved in Star Trek, an intelligent, interested, and involved show?”
Maybe in some crazy way you’re just angling for a role in the new Star Trek series out in 2017? ;)
