Revenge of the Nerds (Movies)

"You're like one of the nerds from Revenge of the Nerds with your Star Trek references."

In the epic battle between Good and Evil, there have been two great wars waged: The United Federation of Planets versus the Klingons and the Nerds versus the Jocks. For the side of Good, we have two groups stressing the importance of equality and cooperation and having a certain proclivity for wearing outlandish costumes. For the side of Evil, the Klingons and Jocks fight for their right to be tyrannical jerks with prominent foreheads and an overwhelming need to overcompensate. Okay, I might be generalizing a bit, but if you want this to be quick and painless, bear with me. Veronica, friend of the Nerd (and all other disenfranchised peoples), is wholly on the side of Good in this double-dealing, cheatin', and stealin' world — but that doesn't mean she has to know all about Star Trek and the capabilities of Hearst's supercomputer. Even with that wry observation of Mac's full-on geekitude, our crusader for truth still snarks her way into the hearts and minds of Trekkie convention-goers everywhere.
