Screen Shot 2013-01-14 at 8.28.13 PM

So wrote Hope Reeves in Sunday's New York Times Magazine in a short item headlined "Pick Me Up, Scotty."

She also introduced me to trekkiedating.com, a new competitor for Trekpassions, whose incept date was 2004.

Here's the magazine piece in its entirety.

How many lonely Trekkies are there? Trekpassions.com, a dating Web site since 2004, now has a competitor, trekkiedating.com. Membership is free at trekpassions.com. The newer site has a "premium account" option — which lets you see full-size photos of fellow Klingon-speakers — for $24.99 a month. Trekkies "can take their passion for the shows and movies pretty seriously," says Frank Farkas, who works for trekkiedating.com's parent company. "They may want to find a partner who does as well."

I would go to trekkie conventions if the girls looked like the one above...unfortunately, most make Worf seem like a reasonable alternative including the fact you'd have to switch teams.
