Storyline

In this follow-up to the popular 1997 documentary, Denise Crosby returns for another look at fans of the "Star Trek" franchise. This time there are interviews with fans from other countries, updates on fans featured in the original movie, and performances by "Star Trek"-themed "filk" bands. The filmmakers visited fans all over the world, including an Englishman who transformed his flat into a starship and listed this on the Internet for $2 million, and the first convention ever held in Serbia. The movie also checks in on some of the original profilees like wunderkind Gabriel Koerner and alternate Whitewater juror Barbara Adams. Written by Eric Sorensen

Quotes

Barbara Adams: What did you think of Enterprise this week?
Jon Garrison: If they had George Lucas to write for them, make it more like Star Wars, it'd probably be a better show.
Barbara Adams: It's a different genre of science fiction.
Jon Garrison: Star Wars is a lot better because it's got more, you know, laser fights, more, you know... They pretty much don't have different settings on their laser guns. It's, you know, one shot, one kill, sorta thing, unless they wing 'em or something.
Barbara Adams: Star Trek is better because of the philosophy and the ideology.
Jon Garrison: ...

Obsession....or devotion.
19 November 2012 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I saw the first "Trekkies" movie and wasn't particularly impressed. I assumed the film would talk about how strange some of the Star Trek fans were but was surprised with the film's theme that these are normal folks--which some clearly were NOT! I had no intention of seeing this sequel film, but after watching William Shatner's new documentary "Get a Life" on Netflix, the next film recommended to me was "Trekkies 2" and I thought I'd give it a try. And, interestingly, the theme of "Trekkies 2" IS, at times, what I thought the first film should be--as it not only shows a WIDE variety of fandom (especially fans throughout the world) but also actually asked 'how much is too much?'. I appreciated this discussion about what the difference is between healthy and unhealthy obsession (such as the lady who dressed up in a Star Trek uniform for jury duty). They ask 'what is a NORMAL fan'--and I appreciated that. The film also bounces around the world and visits with fans and conventions on several continents.

Now this is not to say I was in love with "Trekkies 2"--it had a few problems. The film was VERY episodic and bounced around too much. Had it stuck with one or two themes, the film would have been tighter and more meaningful. Often, the film looked like a lot of fans just talking and talking without unifying narration or an overall plan. It could have also used some editing. It also would have benefited from EITHER exploring the psyche of the fans OR discussing the fandom around the world and doing both (plus several other themes) was just taking on too much. As a result, the final product looks more like a fan film and less like a documentary to interest the average viewer. Because of these factors, I MUCH prefer "Get a Life"--it was more compact and focused and recommend you see this one.
