Secret files reveal police feared that Trekkies could turn on society

Before Al Quida: Before ISIS: Before Bin Laden, there was.....Trekkies!
For years Star Trek fans – known as Trekkies – have been the butt of jokes about their penchant for wearing pointy ears and attending science fiction conventions. But the police feared British fans of the cult American show might boldly go a little too far one day.
