Star Trek fans and haters, everyones opinions please.?

Why are thoes who like Star Trek always referred to as 'geeks'
And dont just say, 'they are'. I want propper reasons as to why liking a certain programme can lead to such a degrading 'tag'
Update: Melanie....Very funny.......now grow up, you might find you get further in life,
Update 2: kr_toronto.....if the rest of the world knew that, i would gladly admit to being a geek.
Update 3: Terran S...I completely agree.
