Trekkies to Abrams: Your Film is Too Fun (The Onion News Network Strikes Again)

Seeing as Reed Farrington doesn’t have the internet and refuses to turn his cell phone on (no landline either), the only way I can share this video with him is by posting it on Film Junk in hopes he’ll come across it on his iPod touch in the Seaway Mall’s food court (free wireless, DUH). This one is for you Reed. I’m sure this will be one instance where someone agrees whole heartedly with a satirical fake news report.


Trekkies Bash New Star Trek Film As ‘Fun, Watchable’

Around the Web:



  • That’s pretty hilarious. I’ve been a Trek fan for decades, and I’ve got admitedly mixed feelings about the movie. Mainly it’s that I’m a Next Generation guy, and so I’ve never really been a big fan of Kirk & crew. I’m planning on giving this a chance, though, and I’ll be seeing it openning weekend.

  • Reed is prepared for this, he left his job and is subconsciously changing his life because the one constant in his life will be changing midnight Thursday – TREK will be like Abercrombie & Fitch in a space ship!

    This was also posted on another site where too many of the people who commented actually thought this was real and went on a rant on how trekkies are idiots for saying its too entertaining.

  • Rusty James

    I think we all know the site you’re talking about.

  • I can’t wait for the DVD release containing the 3 hour bonus of Andorians discussing the merits of … oh, whatever she said.

    (Yes, this was hilarious. I love it when people make fun of Trekkies. I’ve got the hide of a Gorn.)

  • “Meanwhile, an elderly black woman is following President Obama around and shedding a single tear whenever he does anything.”

    Funniest part.
