Fans of science fiction and of Star Trek are legion. Huge numbers of these attend their conventions attired in highly creative costumes that identify them as Trekkers and arouse a spirit of community. Many are affiliated with fan clubs whose members buy or create such attire to be worn at conventions and public events. They come from all walks of life and show up extravagantly costumed not only at science-fiction venues but also at charity fund-raisers and public-service meetings. Klingons and Federation members may appear in the actual world of strip malls and shopping centers as they stage food-fight wars in behalf of the homeless. They surface anywhere they can make a statement about the positive ideals they feel are fostered in the Star Trek universe. Costumers may portray figures from the popular TV show and films as well as invent characters in the tradition of Star Trek. No matter where they may be geographically, their zeal for the show and its values bond them into a community. They must toe a thin line between maintaining the tradition of authentic uniforms and the wish to create costumes that express personal aesthetics and innovation. Many Trekkers on occasion demonstrate extreme creativity in their costume art. Nevertheless, to meet the approval of their peers, it must be plausible and appropriate. Trekkers find a sense of friendship, family, and high ideals within fandom. A gamut of reasons can be listed for why Trekkers costume themselves. For some it is a public way of demonstrating affection for Gene Roddenberry's creation. For some dressing as a Klingon expresses empowerment for women. For others it is escapism or pure fun. Such alien garb and motivationsfor wearing it are explored here in this fascinating book that connects expressions of contemporary folk art, folklore, and popular culture.

The U.S.S. Enterprise, under the command of Lieutenant Hikaru Sulu, is returning from a mission to deliver medical supplies to Deep Space Station C-15, one of Starfleet’s most distant installations. All is routine until the Enterprise comes within a light-year of the planet Mu Arigulon, when the ship is suddenly thrown from warp and suffers a momentary power cut, having run aground on a spatial distortion not revealed in previous scans of the system. When the pride of Starfleet hits another, much worse distortion, Dr. Leonard McCoy has his hands full caring for officers who have suddenly fallen into comas for no apparent reason. The Enterprise medical team soon discovers that the dying officers are espers—humans with a rare and abnormal level of telepathic and psychic ability. With no choice but to link to the officers’ minds in order to come to their aid, McCoy is plunged into a nightmarish dream-world . . . with the end result being nothing short of the possible destruction of the Enterprise and all aboard her. . . .
