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

Avoid characters that are related somehow to an established on-screen/treklit character unless we've already heard of them.

Don't have the characters quoting themselves from episodes and movies.

Avoid matching up a character's ethnicity to the name of the ship he/she commands (i.e. having Chekov command USS Potemkin just because it has a russian name).

Keep hybrid characters to a minimum. Vulcan/humans, bajoran/cardassians, Borg/Magnavox, whatever. These types of folk should be rare.
