I consider myself a trekker, not a trekkie. For some people it's the same and it's a pointless and endless discussion, but actually both terms have got very different meaning, and they're described on that movie called "Trekkies".
For how long? It's been 15 years, maybe more.
I am a trekkie...and whatever that movie says...what...ever...I'm too old to differentiate between the rabid fandom and the general fan.

I got into star trek at a millitary boarding school where there was a bunch of people that locked down the televsision every day about an hour before anything startrek related would begin
Wow..that is kinda cool. I used to watch the most Trek in my life when I worked as a bartender at a hotel. We...the kitchen staff were all trekkies!! Such a strange place for the fandom.
I started watching Trek when it first ran...in the 60's....I swear to God I remember it. But...I was formally inducted into the fandom during the endless re-runs that ran during the 70's an 80's.
Love it!! So..what does that make it?/ 40 yrs?
Something like that.
