Commonly, people who loves Star Wars loathe Star Trek. And vice versa. Lots of evidence on this. As you can see on this video on YouTube :-)
But here, in Indonesia, lots of Trekkies are Star Wars fans too ! and the same thing also applies for Star Wars fans. Lots of them are Star Trek fans too.
As You can see on the member page of Indo-StarTrek. Despite the LCars user interface, the federation backdrop, you can find a member whose mugshot is a picture of him wearing a jedi hood and holding a lightsaber. And he stands peacefully among other members who wears the famous star trek uniform.
Next week, on June 14th, 2009, we will have a premiere of Star Trek 9 at IMAX Keong Mas Theatre. People have been asked to wear their uniform. Unfortunately I left my Star Trek uniform back home at Surabaya, but I will definitely be there. This should be exciting. Hope to see some old friends :-)
And some good news for the Trekkers *the political correct term is trekkers, not trekkies btw*, I've heard they (the one who owns Star Trek intelectual properties in Indonesia) are pretty excited themself. And probably will do a follow up convention, maybe doing some signing session *gasp!*
ps, theres a non-scientific way to proof how equal Indonesia's love for Star Trek and Star Wars. Just hit googlefight :P
