    This is an excellent website. I remember about 8 years ago I was part of a group online that wrote Star Trek stories together but totally forgot what the website was called. It something that I'd love to get back into so if anyone has any advice, it would be very much appreciated!

    Love you for this thread! Bookmarked.

    Anyway, the ones I tend to turn to include:

    Memory Alpha, for all things canon: http://memory-alpha.wikia.com/wiki/Portal:Main
    Memory Beta: Refers to information from "non-canon" but still published sources, like the novels and video games and such. I usually ignore these when writing fanfiction, but will use elements from them, in regards to certain species' biology or history. http://memory-beta.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page
    Ex Astris Scientia: This magnificent nerd basically chronicles everything from onscreen canon that can be chronicled, from Klingon hybrids to Starship designs to exactly how many American humans appear in the "diverse" world of Starfleet. http://www.ex-astris-scientia.org
    Chrissie's Transcripts Site: Online postings of original episode scripts from a variety of "Star Trek" series and other sci-fi shows. This is GREAT if you're trying to write a story that overlaps with or refers to a specific canon scene. http://www.chakoteya.net/StarTrek/index.html
    Trek Core: Screencaps for every scene from every episode of every series. Very useful if you want to recapture the appearance of a scene, person or whatever, and don't have a video clip on hand.
