Publisher's description[]

Back by popular demand! Our second anthology featuring original Star Trek®, Star Trek: The Next Generation®, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine®, and Star Trek: Voyager® stories written by Star Trek fans, for Star Trek fans!
Our first Strange New Worlds competition drew thousands of submissions and Strange New Worlds II drew even more. From this mountain of astounding stories, these few, written exclusively by brand-new authors, were selected for their originality and style.
These tales rocket across the length and breadth of Federation time and space, from when Captain Kirk explored the galaxy on the first Starship Enterprise™, through Captain Picard's U.S.S. Enterprise™ NCC-1701-D and Captain Sisko's Deep Space Nine™, to Captain Janeway's Starship U.S.S. Voyager™, with many fascinating stops along the way.
Find out what happens in the Star Trek universe when fans—like you—take the helm!

  • The short stories "The Hero of My Own Life" and "Change of Heart" had different titles ("Renaissance" and "Essence," respectively) which were changed between being selected for publication and their appearance in this collection.
  • The mass market paperback reprint of this volume included Chapter Six of the serialised novel Starfleet: Year One by Michael Jan Friedman, a last-minute change following delays to the novels originally planned to carry that chapter. Editor John J. Ordover offered to mail out the chapter to anyone angered by the need to repurchase a Strange New Worlds volume specifically for it.
