Trekkies Strike Back!

Heres a list Empire critics have composed of the 500 Greatest movies of all time. Star Wars is listed five times in Empires Movie Hall of Fame with Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back placed at no 3. Is'nt it curious that Star Trek is completely absent from this list? Our fast paced new Star Trek XI movie has introduced a new breed of trekkie fans to the franchise (dare I even call them that!) spurred on by the sleek, daring crew of the USS Enterprise 1701 directed by Emmy and Golden Globe-winner JJ Abrams.

Image owner/creator: Paramount Pictures or CBS Paramount Television.

Empires 500 movies are an illuminating collection of reviews amassed over time from polls to dedicated fans but were the voters under the influence of Star Wars? I'm serious, Vader's power of the darkside is obviously weaving its dark spells on planet earth or else this skullduggery is a reflection of the times were in with darkside mortals outnumbering trekkie lifeforms in the galaxy.

So I'm calling all trek fans to join Empire and submit "Star Trek, The Wrath of Khan" as a NO 1 all time great. Its crunch time trekkie fans to strike back at the force!

Here's a fun youtube clip from the DMPhoenix you'll enjoy. Its awesome. Vader's darkside forces are mobilized for war against Captain Picard's flagship Enterprise! Yessss! how my heart bleeds for them! Who am I rooting for? Why the Enterprise of course. I'm a fully fledged trekkie and you better believe it. I was itching with excitement to see Picard's Federation flagship swoop in for the kill and obliterate Vader's force completely. Does it happen? Quantum torpedoes vs. lasers, watch and see who wins.

I remember when I got the trekkie bug (there I go again) in 1984, I was watching Star Trek TOS on TV and eating my dinner with my brother and believe me I was totally glued. I was 14. Suddenly my mom cried out, "Turn that off!" In a state of disbelief I looked away from the TV and protested but it was no use, she looked at me with her blazing eyes and I got that horrible melting feeling just as Dr McCoy and Spock were arguing in Sickbay except this time it was about the practical use of tribbles which McCoy had grown rather fond of. Spock was being all logical and cold hearted....

Now you know how Captain Picard felt, snatched from his beloved USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D and dragged aboard that Borg cube, against his willpower by all those heartless drones.

"I will resist you with every strength in my body." 

Smitten by the spacebug, I set my secret trekkie plan in motion. This was just the beginning of something new. It took a while saving up but within time, I had my own TV and was recording Star Trek TOS every week. How I treasured those classic re-runs.





Worf "They're now locking lasers on us!" On hearing this news Data has a major fit of infectious laughter.

I love the enlightening philosophical nature of trek, its really deep. So I suspect the same is true of new trek fans who having seen Star Trek XI are by now infected with the spacebug and in severe need of more trekkie fixes. Where else can we turn to except 726 episodes of five action series and one animated series. Damn those space bugs! Every single Star Trek movie including The Wrath of Khan has failed to meet the grade wth Empire isolating Star Trek to the outermost corners of the galaxy. Shame on those darkside ptaqs! They thought they could outwit us with their statistics.

The one thing I'd liek to comment on is that we have an anti-Trek parent in common. Mine was my step-dad who hated Star Trek for the simple reason that I loved it. he enver watched it, but it bugged him that I enjoyed it, and therefore it was a four-letter word around our house. I had to sneak and watch it when I could and keep all my collection stuff hidden at my Grandma's house. So I can relate!

Some of my family used to suggest that Star Trek was my hand picked "other" family. Maybe they were hinting 'cos i was watching tv all the time and then...Star Trek TNG, DS9 and VOYAGER were being produced and aired for the first time on tv! Together! What a rush. Whenever I turned on the Tv, Trek was busy defeating bad guys and restoring order in the universe.

...with an all powerful hive mind, like the Borg! Livingsword. Awesome. Data will save the Enterprise....Go Data!
