    Scotty is an engineer and wouldn’t be running the transporters.

    Kirk would NEVER abandon Spock like that.

    “Trekkers” are “Trekkies” … who have a life (this from a guy who can watch the first 5 seconds of any of the Original series episodes, and then give you the episode name and synopsis of the episode).

    Betcha a nickel you’re wrong – there were several episodes where Scotty beamed them down and up.

    I used to be like that. Except it didn’t have to be the first five seconds; it could be any five seconds in the show. I can’t guarantee I can do that anymore.

    In the 1991 TV show Star Trek: 25th Anniversary Special, Leonard Nimoy attempted to settle the issue by stating that the term “Trekker” is the preferred term.

    Yeah but wasn’t it Gene Roddenberry himself who stated that it was Trekkie, and went on to state that he should know since he invented it all?

    “Trekkers” was the name that aficionados called themselves and “Trekkies” is the term used by everbody else. Serious “Trekkers” took the term “Trekkies” as an insult. I don’t think it matters as much anymore.

    No, there is a difference. And they don’t get along with each other. There is a lot to it but what it comes down to is one group enjoys the shows, has the gear and goes to the conventions. The guys on the big bang theory are of this group. The other group lives the life. Wears the uniforms to work, and has rank structure in their groups, and basically believe they are in Star Fleet.

    In the late 1960s, science fiction editor Art Saha used the word “Trekkies” to describe a group of early fans who were wearing pointy Vulcan ears at a science fiction convention. The label caught on, although some devotees felt it sounded too much like “crazies” and preferred to call themselves trekkers. To a trekker, the term trekkies creates images of fanatics struggling to distinguish between reality and fiction.

    Scotty manned the transporter many many times in the series. And the trekker/trekkie debate has been going on for years. I don’t care which one they call me.
