A New Series!
Fresh from the pages of history, TFF has been given the opportunity to publish some stories that have been collecting dust for nearly 20 years, waiting for light to play over their fascinating pages!
Introducing the Chameleon Files, a collection of novellas surrounding a group of characters called upon to protect the Federation from it's fiercest foes, using technology they had sworn not to use!
Gary Pirtle, Dana Reynolds and the late Ben Steed worked on this series back in the 90's and, with a little tweaking, they have been brought to you through the wonder of the digital media. I hope you enjoy the first two pieces, Project Chameleon and Crisis on Detente II, as much as I did. You can find them here.
Star Trek Fan Fiction Film Rules Introduced
The question has to be asked: who owns Star Trek? The fans, who have kept the dream alive for 50 years - 48 years longer than the network originally intended, or Paramount/CBS? The former see the genre as a medium for telling great stories with dramatic and moral messages. The latter - well, the term cash-cow seems inflammatory. I've looked over the new rules for Star Trek Fan Fiction Films published on the official startrek.com site and they're seriously limiting. (You can read them here). It will practically kill off Star Trek Continues in its present form and Star Trek New Voyages (if the rumours if it's demise are not true). We won't see another Star Trek Horizon (more's the pity) and Axanar is dead in the water.
RIP quality Star Trek film fiction. Even Chris Pine, the new Captain Kirk, knows that intelligent Star Trek film is dead (read here).
Where does it leave those of us who want to see more than bigger explosions and another wreck of the Starship Enterprise? I don't know. I just want to know: when was it no longer important for man to boldly go where no man has gone before?
As an author, I can't help but wonder, when will they be coming after us?

As Janet Kirk proves herself worthy of Captaining the S.C. Enterprise she finds foes in unexpected places. In a world where it's literally kill-or-be-killed Janet will have to use all her wiles to keep her ship.... and her life!

New Author and a New Novel!
TFF wants to give a warm welcome to WCS Marsh who has brought us his labour of love: Yesterday's Enterprise: One Little Ship. It chronicles the story of the Enterprise-C in her final days before her fateful mission to Narendra III. An excellent book and a must read! You can find it here.
New Novel Series!

Star Trek Continues has thoughtfully revived his character, and the Croppers have shown us what became of him after the Enterprise's five year mission.
