Also known as the Alt.Startrek.Creative newsgroup, which is an open/public depository for Star Trek fan fiction
spanning all of the series and some of the books. Vast amounts of (often) very expertly-written stories are found/generated in this newsgroup
. If you are a Star Trek fan
and like reading stories, I highly suggest you check out this newsgroup- my suggestion turns into an invitation if you're interested in sharing your fanfic
as well. Within the group you will find "beta
readers", editors, fact-finders, debates, cross-over stories (from other universes- i.e., I just got an award for a Star Trek TNG
's Lazarus Long
As well, there are annual voting ceremonies where the writers AND the readers get to vote on Best Story (all series), Best Comedy, Best Incomplete Story, Best Author, Best New Author and so on. It is a tight community with a literal universe of ideas, adventures and dreams.
