Memory Beta, non-canon Star Trek Wiki

Introduction (blurb)

From 1998 to 2000, Amazing Stories, the world's oldest science fiction magazine, presented a series of original Star Trek stories written by a number of bestselling authors. Now these little-seen Star Trek adventures have been collected together for the first time, along with brand new tales written expressly for this volume!

Among the highlights:

Spock comes to terms with the death of his father in a touching tale penned by A.C. Crispin, bestselling author of Sarek.

Counselor Deanna Troi risks everything to aid the evacuation of an endangered planet.

Seven of Nine learns a lesson in humanity when the Starship Voyager takes on some unusual alien visitors.

Beverly Crusher discovers that holographic doctors take some getting used to, especially during a medical emergency.

Plus, Captain Proton, Defender of the Earth, must face the awesome menace of... the Space Vortex of Doom!

Proving that amazing things sometimes come in small packages, these and other slices of the vast Star Trek universe provide a replicator's worth of treats for Trekkers everywhere!


The Next Generation



  • The blurb reference to "brand new tales written expressly for this volume" is incorrect; John J. Ordover's attempts to secure some stories that were originally commissioned by the magazine, but still unpublished, were unsuccessful, but covers had already been approved.
  • "On the Scent of Trouble" includes characters named for Keith R.A. DeCandido and John Ordover.
