I care about Gene Roddenberry. The man had a dream that became a reality and spread throughout the stars. I however really think he'd be laughing his head off at all this. I can hear him now "hehe Look at how some of the fans are acting over a TV show!" And if I remember rightly Trekkies are people who grew up Who TOS, Trekkers are people who grew up with TNG, DS9 and Voy. But at the end of the day it's all just semantics.
Rest in peace Mr Roddenberry. Your creation has saved my life more than once. I owe you one.
