and it's "Trekkers".*


But I love Picard too - going to see him at MegaCon this year - most of the TNG crew will be there.













*lol, I don't really care. I answer to either. I've seen Trekkers take offense though. They'd probably want me to take a purity test.

I humbly stand corrected.
I am definitely a Trekker according to the Great Wiki.

Trekkies call Leonard Nimoy 'Mr. Spock.'

Trekkers call Mr. Spock 'Len'.

He was a swashbuckling hero from a pirate movie set in outer space and was never shy about bending the rules.

Captain Kirk's rashness was tempered by Spock's logic. Picard calmed Rikers' impetousity. Total polar opposites.

I think Picard was a better captain, far more mature-he played chess while Kirk played stud poker.

I'm surprised Kirk didn't have rent-shaped tan lines on his torso.

Nevertheless, I gotta go with Kirk, if, for nothing else, the fact the he shamelessly chased alien tail across the galaxy! Remember that hot green chick? Kirk nailed her.
