Soon after Trek Passions.com’s launch in 2004, Conan O’Brien caught wind of the site and mentioned it in the opening monologue of his show.

Farkas has a similar story about when Tosh.0 featured Trekkie on its blog.“It’s become more fashionable to be a geek in the past five or six years,” says Gough, citing the popularity of TV shows like The Big Bang Theory and the mainstream interest in the upcoming Star Trek film.
“But at the same time, a lot of these people are still single, and they’re looking for that payoff.”So love long and prosper.
