Star Trek: Distant Shores is a fan fiction written in prose format set in the 25th century focusing on the missions of the USS Ibn Battuta. It currently appears to be inactive with only a very brief introductory scene completed. The author is publishing the stories under the pseudonym Adam Kriegel.

The series was first introduced on the internet in 2008 at the STPMA fan fiction forum. There are currently five incomplete short stories and several more in early draft stages. The creative author has also set up a reference site directly for the series from his notes as well as images.


The premise of the series is a diplomatic research expedition to a distant region of the galaxy. The starships Ibn Battuta and USS Gates are assigned to the expedition after a Hirazi ship shows up and proposes a diplomatic exchange that the Federation accepts.

The series starts in the Earth year 2408 AD. The series is set up as an anthropological expedition to the various worlds of the distant sector. The author created dozens of fictional worlds using the methods of Conworlding or Worldbuilding as background information for the series which will all be presented in an ethnographic format.
