A Trekkie is cramming for the academy entrance exams.


A Trekker meets Marina Sirtis/Gates McFadden at a convention, tells her how pretty he thinks she is, that it is too bad she is married or he would ask her out.

NO

trekkie = someone who like the show and knows "most" of the characters

Trekker (sounds much sronger) is the person who has a klingon mask and uniform in his cupboard ready to wear to the next convention!!!

Trekkers are the mad funatic people that dont miss a single episode and have them all on tape...

Trekkie is someone who watches the series whenever he can...

what u sayed is exactly the wrong way round!!!!

Thats why i voted Trekki

I must admit, I am only a moderate trekker. I shall never wear a true trekkie uniform, nor shall I spend $20,000 on the latest TOS restored limited edition Phaser. I know and understand most of it, probably oaa of the star trek universe, but I'm not insane. I am also not so involoved that I can't enjoy other scifi worlds-as my sig clearly shows.

I have a uniform, I must admit. But I dont go around the house, and go out everywhere wearing it, I just wear it when I feel like it, but that's not very often.

FliX, trekkie is the one who wears Spock's ears to conventions because it makes them feel important; trekker is just someone who likes the show. You can find definitions for both in recent editions of Webster's Dictionary.

There is no differance between the words, they are just what you think sounds better, trekkie sounds better and thats the one I picked, I've only recently heard people address themselves as trekker.
No matter what I choose, no matter how much I buy, the ones I love will always be the ones who pay. Whatever life holds in store for me, I will never forget these words, "with great parents comes great reliability." This is my gift; their purse. Who am I? I'm Dobberman.

Originally, Trekkie meant "a fan of StarTrek", but Trekkies were given a bad reputation by the press as being fanatics, so the non-fanatics split off and called themselves Trekkers.

I'd never heard of 'Trekker' before this topic. Is this the same with the rest of you or not?
