Oh My God. I'm A Geek.

Sitting in the theater last night before the Star Trek movie (ZOMG!!!! GO SEE IT!!! NOW!!!)...

Ty: Do you think Star Trek fans are as excited about this movie as Star Wars fans were before Phantom Menace came out?

Me: But you're a Star Trek and Star Wars fan. Aren't you as excited?

Ty: Yeah, but Star Wars fans are so much more avid in their love of their movies. More so, I think, than Star Trek fans.

Me: But, what you're saying is that Star Wars fans are better than Star Trek fans. And that's just elitist.

Ty: No. But Star Wars fans are on a different plane than Star Trek fans.

Me: What about LOTR fans?

Ty: Well, that's a completely different subject. They're on a completely different plateau than sci-fi people. Kind of like you Dune geeks.

Me: HEY! HEY! Don't go there! Don't mesh me and my kind in with that LOTR ilk!

Ty: Well, you know what I mean. You guys are just different.

Me: You know, Dave turned his Little Dave graphic into Paul Muad'Dib and I had a total geek out on his blog the other day. I want a Little Heather Fremen!

Ty: Would you be that chick...

Me: NO! I so wouldn't be Chani. I'd be a Bene Gesserit. Reverend Mother. Definitely.

Ty: Would you have to be a concubine?

Me: Probably. Almost all Bene Gesserits were part of the Kwisatz Haderach breeding program. So, I most likely would have to go off to some remote planet and shag some obscure member of the Landsraad.

Ty: Yeah.

Me: But I am infertile, so I would probably not be a breeding Bene Gesserit. But then again, Reverend Mothers could control their bodies with a thought, so I could cure my own PCOS! Bonus!

Ty: Blink

Me: Oh my God. I'm such a geek.

Ty: Yes. Yes you are.

As I said, wear your combadge with pride. ;)

Did you like the original Star Trek-tv show? I did, in all it's campy glory, but I have not bothered with any of the seqels or follow-ups. So I just really didn't think that there would be a need to make yet another movie. (Ducking to avoid the shoes you are throwing at me.) ;-)

Yes - you totally are - a *lovable* geek!

Expat No. 3699 said...

With a capital 'G'...but I love that about you.

Jessica said...

Its ok, that just makes you better than the rest.

Avitable said...

As a non-Star Trek fan, even I was totally excited about this film. Which I've now seen three times.

Ashlie- Mommycosm said...

Um, yeah - for once I'm not in agreement. I just don't get the whole Star Trek thing. But, then again, I only discovered the whole Star Wars appeal this year. Maybe I'm just behind on the curve;)

Coal Miner's Granddaughter said...

NATUI - I most definitely will!

Other Heather - I loved the classic Trek! I watched it as a kid. I'm very fond of the episode "Who Mourns for Adonis?"

Sybil Law - Thanks!

Employee No. 3699 - Oh, so capital!

Jessx - Hee hee!

Avitable - And I'm the geek?

MommyCosm - That's OK. You don't have to be a Trekkie to appreciate the movie. Go see it!

Gypsy said...

Thinking about it, I would totally don a brown coat for a Firefly convention. If they had such a thing.

Coal Miner's Granddaughter said...

Gypsy - Oh, but they do, m'dear! I've seen Browncoats at Dragon-Con in Atlanta! Hmmmm, methinks someone will have to make the trek north this Labor Day weekend. Hmmmm......
