The Strange New Worlds anthologies of Star Trek short stories have become a regular event. They feature the winning entries in a competition open to non-professional writers (resident in the US and Canada only, unfortunately), and some of these stories are very good indeed. Most are centred around a single character, often a guest star from one of the shows, and many take a slantwise view of the Star Trek universe. For example, there is a piece about how the Q interfere in the life of one of Will Riker's ancestors, and another from the viewpoint of one of the waiting relatives of a "Voyager" crew member. We read Lieutenant Hawk's version of his fatal encounter with the Borg on the hull of the "Enterprise" in the film "First Contact", and another excellent story follows Nog through his Kobayashi Maru test at Starfleet Academy. Others focus on the regular cast--the first prize-winner takes Uhura through the Guardian of Forever and back to Elizabethan London in search of a missing historian, while the second prize went to a very nicely-written piece about Ezri Tigan's confusion immediately after her joining with the Dax symbiont. Overall, this is a very good collection of character-centred stories that successfully capture the feel of all four Star Trek series. --Elizabeth Sourbut --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
From the Back Cover
Back by popular demand -- again! Our third anthology featuring original Star Trek "RM", Star Trek: The Next Generation "RM", Star Trek: Deep Space Nine "RM", and Star Trek: Voyage "RM" stories written by Star Trek fans, for Star Trek fans!
Each Strange New Worlds competition draws a greater response than the last. The final selections gathered here were chosen from an overwhelming number of entries by virtue of their originality and style. With wit, compassion, and an affection for all things Star Trek, these brand-new authors take us where Star Trek has never gone before.
Their tales rocket across the length and breadth of Federation time and space, from when Captain Kirk explored the galaxy on the first Starship Enterprise "TM", through Captain Picard's U.S.S. Enterprise "TM" 1701-D and Captain Sisko's Deep Space Nine "TM", to Captain Janeway's Starship Voyager "TM", with many more fascinating stops along the way.
Find out what happens in the Star Trek universe when fans -- like you -- take the helm! --This text refers to the Paperback edition.See all Product description

I have noticed that many Sci-Fi has died off. All Star Treks, Star Wars, Babylon 5, & Farscape have all been replaces with mindless Vampire like books & shows.
So enjoy it while you can still get it.
