Being the creature of habit that I am... I would say that I am a "Trekkie". This being because I was a Trekkie before "trekkers" were ever thought about.

Then after reading the last of the qualifications in your list.... my opinion of my classification was all the more reinforced! :offtopic:

I'm almost ashamed to say that I am just a fan.

I would say, based on the list given, that I would be more of a Trekker.
