It’s time to polish up your fan fiction scripts! The Simon and Schuster Star Trek page has a note that says:

For a decade starting in 1997 Pocket Books held an annual contest for Star Trek fan fiction. Cash prizes were awarded and several of the participants went on to publish full length Star Trek novels. The result was 10 excellent volumes of short stories written by fans for fans.
I loved the originality and creativity of these stories. Some of the stories try to fill in the gaps while others expand on characters we only see once. Some of them are just plain incredible science fiction.
Check out the first 10 volumes below and get your script ready for the next contest. I know I will!
