Description: To be a Star Trek fan is one thing, but to be a "Trekkie" puts you in a whole different league. Why this particular show? What meaning has this show had in these people's lives? What kind of spiritual or psychological impact does it have? Does the show's message hold some kind of utopian ideal for the future? Does the show somehow create a way for people to feel they "fit in?" How has it inspired real life scientists, doctors, astronauts, and engineers? The "Star Trek" actors and the fans interviewed in TREKKIES answer these questions and others. The subjects profiled in the documentary span the entire spectrum of fans, from non-uniform wearing doctors, scientists, and teachers to Trek-uniform-wearing Dentists, Jurists, mothers, kids, and others.
