Trekkies Set Phasers to Fund: Raising, That Is

A few Star Trek: Enterprise aficionados are aiming to go where no fanbase has gone before- to fund an additional season of the UPN show themselves. They hope to collect $32 million from fellow Trek freaks and hand it over to UPN chief Les Moonves.

The groups also hope to entice the Sci-Fi Channel to consider buying Enterprise, as well as USA, TNT and Spike TV.

I won't make any cracks about the geekiness of these fans (those in glass houses, as it were), but I will wish them the best. Their dedication is admirable. We've all been fans of shows and franchises clearly past their prime, and it's often hard to let go. And if they're successful, they could change the face of television, similar to how the record DVD sales for Family Guy got the show renewed years after the fact.

2 other geekspeak:

  • You cave too easy, Chief. Tell those Trekkies to take those Vulcan ears off, sell their tickets to Comicon and get over it.

    Now, excuse me. I'm off to purchase the "Buffy" dvd set and re-watch "The Gentleman" episode, while wearing a TWoP t-shirt.
