    Trekkies Defend Woman Abused In Star Trek Costume On Facebook

    A woman attended a Star Trek Convention in costume and Facebook's initial wave of derision was replaced by something much more welcome.

    This woman entered the costume contest at the Las Vegas 2014 Star Trek convention. She is rocking a spectacular outfit as Dr. Miranda Jones from the 1968 episode Is There In Truth No Beauty? The offical Star Trek Facebook page shared the photo.

    Here's how the character appeared in the original episode as played by Diana Muldaur.

    Initial comments were unfortunately not supportive, ignored the effort she had put into the costume and concentrated on the women's figure. That is until someone posted it on the Star Trek Reddit and the Trekkies came out in force.

    Commenters rallied to defend the cosplayer against jibes.

    One sought to use the content of the episode against her, thus spectacularly missing the point of the story altogether, but, he too, was taken to task.

    And woe betide those who would insult her and get their Star Trek wrong...

    It's refreshing to see that the majority of fans of a TV Show that espouses a belief in equality and celebrates achievement, have a belief in equality and celebrate achievement. As Dr. Miranda Jones said in 1968 (or 2268 depending on your point of view) "the glory of creation is in its infinite diversity", or to put it another way as Wil Wheaton, the actor who played Star Trek: The Next Generation's Wesley Crusher, would say "don't be a dick."
