Mugato: Yes, it is clear his character was not fully developed at that point.

/Trekker;Trekkie. It is still one of the most influential TV shows in  history.

peterthx: Jim from Saint Paul: I 100% enjoyed this:

[ecx.images-amazon.com image 300x300]

better then Generations, Insurection and Nemesis. It's on par with First Contact.

Yes, William shattner ghost writing his own masturabtory fantasies is more entertaing then Generations, Insurrection and Nemesis.

If you think he wrote ANYTHING of that novel I have an actual starship to sell you, cheap.

/not on par with ST:FC


You're correct, it was better than First Contact.

Shadowknight: Lee451: As someone who became a Trekker in 1968, I have to place TOS on a pedestal.

I love that f;ans think using this term somehow legitimizes it more than "trekkies."


That could be because trekker is what the fans tend to call themselves, and trekkie is what pompous blowhards call them to try to dismiss them as irrelevant.

See, I don't care that people like Star Trek.  I don't even care if you want to dress up and go to conventions.  Everyone has their obsessions, and someone as geeky as me shouldn't pass judgement.  And the show itself, dated as it may be, was groundbreaking and created modern sci-fi as we know it.  I don't care for it, but we wouldn't have Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, or any of the other properties we know today without it.

But getting all pedantic about a term like "trekkie" or "trekker" is just idiotic.  It doesn't lend any credibility one way or another.

But, I suppose that particular war is lost.  Apparently someone at Google is a "trekker," since it's an accepted word on Chrome while "trekkie" is flagged as a misspelling.
