You're included on the list of types. You're one of the many who insist that it (Star Trek) is not so important but still discusses it on the Internet. I'm not sure that's a sign of sanity.

People discuss all kinds of things they find interesting but don't consider "important".

That's not mutually exclusive with any of the ones posted on Masao's list.

I'm a traditionalist.

Re: What kind of fan are you?

i have followed Star Trek since 1968 but never have thought of it in religious terms. I don't collect any of the stuff, for example: no Enterprise models in the house (save for a saucer section circa 1970), no novels (save Spock Must Die!, also 1970), and the last movies or episodes I bought were VHS copies of TSFS and TVH for less than a dollar each at a thrift store (yes, we have a DVD player, but I will never buy a set of the movies that includes TFF, or Nemesis for that matter).

The main sort of fan that I am is the married kind whose spouse has no interest in it (although we did see Generations and First Contact in theaters). However, I've had the La La Land set of original-soundtrack series music for several months now and have been exposing our teenagers to it, mostly in the car, with positive results - they have never seen a modern TV series with such good (melodically, rhythmically, harmonically) music.

I evaluate the various Trek shows and movies on two criteria only:
Is it entertaining?
Is it stupid?

That other stuff is but the imperfect image of the One True Lensflaring Awesome that is Abramaic Trekism.

I'm an Entertainist fan which means I just want to be entertained by Star Trek no matter what form it takes.

Re: What kind of fan are you?

I'm the lifer, the one that started watching back in '66, who has now retired her Vulcan ears, started knitting a sweater and chugging back some Geritol and sits back and laughs at all the felgercarb you all debate about.

Lighten up, it's just a TV show!

No Anji you are wrong.

I cannot have spent this many decades of my life watching and talking about just a tv show.

No, Anji's right. Trek is just a TV show.

On the other hand, Who's the Boss?. Now that's something to build your life around.
