Child Porn . . . The Final Frontier?

The Los Angeles Times had an interesting article yesterday about the Toronto Sex Crimes Unit's efforts to identify victims and perpetrators of child pornography. They wanted to enlist public help without actually showing the victims to the world, so they photoshopped the children out of the pictures and then posted them on the net, hoping alert individuals would be able to identify the locations or provide some other information which might lead them to the offenders. But one little bit of information in the article was completely bizarre and caught my attention. The writer claimed that, according to investigators, "All but one of the [child porn] offenders they have arrested in the last four years was a hard-core Trekkie." Bizarre, right? Since I was reading an online version of the article, I actually wondered if the article had been hacked. It was just so off-the-wall. Well, as it turns out, it appears not to be true. But, it's not as untrue as you would think. So, for those of you doing the logic here, "Almost all child porn producers are Trekkies; but not all Trekkies are child porn predators." At any rate, it really got me wondering what it is about Star Trek that makes it so appealing to the same people who produce child pornography. For the life of me, I can't think of a single thing. Got any ideas?

Excuse the oversimplification, but the reason that sexual predators like Star Trek is that evil behavior is never an individual problem.
It is either caused by an oppressive culture or has a biological cause. In either case, enlightened beings from far, far away can fix it with a vaccine or public awareness campaign.

Both the kiddie porn and the obsession with Star Trek flow from the same issue - significant problems with interpersonal skills.
Porn in general, and kiddie porn especially have a direct inverse relationship with human contact.
