Welcome to the
TrekCreative Mailing List Home Page
The TrekCreative Mailing List is the direct descendant of the FIDO echo
Star_Trek_Creative. Those interested in the discussion of Star Trek
with a bent towards writing are encouraged to join the mailing list.
You don't have to be a writer, anyone can join in.
Within the discussions can range from the best way to portray a
character, current politics and how that relates to the presentation of
the galaxy of the 24th century, to what are the social conditions in
the various regions of the galaxy of Star Trek. The tone will move from
lighthearted to serious and back
Members of the list also post stories or story parts as well as other
creative work for your enjoyment and critique. No one is pushed into
more criticism than they are willing to take. Ask people to be gentle,
and they will.

to be listed, as well as links to their websites if they have them.
Stahl: Webmaster and current
the Trek Creative Mailing List.
Garry is the creator and
main author of the Epiphany Trek setting. His website The
Phoenix Inn contains evidence of
his main passions, Star
Trek/science fiction, role-playing, and Amiga computers. He describes
himself as "A first generation Star Trek fan and role-player. I have
been writing fan fiction in the Star Trek Universe since 1997. It has
attracted, against all odds, a small but ardent audience that keeps my
ego up high enough that I keep writing it. I thank all of them." He
also builds models in the Star Trek and fantasy genre.
than this he lives in Dearborn Michigan with his wonderful Wife Sue
(Who also writes), his Son Matthew, cats Zackery, Flower, Midnight, and his King Python Perclies. The
house is overstuffed with books, models, music, horses, and gaming

P. Hailey: Jay lives in Spokane
physically. Somewhere in Deep Space mentally. He is the compiler and
writer of the Star Trek -- Outwardly Mobile setting.
Jay is an inveterate
trekkie, role-playing game hobbyist, and cat-person. Jay has been
inventing this for Trek role playing and then writing stories about
them since 1983, with a long break between 1987 and 1994.
Jay lives with Sandra Hedlund and three cats, Angel, Teddy-Bear, and
Jay is currently celebrating his continuing marriage to Sandi Hedlund,
the twelfth year of writing Star

anything else he can think of to celebrate.

Oostrom: Steve currently
resides in Oshawa, Ontario, and he has been writing Star Trek-based fan
fiction since the late seventies, when he watched the original series
as an after-school activity and decided, "I can write stories like that
too." Instead of further adventures of Kirk and crew, he created his
own ship and crew, and his own alien races, especially the Odonans.
Stories and even novels followed, as he created his own particular view
of the Star Trek
universe. Steve has a number of other interests, which currently
include computer baseball, cartography and linguistics (these change
regularly). With the last of those, he has created a number of
artifical constructed languages, including Allemonian and Odonien.
Steve is currently single, working as a postal clerk when his mind is
not fully preoccupied by all of his other activities. Unlike some
others, he lives with only one cat, Kitscha.

van Houten: Kevin is, without
doubt, the 'least serious' of the contributors to Trek Creative. Kevin
has no story-arcs to his credit, does not model, owns very little
Trek-related material and has been to exactly one convention. (At which
by his report he had a great time) Kevin's small talent tends toward
the 'poetical' end of the creative spectrum and he is particularly fond
of producing song parodies and filksongs.
Kevin's alter ego, Qe'van, is one of the few remaining members of the
Klingon "Bard" caste, while Kevin is a mundane husband, father,
grandfather and computer consultant living in one of the ubiquitious
suburbs of Dallas. Qe'van lives in an alternate-reality Deep Space Nine
and is a former Poet Laureate of Qo'noS.

Gray: In his current incarnation
as a human, Michael exists in the State of Illinois on planet Earth
where, when he can pilfer enough time from daily life, writes Star
Trek: Dark Horizon and creates Trek related graphics such as photo
manipulations and space scenes. After having written numerous parodies
of both Star Trek and Star Wars and having done graphics for other Trek
sites, Michael finally decided to try his limber hand at his own Trek
other interests include physics, the comparative study of religions,
music, film, psychology, history, being a husband and father, and
co-existing in the same location with the most timid cat in the
universe and the most evil cat in the universe.

in Exton, Pennsylvania, Allyn is one of TrekCreative's less active
participants. Two things should be noted, right off the bat: Allyn
doesn't often write Star Trek
fanfic, and Allyn doesn't often read Star
Trek fanfic. Why, then, does he
participate on a listserv devoted to the subject of Star
Trek as applied in fanfic?
Because Allyn is, at core, a Star
Trek fan, knowledgeable in his
own way, with strong views of how the Star
universe works, both as a "playground of the mind" and as a "reality
one step removed from our own."
Among Allyn's particular interests are the Star
Trek novels; you'll find him an
active participant on the Psi
Trek Books BBS.
Allyn also manages Alternity,
a mailing list devoted to discussing the development of history in the Star
Trek universe through an
examination of counterfactuals based upon Star
Trek's future history. One such
speculation on Star Trekhistory, The
Kzin Question, attempts to
explain how the Kzin, as seen in the Animated
Series, can coexist with the
universe as seen in Star

Merk was born in East L.A. to
his considerable surprise, so when his parents moved away to the house
they would live in for the next twelve years, he cleverly stowed away
in the trunk of their car. Brought up in West Los Angeles and educated
in Catholic schools, he took to outer space as a starship captain in an
attempt to escape this tragic reality. Inexplicably, he eventually
graduated from high school. Then, ignoring angry mobs of protestors, he
infiltrated Cal State Fullerton, from which he almost graduated.
Starting at age 16, he began to writing adventure stories, computer
games, and AD&D modules, and one or two of them are almost
finished. Upon discovering the Internet, he began designing web pages,
and one or two of those are almost finished.
As he grows older, he shows no signs of slacking off. He remains as
youthful and as lovable as ever, and grows more ruggedly handsome with
each passing year. You can be sure that this is true, since he has
written this little resume himself, and his unwavering devotion to
absolute truth is notorious. And for once, he actually finished what he

In the darkness beyond the Briar Patch, a monstrous evil lurks just out

Nathan Cross and the former pilots of Banshee Squadron when eerily

C Jones II: James, a Star Trek
Fan of over twenty years, currently lives in sunny Southern California.
His passions are writing fiction (Sci-fi. Alternate History,
Action/Adventure and Romance), running a part-time Internet Radio
Station, reading, loving his cat, Bovi Stock, and just plain enjoying
life. He served many years in the US Army and Army Reserve (with
several Honorable discharges and decorations) and though separated from
military life he still considers himself a Warrior and Soldier. He
currently is an X-Ray technician, a victim of Big Business outsourcing,
and a year round student. He holds a B.S. degree in Information
