    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.

    The local Star Trek fan clubs with the Seventh Fleet will be promoting the new Star Trek film up and down the Wasatch Front. The USS Kelly and SS White Buffalo will be at the jordan Commons in Sandy. The USS Ursa Major will be at the Valley Fair Mall Megaplex. The USS Essex will be at the Legacy Crossing in Centerville. The USS Ticonderoga will be at The Junction in Ogden. We are even in Idaho with the USS Atlantis at the Century Cinema in Burley.

    I would argue that Star Trek Insurrection was better than Generations was. It was a lot more entertaining and a lot less campy. It held a lot closer to the tone and style of the series than did Generations.
