Star Trek Expanded Universe

Inspired in part by the success of a long-running series of audio adventures produced by Big Finish Productions in the United Kingdom based upon Doctor Who, some similar audio series based upon characters and situations from Star Trek have been launched. Unlike Doctor Who productions, which are produced under license by the BBC (rights holders of the Doctor Who property), these Star Trek audio series are not similarly licensed by Paramount. It is worth noting, however, that the Doctor Who audios were not initially licensed by the BBC, although this was when they were produced on an amateur rather than a professional basis, as has been the case since 1999.


In 2410, Starfleet Command assigns three advanced vessels to traverse the expanse to the Perseus Arm of the Milky Way Galaxy. The series focuses on four junior officers newly-assigned to one of the ships, the USS Witch of Endor. 18 episodes were released in 2020.
This series, a spin-off from The Section 31 Files is a crossover venture into the Star Wars universe. The series exists in two incarnations - the first, a stand-alone episode in which two characters found themselves in the Star Wars universe, while the second was an official episode of The Section 31 Files, in which the starship Nosferatu travels to the Star Wars universe via a dimensional rift. While more entries in the series are planned, no definite production plans have yet been announced.

Star Trek: Excelsior
billed as "the first fan production based closely on the events of a roleplaying game" (though this distinction may well belong to Defiant), Excelsior's format is unremarkable: a ship and crew explore the distant reaches of the Delta Quadrant. However, the show is notable for its extremely long and intricate multi-part stories, which typically span eight to twelve months and four or five forty-five minute episodes.
Star Trek: Lost Universe
Created by Jeff Lincoln and produced by StarForce Media, "Star Trek: Lost Universe" debuted on SoundCloud in early 2015. The Dominion War is over, the Reman threat to destroy the United Federation of Planets has been foiled, and an uneasy peace between the Romulan Star Empire and the Federation is in place. The next chapter in Federation History begins. The USS Jamestown, an experimental, Nebula Class vessel finds itself trapped in an alternate reality where the Romulan Star Empire has conquered nearly the entire Alpha Quadrant. Without allies and without a place to call home, the Jamestown begins a one-ship-rebellion against the Romulan Star Empire in an attempt to restore what was once a shining light in the Alpha Quadrant. Episodes can be found on both SoundCloud and YouTube.
Star Trek: Outpost
Star Trek: Outpost is an audio drama series by Giant Gnome Productions. The show's opening lines set the stage: "In the darkest reaches of the United Federation of Planets, an isolated station stands sentinel over a neglected frontier. Commissioned long ago with high hopes, its promise is now all but forgotten; a lonely outpost serving as the gateway to the vast expanse beyond, where discovery… and adventure… await." With its premiere in April 2009, Star Trek: Outpost focuses on the adventures of the crew of Deep Space 3 and the USS Chimera, a once proud, now transformed Oberth-class starship.
