Here are my definitions of "Trekkie" and "Trekker" in 55 Form.

But just to be clear, I'm really much more of a Star Wars fan, so please don't lump me in with any of these people.

: )

Trekkies 55

These guys take Star Trek a little too seriously.
It's more than just a show to them.

A philosophy.

Even a lifestyle.

Reality check!

Trekkies are ridiculous,
and it's okay to laugh.




ALL people are laughably ridiculous somehow.

Even you.

So remember, 
when chortling: 

Trekkies are free
to laugh 
at you


Trekkers 55

They heard "Trekkie" being used as a perjorative. They didn't like being mocked.

Their response?

"I'm not a Trekkie. I'm a Trekker. Trekkie equals freak. Trekker equals fan."

They turned away from others like themselves (but moreso) to join the mocking mainstream that will always chuckle snidely anyway.


I'm a Trekkie.

Beam me up!

Wordplay 55

Anna Gram and her pal, Inne Drome,
Lived in a mixed-up, backwards home.
To Anna, time might be a mite,
But Inne, in time, emit would sight.
"U R A Mat" to Anna spelled "trauma"
While Inne announced, "A Mall a Llama."
Inne loves "Anna." Anna loves "Nein."
Sharing wines they saw grin shine.
