Security Threat: Police Concerned With STAR TREK Fans

British police were apparently concerned that fans of sci-fi shows like Star Trek could have started a cult, revolted against society causing anarchy, instigated cyber-attacks or committed suicide.

Fans of Star Trek, The X Files, Dark Skies and Roswell were considered potential security threats.

Security officials believed the turn of the millennium could have been the point at which the gloves would come off for sci-fi fans.

‘Conspiracy theorists who believed the end of the world was nigh’ were thought to be fuelled ‘by television dramas and feature films mostly produced in America’. The central concern was the ‘devotion certain groups and individuals ascribe to the contents of these programmes’.

The official dossier was entitled ‘UFO New Religious Movements and the Millennium‘, and is thought to be a response to the 1997 Heaven’s Gate mass suicide cult.

While a suicide cult is no joke, the thought that sci-fi fans could cause mass societal anarchy is tending towards ridiculous.

A police spokesperson had this to say: “We have no knowledge of this.”

But, the truth is out there. Far out there.
