Where No Fan Has Gone Before

Just when I think I've seen pretty much everything on the internet it once again manages to surprise me. Behold, Star Trek Fan Dating Sites!

No longer do you have to worship your favorite show alone and unloved! Now you can find your perfect soul mate, be they voluptuous Vulcan or crass Klingon. Just be sure to warn all the guests at your authentic Betazoid wedding that they'll be required to attend in the nude!

The "Set Phasers To Something Amusing" tag line seems to be pretty popular among these sites.



Mind you I'm not mocking these sites or the people who frequent them. Far from it. Lord knows trekkies need all the help they can get in the romance department, so I'm all for this idea.

It's just that I'm a bit surprised that there are so many of them. I suppose I shouldn't be; after all Star Trek undoubtably has the highest concentration of fans of any other pop culture property. It just seems so... narrowly specific.

If there are dating sites devoted just to Trek fans, what other specialized websites are lurking out there? How about Ooh! Ooh! The Dating Site For Fans Of Car 54, Where Are You? Or Pufnstufers, the H.R. Pufnstuf Dating Site? What about Hang In There, the online dating site for fans of Then Came Bronson? The mind boggles!

Personally I'm gonna be hopping over to this one. Wish me luck!
