Well, I'd say in popular culture Star Trek fandom is associated with intelligent geekiness whereas Batman is thought of as more immature and manchild-ish.

Neither are very "highbrow" but that's my point.
Well I think you're way overestimating the esteem that Trek is held in. Much of the press surrounding Trek 09 was incredulous that Abrams was able to revive such a moribund and tired property and make it fun and watchable again. Whatever 'highbrow' credit that Trek had was spent a long, long time ago.
Some say that if you get Amazon Prime he will hand-deliver your packages during a powerslide in a classic Jag and that he's paid with bottles of octane booster.

All we know is, he's not The Stig but he is The Stig's non-trademarked generic cousin.
