Re: Trekkies or Trekkers?

Trekkie, Trekker, Trekologist, Trekaholic... I prefer Trek fan. It may not be pretentious, but it is accurate. BTW I love your post, the 4th hanson bro!

As I recall, I had never heard any term but Trekkie (usually a term of derision) until TNG came along. At that time I started hearing people refer to themselves as Trekkers. My secretary liked TNG, but thought the term Trekkie was for 'nut cases'; whereas she liked the term Trekker as being more 'dignified'. I am not sure I agree with her assessment back then, but she did say it.
