Neither, thankfully. I'm just passing through The Franchise on my way to the crapper.

How about "a fan of Star Trek". Don't like convenient labels.

Re: trekkie or trekker

I don't mind either way.
There was some definition going around quite a few years ago that was something like a Trekkie just enjoys the show and knows a lot of trivia and all, but a Trekker wears costumes and goes to conventions. Could be all crap though.

I don't much care for labels either, but trekkie sounds cuter

I think NP may be right- the two words are "defined" somehow... Nevertheless, I refuse to be labeled, and I hate the word "fan" as to me it = fanatic... and even if I sound like one... I'll never admit it...

At some level, the people posting here must have at least a vague, passing interest...

Morbid curiosity and abject boredom probably account for 99% of the traffic on this site.
