Fan fiction legal phrasing question

I have a question for folks who distribute their stories/scripts/video productions, and want to make sure they're legally protected while also protecting the brands they're writing about (in this case, Star Trek):

What is the best, most succinct, small-print legal message you use on the bottom of your pages or the credits of your productions to protect yourself legally? You know the message I mean - the one that includes, "STAR TREK and its related trademarks are 2013 CBS STUDIOS..." I'm looking for language that makes it clear that no profit is intended from the distribution of the work, no offense is intended to the trademark, and no one else is permitted to do the same with this work.

My thanks in advance.
