Star Trek Original Series Fan Fiction Mailing Lists

What you'll find here are mailing lists, newsgroups and story archives for Star Trek fan fiction.

I've tried to arrange listings in each category in a somewhat logical order, importance/generality/activity level leading the list.

Newsgroups

alt.startrek.creative
alt.startrek.creative.erotica.moderated

These groups are available, in part, as Yahoo!Groups (see below). Both ASC and ASCEM are accessible using Google Groups, although posting to ASCEM via UseNet has become increasingly unreliable. Old posts are available in both the Google and e-Scribe archives. ASC* FAQs (please look over before posting, especially before posting fic -- many TOS mailing lists also use ASC/EM coding for stories).

Star Trek Yahoo Groups Mailing Lists

Notice: All Peja-owned lists are in the process of being moved to squidge.org from Yahoo!Groups.

Some Yahoo groups are restricted to adults only. Such groups are marked [A].

*The Axes of Trek-fic -- most important clearinghouses for all your Trekfic needs

ASCL ASC stories-only group, for people with poor newsfeeds.

ASCEM-S The ASCEM stories-only group. This list is an "announce" type list. The archivist posts stories posted to ASCEM(L) to ASCEM-S, for those who only have time to read the stories. Moderators: ASC* volunteers.

ASCEML The ASCEM mailing list. Stories and discussion. Moderators: ASC* volunteers. Moderation is in place to eliminate spam.

*Useful/General

TrekCreative A list for the discussion and creation of fan fiction, about, and related to Star Trek, and/or other Science Fiction and Fantasy subjects. The descendent of the FIDO echo Star_Trek_Creative, it boasts a long history, is very active, and is home to lots of old school Trekkies.

trekfic A list for episode discussion and Star Trek fanfiction -- no slash, PG-13. I know nothing about this list. Fairly active.

*Grab bag

What do all these terms mean?

"Slash" means fan-fiction about sexual relationships between characters of the same sex (m/m or f/f).
"Femslash" specifically refers to f/f fanfiction.
"Adult" means sexually explicit material.
"K/S" means Kirk/Spock, whereas "K&S" means Kirk and Spock friendship stories. (You can find more character codes in the ASC codes FAQ. I.e. U/R = Uhura/Rand; Mc/Saa = McCoy/Saavik.)

The newsletter is available via email (cheaper) as well as via post.

For Writers

Beta Reader's Index - A list of beta readers available for all series of Star Trek, from G stories to NC-17. Contains very detailed information about each beta's strengths and preferences. Jump to: TOS Betas.

The Muses' Sector - Another group of Star Trek betas. They claim to do TOS, although they don't seem to have any TOS in their archive of betaed stories.

Haelen.org Star Trek Beta List - Numerous listing with fic type, special talents, and preferences outlined.

In general, the best way to find betas is to a join a list devoted to the kind of TOS fiction you like, and ask if anyone would like to beta. Or find an online author whose fiction you like and ask them if they'd like to beta your story.

T'Guess' K/S Linklist also has a lot of links to writers' and erotica writers' resources on the web.

Star Trek Story Archives

Trekiverse -- The official ASC* archive. Formerly located at archive.nu, in true Trek spirit it can be found in three Mirror Universes: Mirror 1, Mirror 2 and Mirror 3 Add "frame.html" to the url for frames or "noframe.html" for no frames. If you are using the ASC* Search function to search the archive, I suggest you choose the no frames version.

Google Groups Archive - Search all the posts (including stories) since time of the beginning in ASC, ASCEM and the defunct groups ASCE and ASFS.

ASCEML on eScribe - Searchable and user-friendly.

DMOZ - Find lots of Original Series stories via the links on Adult Star Trek, Adult TOS, Adult TOS Authors, Gen Star Trek Fiction, Gen TOS Fiction.

COCO_SSD archive - includes the KFF and numerious Chekov stories, among other things. primarily slash. Archivist: Karmen Ghia

Spock and Christine Fan Fiction Page - The online archive of SpockandChristine list. I find it kind of ironic that the "Spock and Christine" picture up top is cropped to remove Kirk -- it's always about Kirk! -- from the picture. Kirk, confused because of amnesia, and flat on his back having just been stoned, is the reason for their shared concern.

Femme Fuh-q Fest - an ever-growing archive of Femme Fuh-q Fest stories -- all f/f, all Trek series. Great variety. Archivist: T'Lin
