From Quadrant to Quadrant and Person to Person 1

It’s been a labor of love as well as a bit of lust but the Trek United Adult Trek Anthology is finally out! Travel with us, From Quadrant to Quadrant and Person to Person, and prepare to be seduced by Star Trek.
Adult Trek Anthology Cover
Click on the cover above to browse or download this free pdf anthology of Star Trek fan fiction. With 315 pages of content, punctuated with beautiful sketches and gorgeous screen captures, not to mention a breathtaking photo manipulated cover, the Anthology is a feast for the eyes and can put you, the reader, right into the action. Let’s look at the individual contributions.



The Alabax 9 Affair - Madison Bruffy's newest contribution asks a question about the Prime Directive. Does it cover a, shall we say, delicate diplomatic situation? Or has Captain James T. Kirk really overstepped his bounds this time?

Last Full Measure - For Lil Black Dog, when does duty end? In the face of impossible adversity, what more can a First Officer do, but show the last full measure of his devotion to his captain?

You Make Me Want to Scream - Who's got a secret powerhouse lover at home? jespah reminds us that sometimes our expectations are unfounded.

One Night on Terok Nor - Rush Limborg follows Garak as he and Ezri Dax work through some difficult memories and, along the way, a state of grace is achieved.

What Lies Within Lies Between - For Jonathan Archer and Trip Tucker, lost memory means that something else bubbles to the surface. How can T'Pol make sense of it all? Pauline Mac explores this fascinating dynamic.

D'Storlin - When a hybrid child is pushed to the limit, a careless mistake, made in a fit of rage, changes his and his tormentor's lives forever. Jespah brings the ugliness of bullying to the Trek universe.

A Drone's New Life - When 7 of 9 and the rest of the crew of Voyager make it to Earth, life changes. And, for her, as writer Laura McBride shows, those changes are for the better.

Ripples - What if the events of Amok Time didn't go the way we all know they did? Lil Black Dog returns with an exploration of how things would unfold if Dr. McCoy had not been there.

Milk - Scotty's got a date. And, according to Jespah, it's going really, really well.

Anvil of the Gods - Jean-Luc Picard makes the Dominion War come alive as a Vorta learns what some true believers do – that sometimes heroes have feet of clay.

Sorrow, Shared - In the E2 universe, a widowed T'Pol finds herself with a visitor who shares her grief. Honeybee gives readers something to think about.


Artwork - Fantastic artwork graces the Anthology. Bluetiger has captured the true essence of characters, from T'Pol to Scotty. Madison has added a number of promotional materials which have helped to round out this issue and create even more visual appeal. And then there's the cover. ENTAllat's lovely photo manipulated cover brings together disparate elements and conveys the overall theme of the Anthology.

Feedback

Looking to the Future

Will we do it again? I don't know. A lot of that will depend upon the reception that this, the first edition, garners. But if we do, would you like to write for us? Take a look at our selection criteria. If you'd like to try for a spot – and inclusion is not guaranteed – follow our submission guide. Plus I can be reached here if you have any questions. Onward, to the stars, and the stars in your eyes, from quadrant to quadrant, and person to person!

PD Smith-Tales of the Fleet 02 : The Caves of Duality


PD Smith's second graphic novel is another step in his development, both as an author and as an artist. It is a love story with a final twist suggested by Paul's co-writer, his youngest daughter. Artistically, the comic was all about learning depth of field and more dramatic camera angles done 10 months after the beginning of the first issue over a two months period. The issue has been voluntarily rated PG-13 because of some modestly posed nudity.
