Re: Is there a recipe for becoming a trekkie?

I think just watching the shows makes you a viewer. IMO, a Trekkie is more involved with Star Trek, mentally, physically and/or emotionally. Knowing detailed knowledge of the Star Trek cosmos, having a deep fandom, dressing up to go to conventions, having a collection (videos, props, etc.), speaking Klingon as a language, contemplating episodes to help guide you in life, letting it direct your moral compass, even some go so far as to treat it religiously. I think those are the true Trekkie.

Re: Is there a recipe for becoming a trekkie?

  1. Mix flour, sugar, milk, eggs, and cellular peptides in a bowl.
  2. Pour mixture into baking pan.
  3. Heat in oven at 470 degrees for 47 minutes.
  4. Slather mint frosting on cake.

I watched classic TOS reruns when I was a toddler. I've been a Trekkie/Trekker since Ford was President.
I must be just slightly ahead of you then, my toddler years were when Nixon was President. This was also right around the time TAS came on, and I also watched that with my mom, who used to say how funny she found it when I would ask her why Spock was a cartoon on the morning show, but a real person on the evening show.
Whippersnappers, I was watching Star Trek when Johnson was President!

Those were the days. I too watched Star Trek and the animated Star Trek during it's original NBC run. I have the Star Trek Concordance with the episode dial wheel, the Star Trek Blueprints, the Spaceflight Chronology, the Blish Adaptations, all the Bantam novels and the Foster Star Trek Log books adapting TAS.

I am a Trekkie, and always have been.
