Sign Me Up, Scotty...

Already find yourself dating Klingons or Vulcans or singles who seem like they're from space, the final frontier? Skip the formalities and sign up for TrekPassions, the online dating site for science fiction fans. And yes, they've already added a "Browncoat" Group. If you don't know what that is, this probably isn't the site for you. According to the report in the CBS news site:
Trek Passions received a boost back in March, when, on his late-night talk show, Conan O'Brien quipped: "The fans say the dating website is going great and any month now they hope a girl will join." It's not quite as bad as that. Although Passions Network President Michael Carter says they don't track such things, an informal count suggests more than a quarter of the 2,550 users are women. [...] In many ways the site attracts about what you'd expect. One person interviewed for this story left the endearingly rambling voice mail of a man not entirely comfortable with women. And some profiles seem to be written in another language: "A TOS-TNG-DS9 Fan Looking For par'Machi."
As someone who just told a story on Shabbat afternoon about how Return of the Jedi helped me get an SAT question right, I'm so glad I didn't understand that.

It's a whole other world that is far beyond anything we can imagine. May they live long and prosper.

The Original Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine - I presume, and yes, I'm ashamed that I kow this. I blame several years living with my now ex-husband (who I wouldn't be surprised to find on that site . . .

I guess I should be concerned that I'm also looking for P'Machi, but I am strictly a TOS.

But there are no Jewish men on the site!

I'd also recommend you to try webdate*com... It is also a cool dating site that will allow you to find your match anywhere in the world.
