    In the mid-70s BYU had its own "Star Trek" Club. I'm embarassed to admit I was interested in joining. But, after sitting through a club meeting I couldn't convince myself to join. My Ute Cousins would agree: While Trekkies are a different breed. BYU Trekkies are a different species altogether. Seeing them wear their Starfleet uniforms on campus on Thursdays, I recall Kirk's episodic command of setting Phasers on NUMB. Prehaps that was why BYU was a calderon of social rest in the 70s.
