    We've had a couple of instances recently of people not realising that they shouldn't post story ideas in this forum, so here's a reminder :)


    Because we have professional Trek authors reading and posting in this forum (and because we'd like them to stay), we cannot have story ideas/speculation posted in this forum. Unsolicited story ideas are a legal minefield for authors because of the risk of someone suing them saying "you stole my idea". It doesn't matter if you say 'steal away', we can't have any story ideas here.


    There is a fan fiction forum down in the Star Trek Fandom section of the BBS which is the perfect place for posting and discussing story ideas that you have. You could even try writing them yourself :)

    UPDATE: 13th June 2014:

    This is a quote from Christopher which gives a good example from the writer's point of view of what moves something into story idea territory:


    Thank you for your time - enjoy discussing Trek Lit :techman:

    Added to the original post, Christopher's description of what crosses the border into story idea that he posted in the Malcolm Reed thread.
