Being a Star Trek fan means having to remember a lot of trivia. For one thing, you have to decide what you call yourself, since followers of the show have been called Trekologists, Treksters, Trekkies, and Trekkers, with much debate going on with regards to the latter two, which some still find offensive and consider to mean different things. Moving swiftly away from that can of worms/air vent of tribbles, Star Trek: The Original Series as it's come to be known remains one of the most successful, beloved and popular science fiction properties on the planet. It began as a humble series of three seasons, cancelled before it got a chance to get its hooks in. It has since blossomed into the biggest sci-fi franchise in history, earning a cult following in re-runs which lead to four more separate TV series, movies which recently got rebooted and are box office smashes, not to mention countless video games, books, comics, and other spin-off materials. There's a lot out there for a Trekkie sorry Trekker wait, or is it Trekkie? to get their heads around, and no mind meld has worked between a human and a television franchise. You can't possibly know everything. Which is why even the most ardent fan may be unaware of these twenty mind-blowing facts you never knew about Star Trek.
