Free Star Trek by RJ

The fittest coverLast winter I wrote a Star Trek Original Series short story in response to an open call / contest for an authorized Star Trek anthology. The story was written with that universe in mind, and, in my opinion, pretty much needs to stay Star Trek to be told. Although the story was rejected, I still want to share it–as Star Trek. And so, I’m exercising  the only legal option available to me and offering it as a free read for anyone who wants to check it out. I’ve posted the content on Fanfiction dot com. Giving my work away is contrary to what I want to be doing at this stage of my writing career, but it’s a story I worked hard on and one that I’m proud of. So check it out when you have about an hour to spare.

“The Fittest” features Lt. Uhura in a first contact scenario with a primitive civilization where her decisions may determine the fate of an entire world. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
