You're Canadian, right? I know Space has been showing a lot of DS9 lately.

Although, if you ask me, you're not missing much. I never cared for DS9.

And if I could afford basic cable that would be great!. ^_^
I remember liking it in the later seasons when they started making the characters a little less two dimensional.


They (Space) has been showing all the ST shows.

They used to at least. I think.
That and Spike played a lot too (so much so that we called it the star trek channel).

They still do. I watch it every weekday. I sometimes watch it on Spike. But not often.
ST: TNG, Enterprise, Voyager, DS9 and OST...if memory serves.

Recently they have been showing the first 5 movies in lieu of the new movie coming out. The next 5 start next Sunday May 3rd. All ten in 2 weeks. Yay...:lol:

Nooo, I ain't a Trekkie...LMAO :P

Well, Farquard... I know 'tlhIngan jIH' means I am Klingon. I also know "tlhIngan jIH" is a Klingon Opera.

I know how to speak Klingon.

I also have a Friend, Mistress Koloth part of K.A.G. and Kora'Tor my RP character is part Klingon.

I suppose Trekker sounds a bit more dynamic. To my mind anyway. Trekkie sounds a bit too cuddly for my taste.

When someone isn't into Star Trek or thinks it's ok but not a big deal is talking about someone who is a big Star Trek Fan, they call them a Trekkie. When a big Star Trek fan is talking about another big Star Trek Fan, they refer to them as a Trekker.
So big fans of the shows (mainly the ones that dress up and go to conventions and such) call one another Trekkers while outsiders say Trekkies.
For a while, "Trekkie" was a derogatory term used for Trek fans by outsiders, as an analogy with "hippie," or maybe "Moonie" (a derogatory term for followers of the Reverend Sun Myung Moon and his eccentric cult). It was intended as a term of ridicule. As with most groups subjected to a derogatory label, Trek fans tried to replace it with a more dignified alternative, latching on "Trekker" by analogy with "trucker," I believe.

But over the past couple of decades, being a science fiction or Star Trek fan has lost a lot of the stigma it used to have, so the negative baggage attached to "Trekkie" has kind of faded. Or perhaps the use of labels like "Yuppie" and "foodie" removed the scent of hostile ridicule from the "-ie" suffix and it came to be seen more neutrally, or even as a term of endearment. So today the distinction between Trekkie and Trekker is somewhat moot.

I don't think I qualify as either. I like TOS and TNG, but that's basically it. Not enough to call myself a Trekkie or Trekker.

I can't call oneself Trekkie,because i don't every day watch this series,i don't every day draw fan art on series,can't remember all episodes and personages.I can call oneself only viewer this series.
