    but… I’m a Trekkie… it’s what we used to be called decades ago, and “trekker” was an insult. I don’t understand the change. maybe it was regional.

    Then you need to seperate the Trek fans into TNG is better or TOS is better…

    Roberta Barlow, back in the mid 70s I referred to a co-worker as a trekkie and he firmly corrected me, telling me it was “trekker.”

    living in different parts of the country (within the same decade) – I’ve heard both “trekkie” and “trekker” used, so I think it is regional ….

    @Miss Mokie

    It’s like with any name for a group: even if it’s the accepted term, once it’s used long enough, it becomes weighed down with inferred meaning. The word oriental, in and of itself, means nothing more than ‘from the east,’ just as occidental means ‘from the west.’ But over time, oriental took on other shades of meaning, until it was considered offensive. Same thing happened with Trekkie. People think it means something it wasn’t meant to.

    My older brother was a fan from the beginning. He never actually became a Trekkie OR a Trekker, but he was on board when the show was still under the Damoclean sword of cancellation because few others were watching. But he is also a major fan of Star Wars, including the prequels. Obviously, he doesn’t get into choose-upsiding. He just enjoys.

    It doesn’t matter because once the liquor kicks in there will be a showdown and then it will be Vulcan pinch vs. mind control. This is not going to turn out well.

    I can testify from personal experience that there are some groups – and even subgroups within larger groups – that just don’t play well together.

    Blunt force trauma and psychological warfare may or may not be involved.
