Is "tuppertrek" a German word? Curious... Great page by the way, Doro. Mrs. Potato Head 23:43, 21 December 2009 (UTC)

Thanks! :) I think it's a German term or at least the only people I know who use it are German fanfic authors. The name maybe refers to Tupperware and Tupperware parties because that is seen as such a domestic and over the top feminine activity. It's also possible that it has something to do with the Bullyparade (and later the movie version (T)Raumschiff Surprise – Periode 1), a comedy show that featured among other things Star Trek parodies with exactly this kind of characterization.--Doro 23:56, 21 December 2009 (UTC)
