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 film, 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 film also checks in on some of the original profilees like wunderkind Gabriel Koerner and alternate Whitewater juror Barbara Adams. Written by Eric Sorensen

Quotes

Jacqueline Lichtenberg: The title of your film is anathema to the fan, okay? Trekkies is the putdown. I'm not a Trekkie, I am a Trekker, and that is a big difference. That's the difference between the people who go overboard and the people who don't.

unnecessary sequel
31 May 2005 | by cheroldSee all my reviews

I watched this just after watching the original Trekkies, and to be fair, if I hadn't just seen the other movie I might not be as critical as this one, but it is very weak in comparison.

Trekkies 2 feels like it was made out of left over material from the first movie. Not literally, since they did go out and film new stuff, but thematically, since they covered the topic quite thoroughly in the first movie and simply had little left to work with. The movie feels less focused and more random than the original; a bunch of disparate elements poorly tied together by an international theme. It also has rather cheesy narrative dialog introducing each section that sounds like the sort of artificial patter you get when people introduce an award at the Emmys.

It does have some interesting things in it, and if you haven't seen the first one you might think this was decent, but for fans of the original movie the most interesting part of this one will probably be the end in which Trekkies discuss their reaction to the original movie.
