So, it seems a bit inaccurate to say that New Voyages were any kind of fan-centric reaction against the low quality of Trek novels by "slumming" SF pros.
Which is why I didn't say anything of the kind. My point was that at the time, Trek fan fiction would've been considered more worthy of professional publication than it would be today, because at the time, there wasn't a lot of competition. Arguably the fanfiction of the time represented the more direct ancestor of the tradition of professional Trek fiction that we know today, and TNV was the first step in the evolutionary process from fanfic to modern Trek Lit.
