Star Trek Expanded Universe

Star Trek: Dark Horizon is a fan fiction series created and written by Michael Gray. The series began in 2002 with the publication of the first story, Forms Change. Dark Horizon centers around Captain Jack McCall and the crew of the Oceana-class USS Chamberlain, and (initially), their mission to explore the Kel-j'na Region.

As of November 2007, the series is half-completed with 14 full-length stories and a handful of shorter tales and drabbles have been published. The second half will advance the story several years, with the interim covered by the Tales of Transition, a collection of short stories written by Gray and various guest authors, including Joseph Manno of Star Trek: Liberty and Cleve Johnson of Star Trek: Providence.
