I like "trekker", because the "trekker" is like more active relationship to "Star Trek", because we even go to places or buy stuff, meaning we do a trek to see Trek. :lol: And the "trekkie" is the typical fan of "Star Trek" who just watches it, butt doesn't go (trek) anywhere just in favor of Star Trek, e. g. conventions, auctions, cinema visits, etc. :)

Was that ... logical? I think Kate Mulgrew quite shares my opinion, she said something similar in the first "Trekkies" video. :D

Personally... I'm an other... Star Trek is certainly not my favourite sci-fi show... but as I like numerous shows, so I consider myself to be a sci-fi fan

I prefer "Trekkie". It's the term I grew up with (heck, I didn't even know the term "Trekker" existed until college!), and it just sounds better. That and I have the tendency to fit the "Trekkie" definition of being a pathetic nerd who could not only go into great detail about all things Trek but actually recite lines from Trek. Heck, I got to the point that when I come across an episode I've never seen before, I can actually predict the lines almost word for word. ;)

if you insist *smites AdmiralRooster* :P
But as to the question, I guess trekkie would fit, but sci-fi fan would be more appropriate

I'm relatively new to star trek, and from what I hear there was a lot of use of the "trekkie" as a negative term, but I've never had any experience with anything like that, and it seems kind of silly to shun a term that doesn't really have a negative conotation anymore. I've never cared because no one has ever hated me for liking star trek.

I guess i'll sound a bit Borgish bit it's irrelevant what i'd choose; it all means roughly the same or very similar meaning to me.

I agree. We're Trek fans, regardless of what name you use.

Greetings,

I think it's Star Trek fans who worry about the terms more than those "other folk" :)

As long as respect is used in addressing me, I'll answer to any of the above. However, when they snicker, point at me, and then laugh when asking me if I could possibly be a Trek fan...well, let's just say that's when I set phasers on "broil" :D
