I've read so many threads where mention is made of someone famous being a Trekkie/Trekker. I thought it was time we put together a list so we have "ammunition" to throw back at people who try to make fun of us. You know what I mean - if you think I'm dumb because I'm a Trekkie then you must think "insert name" is dumb too. Hopefully the name you insert will be someone the naysayer really likes or looks up to.

I'll start with a few off the top of my head but I want you guys to add names.
  • Colin Powell
  • Dahlai Lama
  • Tom Hanks
  • Dr. Mae Jamieson
  • Neil Armstrong
  • Jean Simmons (actress)
  • Paul Sorvino
  • Mira Sorvino (strongly suspect she is)
  • Berkeley Breathed (cartoonist - Opus, Bloom County)
  • Bill Amend (cartoonist - Fox Trot)
  • Seth McFarlane (creator of Family Guy)
  • Bill Gates
  • Al Gore
  • Eddie Murphy
I'm sure I missed quite a few as I was just going from memory so add away.

That's 'bout all for right now...

A South Park fan could correct me on this...

But I think Trey Parker and Matt Stone are fans. (At least one Trek reference was in the series, plus Brent Spiner was in the South Park movie...so who knows?)

OOps, somebody said that already. By the way, they have a whole episode which is a takeoff of "Dagger of the Mind". The South Park episode's name was something like Roger Ebert should Layoff Fatty Foods. Matt and Trey are Trekkies big time.

Ben Stiller
Conan O'Brien (from what he was saying to Shatner)
Kirstie Alley (has anyone said her?)
Tom Bergeron

An interesting aside about Matt Groening is that he has never seen a TOS episode all the way through.

King Abdullah of Jordan apparently appears in Investigations as a sciences crewman. He has no lines as he is not a member of the Screen Actors Guild.

Why can't more of them appear on the show? The ratings would soar if someone like Tom Hanks was on.

In 8 Days and one television movie, Jack Bauer killed 266 people.

WEAREBORG (I think it was you), are you sure about Ashley Judd. I know she was on TNG a few times but they were one of her first acting jobs so she isn't like other "stars" who appeared in the series. Has she said she's a Trek fan or were you assuming it because she was on TNG.

No fictional characters though please. Dr. Who, I'm assuming when you named Marty McFly you meant the character from the Back to the Future movies and not a real person or did you mean his portrayer, Michael J. Fox?.

BTW, I didn't include Barbara Adams in the list as, IMO, she's more infamous than famous. For those who don't recognize her name, she was the Whitewater juror who was featured in Trekkies. IMO, she is the type who lead to the negative stereotype that this list is fighting.

I'm not sure about Ashley Judd, but this topic is about known or suspected famous Trekkies/Trekkers. Exclude it if you want. I don't mind.

I think that the Beastie Boys may be Trek fans as well, based on their imitation of Kirk, Spock, and McCoy in the Ch-Ch-Check It Out music video.

I was just wondering. I haven't read anything about her being a Trek fan so I was curious if you had.

We need to remember if someone who is now famous appeared in Trek before they were famous it that may have been just a job to them. Others you mentioned, such as Mick Fleetwood and Whoopi Goldberg, were already famous and asked to be guests on the show.

I'll keep Ashley Judd on unless someone has information that she says she isn't/wasn't a Trek fan.

I remember Kevin Newman who did a short stint as host of Good Morning America was a trekkie (I don't know what happened to him - I think he has gone back to Canada)

And, I don't see Richard Dean Anderson on the list, Anderson, star and executive producer of Stargate SG1, thinks it would be cool for the SG1 team to go to another world and find an "away team" on the planet. B)

You should add Christian Slayter. He played the extra who woke Sulu up in The Undiscovered Country.
Religion doesn't seem to work like [the scientific method]; it has certain ideas at the heart of it which we call sacred or holy or whatever. That's an idea we're so familiar with, whether we subscribe to it or not, that it's kind of odd to think what it actually means. Really what it means is "Here is an idea or a notion that you're not allowed to say anything bad about. You're just not. Why not? Because you're not!" - Douglas Adams, author of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, "This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant!" Instead they say, "No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way!" - Carl Sagan, author and astronomer

We must question the story logic of having an all-knowing all-powerful God, who creates faulty Humans, and then blames them for his own mistakes. - Gene Roddenbery, creator of Star Trek

I'm pretty sure Drew Carey is a trek fan.

I would suspect that Weird Al Yankovic and Eric McCormack (Will and Grace) are as well. McCormack starred in 'Free Enterprise' and Will and Grace makes occassional nods to Star Trek using McCormack's character.

Good, I'm glad he's still around. Thanks for the info. I really enjoyed him on GMA.
