I am a fan not a trekkie or trekker, damn it. (Shout out to DeForest Kelly, RIP)
One may find that there is far more to fandom than simple labels and some people don’t do well with stereotyping. Not that the OP is in error, rather that there is so much cross over for some fans between the two definitions that many people will fall in both or neither category.
Yes, I have a uniform, have attended private Star Trek events in costume, attended conventions in costume, paid to be on the set during Star Trek filming, and yet STO is the first Star Trek thing I have done since 2006 and I haven’t a clue or care what the combination is to Kirk’s safe in episode 29.
I am very much a fan of the show and will love to argue canon at times, but it’s all a lark nevertheless. It’s some writers’ concepts (some might fine writing in a lot of cases) for entertainment. Entertainment that I happen to thoroughly enjoy.
