No offense meant to anyone. But, here is a list of my personal pet peeves when reading "Star Trek" fanfiction: Turning a regular character into a villain because they're a threat to your OTP. ("In this story, Will Riker falls in love with Beverly Crusher LIKE HE SHOULD OF, and Deanna Troi is EVUL and tries to steal Riker for her own shallow, evil purposes but then DIES!!") People thinking that the only two women in Chakotay's Maquis crew were B'Elanna and whatever female Maquis they happen to remember. Really, people. (Jeri Taylor even did this in "Pathways.") Entire series re-writes with the only change being the addition of the captain's teenage kid (Why? Why do people do this? WHYYYY?) Hey guys, wanna meet a brand, new character living in the "Star Trek" universe, that I created? Want to see your favorite sci-fi show from a new, fresh perspective? Well here is the saga of my character, Ensign Generica Blandmuffin! She's an average, 20-year-old, Human from Earth (specifically, Wisconsin, USA), from an average family, with an average body-type, with an average, somewhat shy personality! Her main conflict throughout the story is that she might have a crush on that one hot character who never did much. (Isn't it great to be able to escape into a sci-fi word, and forget about your bland, realistic life now and then?) Your turn. List the things that annoy you in "Star Trek" fan fiction. The only rule is, it has to be an actually writing gimmick, habit or story-type you dislike. This is not just an excuse for character or "ship" bashing. ("My peeve is any fanfic that pairs Kirk with Yeoman Rand, because Kirk/Rand makes me PUKE and Rand is a slutty Mary Sue who should DYE!!!!!3!") Actual writing related things that annoy you, in "Star Trek" fanfiction. Go.
