Suzie Beckner, a rural retail worker, has a thing for science fiction, and one sci-fi character in particular – lieutenant colonel John Sheppard from Stargate: Atlantis, portrayed by Joe Flanigan. Beckner’s fandom extends all the way to the creation of erotic fan fiction featuring the intrepid space traveler. When an opportunity arises to meet Sheppard/Flanigan at a major comic and science fiction convention, she undertakes a journey that reveals to her the size and scope of fandom, and in seeing and meeting other proud female sci-fi fans, she finds a community to call her own.
