To Boldly Go... on a date

I’d always assumed Star Trek fans reproduced asexually, like tribbles, but apparently they find love the way the rest of us do: on the Internet. If you like candlelit dinners, moonlight strolls, and debating whether or not Farscape was a better show than Babylon 5, then Trek Passions is the personals site for you. Jim Tracy, publisher of Online Dating Magazine, discussed the site last week on MSNBC’s The Situation, where host Tucker Carlson snickered at the prospect of Trekkers finding romance online. (Like his orange bowtie is such a chick magnet.) Still, it’s not clear whether Trek Passions accommodates alternative lifestyles, like, say, Klingons who want to date Romulans. Guess that’s really the final frontier.

    Woah. Only six listings in DC and five of them are GUYS. But then, who goes to anything Star Trek hoping to meet women? On the other hand, thats more women than seem to be on the Yahoo personals, and while the competition is plentiful, it isn’t exactly “game recognize game” (exception is the dude in the Data outfit. He knows how hard it is out here for a pimp).
    But could this trek site offer the same “too cool for online dating” hipster factor of Spring Street or Jdate?

    I’d rather date a Trekker than a smarmy pundit who’s knowledge of any subject runs to what he reads in headlines.

    At Last! I can find the data look-alike of my dreams!

    You haven’t experienced love until you’ve experienced Klingon love.

    I’ll give “Farscape” a slight edge over “Babylon 5″ but both are head over heels better than any “Star Trek” product…except for, probably, “Wrath Of Khan” (it needed to be said).
