  1. Trekkies is hilarious, fascinating, and, at times, almost scary.
  2. 80
    This valentine to Trekkiedom (produced by, who else, Paramount) doesn't go in very deep--probably doesn't intend to--but it's also not quite the promotional piece the studio may have envisioned.
  3. 75
    Trekkies talk at length about how the world would be a saner and more peaceful place if the "Star Trek" philosophy ruled our lives. No doubt it would be a lot more entertaining, too, especially during root canals.

    Trekkies doesn't quite take us to the final frontier, however, it is the best documentary on the subject and a good laugh.

    A largely affectionate look at the weird and the wonderful subculture that's ensued and endured since the sci-fi series first beamed up in 1966.
  6. 60
    Most of the extreme Trek fans it features are obsessed in a big way, and if they were your children you'd probably be thinking therapy.
  7. A geek festival that mainly invites us to hoot at a bunch of alleged crazies.
