  • 43% referred to themselves as “Trekkies.”
  • 79% said they were involved in Star Trek fandom because they agreed with the philosophical ideals of the shows.
  • Fellow fan behavior considered by the interviewees to be “deviant” were was follows: Unable to tell reality from fantasy (89%); considers Star Trek “their whole world” (67%); indulging in cosplay (47%); referring to oneself as a character name or taking on a “rank” (39%); producing fan films (13%); playing in themed music bands (4%).
