Re: What do you look for in a fan fic?
I generally like original fanfic (more flexibility for an all new cast of characters and different ships), set in any era is fine with me. Length doesn't bother me, however long it takes to tell a good story is as long as it needs to be.
A story should be a blend of actions and dialogue, both of which are needed to tell stories, it really depends on the mission the ship and crew are on. As for romance, sometimes it's planned and other times it just comes along naturally as you write character interaction.
