A fan of Star Trek
, aka Trekker, Alhough Gene Roddenberry
once mentioned that the only word he acknowledged was Trekkie. Trekkies are commonly known for their unique behavior often memorizing everything there is to know about Star Trek
, going too conventions, having every Star Trek episode on VHS or DVD. Mainstream Media often pokes fun at them for being geeks
, or just freaks
The Term Trekkie can be seen in the novel "the great trek" by E.A. Walker, of course at this point it had no relation whatsoever to Star Trek.
More than 30 years ago, A Science Fiction editor by the name of Art Saha applied the word Trekkies to Star Trek fans when he saw a group of Star Trek fans wearing pointed ears at a Science Fiction convention.
