I have had people say similar things to me. My response is simple:"If it weren't for 'us' dreamers than there would be no innovation, no desire to improve the things we already have."
Remember the show "how Shatner changed everything", or something named like that? I think it was on the History channel. I had many non-Trek fans tell me they watched that show and that they had a different feeling toward us Trek fans after watching it.
