“On the Trekkie Trail”

about the making of Trekkies by Roger Nygard

TREKKIES is a look at the Universe’s most fervent fans, a document of an unparalleled, pop-culture phenomenon.

Get ready to beam up to a galaxy where dentists drill in Federation garb and the debate over Trekkies vs. Trekkers rages. Denise Crosby of STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION hosts this often-hilarious documentary about the STAR TREK fan-nomenon.

The filmmakers interviewed hundreds of devoted fans and such “Star Trek” cast members as Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, Nichelle Nichols, Walter Koenig, James Doohan, George Takei, Levar Burton, Michael Dorn, Jonathan Frakes, Kate Mulgrew and Brent Spiner.

They also talked to some of the creative forces behind STAR TREK: Co-Creator/Executive Producer Jeri Taylor, Writer/Co-Executive producer Brannon Braga, Academy-Award-Winning Make-Up Supervisor Michael Westmore, creator of the Klingon language Dr. Marc Okrand…and many others. The film creates an entertaining and endearing portrait of the landmark series that has touched the lives of people around the world.

Available for the first time on HD and Blu-ray, watch for the restored re-release of Trekkies on May 24, 2022 by Shout! Factory.
