Crosby Hoping To Make Trekkies 3Posted by T'Bonz - 28/06/09 at 02:06 am
Denise Crosby (Tasha Yar) hopes to create a new Trekkies movie touching upon Star Trek XI and its actors and fans as well as visits to other places missed in the first two films.
As reported by NewsOK, the popularity of the latest Star Trek film makes the timing right for a new Trekkies film. “Our intention was always to make a ‘3,’ to have a triple box set,” said Crosby. Star Trek XI and its new fans would be an obvious source for Trekkies 3. “And there are areas I still want to go to,” said Crosby. “Trekkies 1 was domestic and Trekkies 2 we went global, but we didn’t get everywhere.”
Where would Crosby like to go to find Star Trek fans? “And I’m curious still, to make it a full circle about Asia, Africa and India, like what’s going on there,” said Crosby. “Sort of our Lost in Translation version of Trekkies.”
Crosby is aware that there is a thin line between documenting the occasional oddities of fans and looking down on the fans. “It’s a fine line because you don’t want to put on kid gloves and make a recruiting film here for Star Trek,” she explained. “I really wanted to have a look into this world of fandom and this particular show, which is unlike anything else and has been sort of the granddaddy of them all. At the same time, I didn’t want to be cruel or judgmental … so I had to figure out how to really make that real for the [original Trekkies film.]”
