I don't tend to push my views on people, but if you set me up for an argument, I'll be more than happy to oblige.
I agree with these statement 100% I know a bunch of people that just don't get into Sci-Fi in any way. That does not bother me. But when someone finds out I am a Trek fan, then they start with the "nerd" stereotype attacks, then I WILL lecture them on the aspects I find appealing. I don't expect these people to turn into Trek convert fans in any way.

This is what happens to most trek fans, just because we love star trek we are regarded as nerds. Therefore are opinion could not possibly be intelligent. We are just dreamers, who just happen to believe that our future could possibly be better than where it's heading.

I've only had a couple of instances where a couple of my friends tried to deride me for enjoying Star Trek. I'd smugly remind them that the cell phones they were holding in their hands were inspired by Treknology....by "dreamers infatuated with what may be, and making it NOW".
