A noun, trekkers are originally fans of the TV show Star Trek: the Next Generation, and used the term 'trekker' to differentiate themselves from the original star trek fans who called themselves 'trekkies' Trekker has now come to mean a Trekkie who doesn't understand that they're a trekkie. Within the star trek community, there is still a debate over the difference between trekkies and trekkers, but the only difference is that trekkies came first, and trekkers don't like the term 'trekkie'.
"I came up with the term trekkie. So, it's trekkie, not trekker."
Gene Roddenberry, Star Trek Creator.
