^I know a couple of young girls going to STiD because they're smitten with Cumberbatch and "the other lead guy".
Most of the groupies along the red carpet in Sydney - those who weren't older fans in Starfleet uniforms - were trendily-dressed young women, aged about 15-25, all screaming like One Direction was in town.
Once you go down that path it becomes harder to steer away from it.

Is there almost something "cooler" about being the hardcore fan of the less popular and, well, more "culty" franchise? I've often felt that way.
I'm still not used to Doctor Who being popular. Its not really mine anymore.

I'd have to side with Wars over Trek, it's just been part of my life longer.
