Re: Your definition of a real 'Trekkie'?

Thanks to the media Trekkie for me has always been associated with the more hardcore fan base, the ones that would dress up as Klingons for a day at the beach and it seems if you tell other people you are a trekkie one of their first questions would be if you dress up like a Klingon/Starfleet officer. I tend to even say when I identify myself as a Trekkie that I add "I don't dress up as a Klingon/Romulan/etc".

I don't have any problems with any fan of the show using the term trekkie to decide themselves whether they just like the new movie or if they have turned their flat in England into a TNG era themed starship with transporter pad.
