* Creator/StephenHawking is a big ''Franchise/StarTrek'' fan, and requested to sit in the captain's chair during his guest spot on ''The Next Generation''. He also said of the warp core while touring the engineering set, "I'm working on that." He had a guest appearance [[AsHimself portraying himself]] in a scene where Data plays poker while conversing with three great physicists on the holodeck (the others being actors portraying Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein). Making him the only person to "play" themselves in ''Star Trek''.
** Hawking also loves ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' and named ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' "the best show on TV ever." Naturally, he also was special guest voice in both series.
*** But he has also stated that his favorite SF franchise of all is ''Series/RedDwarf''.

* Creator/RoosterTeeth's entire raison d'etre is that they're geeky folks who openly love video games and pop culture. After all, ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' started as a ''Videogame/{{Halo}}'' fan series and snowballed from there.

* While we're on the subject of bloggers, at least half The Atlantic's bloggers right now are geeks, self-confessed or otherwise. The most blatant example is Creator/TaNehisiCoates, who rolls with the [[WorldOfWarcraft Horde,]] enough to write about it for Time. Business Editor Megan [=McArdle=] is also a gamer, though to what extent is unknown (She loves Civ, at least). Chief blogger Andrew Sullivan, being English-born, is an obvious Series/DoctorWho and Creator/MontyPython fan. Josh Green is limited to music geekery, enough to put up a fight with a music website. The rest (Ambinder, Fallows, Goldberg, and Crooks) remain uncertain (unless you count Fallows's beer fanaticism as geekery).
