All-new Star Trek adventures – by the fans for the fans!

Strange New Worlds II is the second volume of stories published from the annual amateur writing contest established by Pocket Books.


From the book jacket
Back by popular demand! Our second anthology featuring original Star Trek, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and Star Trek: Voyager stories written by Star Trek fans, for Star Trek fans!
Our first Strange New Worlds competition drew thousands of submissions and Strange New Worlds II drew even more. From this mountain of astounding stories, these few, written exclusively by brand-new authors, were selected for their originality and style.
These tales rocket across the length and breadth of Federation time and space, from when Captain Kirk explored the galaxy on the first Starship Enterprise through Captain Picard's U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D and Captain Sisko's Deep Space Nine to Captain Janeway's Starship USS Voyager, with many fascinating stops along the way.
Find out what happens in the Star Trek universe when fans – like you – take the helm!

Background information

  • Original title "Renaissance" was changed to "The Hero of My Own Life" when selected as a winner.
  • "Essence" was also changed to "Change of Heart" before publication.
  • The paperback reprint of this collection contained Chapter Six of the serialized novel Starfleet: Year One. Its appearance here was a last-minute change, following delays to the pair of novels originally planned to carry the chapter. Editor John Ordover made an offer to ship out the chapter to anyone angered by the resultant need to repurchase the SNW volumes specifically for Starfleet: Year One.
