Re: Tips for writing a great Star Trek fanfiction story or series.

Do your research. But, that having been said, don't allow canon to handcuff you. Just because we never saw McCoy play squash doesn't mean he never has. At the same time, don't turn characters flawless. People aren't, so characters shouldn't be. They should fail. They should forget. They should sometimes be mean, or arbitrary, or impatient.
