Re: What kind of Trekkie are you?

I hate the word Trekkie. I don't know much about these days but back in the 80s it seemed to be the media's chosen word to be derogatory about fans. As to what kind of fan I am: I've certainly passed my heyday when I was very active in fandom. I went to cons for over 25 years, on con committees, that kind of thing. I pretty much lived Trek for 20 years. These days I'm pretty much in retirement. I've put my feet up and I'm happy watching the young uns. I've pretty much gafiated. .

Re: What kind of Trekkie are you?

I own all the series first DVD boxes collection, even TAS, and all the movies (classic and JJ's).

My night book is almost always a Star Trek Novel (like, 2 out of 3), that's how I stay connected to it.

I voted B.

I could say A too, but not enough to count.
