If you go to any movie in the metro area or board a plane at Will Rogers World Airport, you would think everyone in Oklahoma has a baby. That’s not entirely true. There’s a small group of men who have abstained from the temptations of women and remained virgins. We should honor and commend this men for not bringing more useless people into this world, being smart enough not to join the priesthood, and building an amazing recreation of the Starship Enterprise instead.
Three years ago, the set was left for dead in an Austin barn after serving as the bridge of the USS Exeter, hub of a fan-based “Star Trek” film series made in and around the Texas capitol. When production ceased in 2009, the entire set was scrapped and left to the elements.
In 2010, Oklahoma City area “Star Trek” fan John Hughes heard about the set.
“I was online one night, looking at different “Star Trek” series, and I found ‘Starship Exeter,’” Hughes said in an interview at a recent script read-through.
“I thought nothing could be more fun than making the best ‘Star Trek’ fan movie ever. I thought if you gathered a group of “Trek” fans together and we did everything ourselves, we could do a really great thing.”
I want these Trekkies to fight JediOKC in a sci-fi LARP battle. Last virgin standing wins! Think of how amazing that would be. We’d have the Enterprise vs the Millennium Falcon; Hyper Drive vs Warp Speed; Dude dressed a X-Wing Pilot vs guy pretending to be Spock. Okay, some of it would not be amazing, but I’d still watch.
Quick question: If you have an exact replica of something as iconic as the Enterprise bridge, shouldn’t it be used to make at least one adult film? I’m sure BeeBee Jonez would help! Also, if you don’t reach out to the Thunder starting lineup and get them to produce a Footlocker commercial… then F**K YOU!
Anycrap, despite the virgin jokes, I can’t dog on these guys much. Everyone is nerdy about something. For example, I’m nerdy about comedy. Marisa is nerdy about tanning beds. Patrick is nerdy about trivia and dressing his cats in superhero costumes. He’s also a drunk. We all have our faults, I suppose.
