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

i'd never encountered the term "Trekker" until this thread.

So, what are the chances a non-fan would've? In light of this, I'd say "Trekkie" is word designating a fan of Star Trek, "Trekker" is a forced word intended to designate some fans of Star Trek that just didn't take.
You can keep trying to spread the distinction, but I doubt the population at large will ever care enough to accept both terms; you'll just end up looking nerdier, which seems to be what you're trying to avoid.
