For whatever reason, Trek is not 'cool' in the mainstream, so I wouldn't dare advertise my status as a Trekkie in public.
Sigh. ST has extremely good public acceptance and recognition in Australia. I've never had a problem (since 1979) wearing ST T-shirts, the odd trip on public transport in uniform to get to a ST function, attending ST premiere nights in costume, and so on.

You have as much chance of being ridiculed for wearing a losing football team's jersey as for a ST uniform.

As for the jury duty woman, how many people in the Australian mainstream even remember this minor new item from a decade ago? Surely the recent Adelaide comic shop guy, foiling a shoplifting in his store while he was dressed as Spider-Man, has replaced her in the public consciousness by now.
