Authors and Websites

General Fics

Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.

Lost in the Woods by Ardwolf.

  • Recommended by SAMAS
  • Synopsis: Shortly after introducing Picard to the Borg, Q has enough of his attitude and decides to test his compassion by sending him to a universe where compassion is in short supply: The Firefly 'Verse.

Star Trek: Specter of the Past by tnpir4002

  • Recommended by tnpir4002
  • Synopsis: A leading Starfleet scientist steals classified secrets before apparently dying during an escape attempt; but when he returns five years later, he's meaner and more dangerous than ever, and it falls to his oldest friend to decipher his plan and stop him before it's too late. (Set in the latter TNG era but with a different cast)

The Finest In The Fleet by DataLady91

  • Recommended by Across The Stars
  • Synopsis: A tribute poem to the crew of the Enterprise-D. She will always be "the finest ship in the fleet."
  • Comments: Normally I'm leery of poems of any sort, but I took a chance on this one. It's actually pretty darned good. A must-read for any TNG fan.

Shipping Fics

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.

Rollercoaster by Mistress Scribbles (AU, with some torture)

  • Recommended by Blossom Morphine
  • Pairing(s): Data/Yar
  • Synopsis: In which Tasha never had the bridge dropped on her, and her relationship with Data throughout the series. "Fate conspired differently. Death passed Tasha by. Given the time to evolve, a relationship she'd dismissed as a one night stand became the most complicated love affair she'd know. Series of stories spanning the show & movies."

Tough to categorize.

TNG Season 8, a parodic Twitter feed

  • Recommended by Mag Flare
  • Synopsis: Based on the premise that an entire (super-long) eighth season of TNG was scripted but never aired, this Twitter feed summarizes the plots of dozens of never-before-seen episodes.
  • Comments: Hilarious and tone-perfect. Each character's traits are exaggerated for comedic effect, but every 140-character block manages to capture essential truths about TNG. Example:

"A planet of suspicious docents abduct Riker for their museum of amazing men. Geordi and Data are too excited to sleep at their sleepover."
