Isn't it much the same as Vulcan or Vulcanian?
“Vulcanian” was used early in Trek TOS. I believe the last episode in which it was heard was “Court Martial.” Since “Vulcan” sounded like an adjective anyway, it was simpler to use the same word for both the planet and its inhabitants.

Actually, come to think of it, Vulcans should be from the planet Vulc.

. . . I do remember that I had to stand up in front of my 8th grade English class to give a report or something, and I must have made the subject Star Trek . . .
I gave an oral report on Star Trek in my 11th grade Spanish class -- in Spanish. Hell, the whole school already knew I was one of the geeks.

My name in French class was of course Jean-Luc.
* Star Trek (09) did not erase your DVD collection from existance.
* Nick Meyer was not a Trek fan when he was hired to direct TWOK.
* TWOK-TVH was a reboot of TMP.
* Opinions are not "flaws". * Why post so much about things you hate?

Re: Trekkies or Trekkers?

I really don't care about being called "Trekker" or "Trekkie". For my friends I'm totally Trekkie (I showed them the list which was quoted by the 4th hanson bro). My birthday gift was a T-Shirt with photo of Kirk&Spock&McCoy and sign "I'm Trekkie!".
I feel like a big Star Trek fan, that's it.
