I’m a long time Trek fan who began writing Star Trek fan fiction circa 2005. I’m the author of the ST: Gibraltar series and a member of the United Trek writer’s group, 10 writers sharing a common Trek-verse where our ships, characters, and storylines often converge.
The burdens of self-reflection.
A wedding celebration is cut short by an incursion into Federation space by an old adversary. The starship Reykjavík and her crew are thrust into the line of fire and must unravel the mystery of a most unlikely invasion.
A mission to thwart a local band of raiders becomes something more, creating a diplomatic crisis that may threaten the balance of power in the Alpha Quadrant.
Five years after the events of Infinities Unbound, a portal to the Large Magellanic Cloud has suddenly reappeared. A single starship, the USS Valhalla, is ordered into the distant LMC in search of the missing starship Europa and her crew. Valhalla’s eccentric and politically controversial commanding officer and his eclectic crew have been tasked with discovering the fate of the traitor Sandhurst, as well as that of the Amon and Skorrah species.
The life and times of the El Aurian Pava Lar'ragos.
Donald Sandhurst has become one with the Amon, and in the aftermath of his defection and Ramirez’s assault on Europa, Operation Vanguard threatens to unravel. New leadership arrives in the Delta Quadrant with the goal of shaking up the status quo as waves of refugees threaten to overwhelm the task force’s meager resources. Can Pava Lar’ragos, wounded body and soul, rally Europa’s crew to continue the mission in the captain’s absence?
A cadet cruise reunites a previously close-knit group of officers as they shepherd a class of young Starfleet trainees on a five-week training excursion. A simulated mission suddenly becomes active duty as a real crisis arises, and both teachers and students find themselves caught in a genuine no-win-scenario.
The starship Reykjavík is dispatched to investigate the disappearance of a Starfleet survey ship, uncovering a harrowing mystery with potentially lethal consequences.
Even a skirmish can have lasting effects on a lonely frontier.
Diplomacy with the Klingons can be a delicate dance.
Gibraltar comes to the assistance of a stricken freighter carrying a hunted religious order. Without Starfleet assistance, their young leader could create a diplomatic crisis for the Federation and Cardassia.
The exciting story that continues the Task Force Vanguard saga begun in At The Gates!
As the surviving ships of Task Force Vanguard’s first wave struggle to stem the incoming tide of alien refugees, a foe from Captain Sandhurst’s past returns to make an already agonizing situation immeasurably worse. Conflicted by loyalties both new and old, Sandhurst and the crew of the starship Europa must battle to prevent the nearer reaches of the Delta Quadrant from collapsing into anarchy.
It’s been two years since the end of the Dominion War. The Alpha Quadrant is still reeling in the aftermath of the most destructive interstellar war in over two millennia. The Romulan Star Empire teeters on the brink of economic and social collapse as the Klingons struggle to come to grips with a failing warrior ethos that has left their society riddled with nepotism and corruption. What remains of the Cardassian Union is in shambles with a road to recovery that will be measured in decades.
As the great powers of the quadrant lick their wounds, the second-tier governments vie for position and spark a firestorm of ‘minor’ conflicts that further sap the strength of the beleaguered Federation. The Alshain/Son’a War, the Talarian Incursion, the Benzar Plebiscite Crisis, the Velk Incident, a resurgent Maquis movement and religious terrorism on Bajor… the crises mount as an overwhelmed Starfleet struggles to cope.
Amidst this turmoil, a new shadow takes shape, a potential catastrophe the likes of which has never been seen in the Federation’s history. Keeping the truth of the impending danger from their wartime allies, Starfleet engages in a desperate plan that just might give the UFP the time it needs to meet the rising threat head on, and more importantly, on the Federation’s terms.
Gibraltar is pulled from her duties in occupied Cardassian territory to escort a diplomatic mission to the Gamma Quadrant. When tragedy strikes, Captain Sandhurst finds he and his crew isolated on the far side of the galaxy and faced with the very real possibility of re-igniting hostilities with the Dominion.
However, unknown to Gibraltar, the starship Intrepid is also currently assigned to the Gamma Quadrant on a secretive mission of the utmost delicacy. Captain Aubrey and his crew must endeavor to discover the true nature of the threat that faces both ships, as well as avert a tragedy that could result in the deaths of billions.
This story is a crossover with Galen4's Star Trek: Intrepid.
