Are you a Trekkie or Trekker?

Trekkie was originally seen as pejorative.
I would not be a Trekker by this system, but since I can explain how Warp Drive works, tell you the warhead mass of a photon torpedo (TNG era -- two kilograms) and have seen every Trek (except TMP) at the earliest possible showing on opening day, I'd say I'm a bit more than this definition of Trekkie.
I don't like either label. The don't sound right to me... as words. Trek is pretty good word, but once one starts conjugating it it sounds awkward (trekked, trekking), I'm a Star Trek Fan, or Trek Fan, if I bother labeling myself, but that is no reflection on people who choose to be Trekkers or Trekkies.
