coz nerds generally get picked on and laughed at a lot more than other people


go up to someone in the street and ask them what they think of Star Trek and they'd say its for the nerds and science geeks


and im not a nerd or a science geek

Star Trek is nerdy because of the Vulcans. Nerds and Vulcans are a lot alike. :-)

I think these days that you might add certain types of pop culture fans to that definition. But it's changing. Other words have been reclaimed and redefined by the people they were meant to insult -- and the same thing is happening with
"Nerd".

I don't know, but it can be annoying. My wife does not like Star Trek. I made the mistake of thinking, well she will come to like it, or she will learn to like it because I do. WRONG! I didn't realize at the time how polarizing it can be.

As long as she at least gave it a go. People aren't always going to like the same things. Nobody in my immediate family is a Star Trek fan except for me, but my mum and dad watched it with me (he kind of likes it and even Mum chuckled at a couple of things.) But my sister came out with "Star Trek sucks" without any evidence that she's seen even five minutes of it. That strikes me as misinformed.

Look, just don't talk about Star trek around your friends and if you want to meet really cool new friends just go to a Star Trek convention, there you can be yourself !
