Re: What's the difference between a trekkie and a trekker?

The other issue, of course, is that these distinctions are only meaningful to the handful of people who care about them.

Try explaining to most people that, no, you're a "Trekker," not a Trekkie, and they're just going to look at you funny . . . which, ironically, is probably the opposite of what you were going for!
Exactly! Everyone understands that a Trekkie is a fan of a show called Star Trek. If you try to use the word Trekker...not so much!

I much prefer the word Trekkie, to me it is a lot more fun!
