Trekkie.

Trekker sounds like going hiking in the mountains.

Trekkie. I'm most fond of TNG and Voyager, and to a lesser extent DS9. Enterprise, the animated series, and original series are ok, but hold my interest less often for the most part. I'm looking forward to the new movie, the 2009 one was actually very good.

My understanding (and I stand to be corrected in this) is that the epithet "Trekkie" is reserved to those who are fans of TOS, whereas, "Trekker" is open to those whose fandom is limited to TNG, DS9, Voyager and Enterprise.

Somewhere in geekdom there was a meeting.

^^^ Well, I renounce the Geek Council and call myself a bit of a Trekkie anyway. ;)

I probably know more SW history though... but, hey, thumbs up for all SF!

I'm a fan but I don't use the terms. I have DLed & watched all 5 action series, the cartoon series & all the movies. I have a replica bat'leth that I bought on eBay as well as a Klingon dagger replica; the blades are made of stainless-steal so they're definably just for collecting & NOT toys. I also have a Franklin Mint pewter-model of the Defiant from DS9 & a Klingon Bird Of Pre

Star Trek is great. I started watching it as a child with my dad. My favorite movies are first contact and the voyage home, as for the series;
TNG>Voyager>TOS>ds9>enterprise,
maybe this should be in the unpopular opinion thread. :)

The term "Trekker" actually dates back to at least the mid-'70s. In my experience, it's a sobriquet adopted by those who seem to feel the name "Trekkie" is somehow childish.

I'm a Trekkie, personally. :)

It is my understanding that a Trekker is a diehard fan, and most likely to have been a child watching the original series. They will generally know all of the on and off stage trivia, and maybe own an original prop. Trekkies are the newer generation, who are by no means less fanatical, but let's just say would be more open to fanfic and cross play. Kids can be Trekkies. You have to have lived Trek to be a Trekker. Trekkies get made fun of at school.


Also, OP: punctuation?

One of my earliest memories is of watching the opening credits of TOS, when it was still on NBC. Grew up watching the reruns. About as old-school a fan as you can get. Back in the day, there was none of this "Trekker" nonsense - we were all Trekkies, nerds, and mocked a lot by so-called "normal" people (who saw nothing wrong with cosplaying as their favorite football players, or painting their faces with the colors of their favorite teams...).

As for fanfic, I've been making a fair number of contributions to the Star Trek Online forums' Literary Challenges - one story featuring my main STO character, Rear Admiral Sills of the USS Hans Asperger, and a couple with the Ferengi Cdr. Grunt and his ragtag crew (a Klingon science officer, a Pakled engineer, and a couple of Andorians). Grunt's first story was "The Last Voyage of the Hybrid", about how he lost his first command, USS Hypatia, to a Borg attack. The other was a set of personnel files compiled by Lt. Brel Tan, ship's counselor of Grunt's new ship, the Bastogne. Currently, I'm working on the new Literary Challenge, which involves the Bastogne responding to a distress signal from a station with sensitive technology that's being invaded by parties unknown.

And yeah, I'm a Trekkie. :)
