Star Trek Passion

Robert O' Reilly became Chancellor Gowron in Star Trek TNG and later starred in Deep Space Nine. This crafty Klingon survived and ruled the Home world by relying on his gut instincts. Still aliens have opposed the Klingon, with only one ever really defeating him. Fear is the most foreboding of emotions. Klingons are the bravest sci fi warriors, but Earthies on the other hand react to Fear.

I must confess to being a weakling human but I'd much rather be a fearless Klingon with a great knowledge of Klingon swear words and spikey teeth. I also want a phaser set on permanent stun to use responsibly in defending the galaxy against alien bad guys. But (sigh) I'm just an earthie and I've got to wise up to the fact that I'm fated to be a mortal humanoid form for the rest of my days! Oh God, please tell me this isn't true!!! I want superpowers!! Well, why not me???

But it's true, When we sense our trek heros in danger, we trekkers anticipate their pain and share in their experience. The sense of helplessness is terrifying for fans who are powerless to help except watch. But we love it too!!! Its the mystique appeal of 24th century space travel and meeting other lifeforms that keeps me on the edge of my seat. Adrenalin hits the bloodstream and sends us into a euphoric state, momentarily stunning our cognitive thought processes. I call this the "Star Trek Rush." There are many emotional states associated with wide eyed sci fi addicts.

So Be logical, follow the clues and don't swear! Don't let human emotionalism get the better of you, it interferes with your cosmic thinking. Quoting episodes occasionally is perfectly natural, no-one will blame you for your geekiness. Always root for the good guy and shout when danger looms near. Watch for these signs, its easy to get hooked on sci fi! The classic Trek guy never misses an episode or convention, better again he or she watches and records star trek daily. Then theres the urgent desire to own all star trek episodes. Its the next logical step. (You can spend your whole life just watching trek and that doesn't count star wars, battlestar galactica, firefly or stargate etc)

Wide staring eyes, tingling sensation all over the body, hairs standing up on the neck, sweating hands and racing heartbeats are all indications that the nervous system has gone into sudden hyper drive. The nervous system senses the danger, be it physical or nonphysical, it doesn't matter the human body will stuff lots of adrenaline into the poor earthie's bloodstream thus heightening his/her reactiveness in response to the perceived danger. Dam where's Dr Leonard H. Mc Coy when you need a cordrazine stimulant? I'm going to need a shot soon.

Its fun thinking how glued to the box fans can become when our sci fi heroes are on tv. What's really happening is our calm, focused thoughts of logic gradually become a turmoil of emotionally affected reasonings with occasional soft-heartiness. You know what? I'm proud to be a trekkie.
Live Long and Prosper, Trekkers!
