Default Famous Star Trek Fans?

How many celebrities and other well known persons have admitted to being Trekkies? I can't think of any off the top of my head, even though i've heard of a few. Are there famous closet trekkies? You know, those who are fans but don't want to admit it because someone might think they're a geek? Any famous people ever say they were proud to be a Trekkie? If you know of them, please list them here!

Barack Obama said in an interview that he found TOS pretty inspiring, when growing up.

Shoot, and I can't remember the name of the Congressman who likened the "hawks" in the government to Klingons, but I'd be willing to bet he's a regular viewer.

Oh, hey! Louis "Scooter" Libby is a Trekkie! Maybe he got a chance to catch up on episodes while he was in prison for trashing the US Constitution!
