Well,I did ask to begin with didn't I ? Heh.
Anyways,as Spock and Data themelves would say..Fascinating. Thanks a load for the info on that info Mark,it was well appreciated. I am aware of that there was the existence of such star trek fanzines(I need to look into them sometime.)and I myself did read the story Mind Sifter in a copy of ST the new voyages,good story that it was.
I had no idea that there was such a fanfiction concept to begin with,now I can see why it was parodied on what I found.
That makes sense when you think about it.
Btw,i'm a pretty old fan myself of Trek,in case you're wondering. Years since I was a kid,just viewed trek more in tv than actual publications back then.
