|STAR TREK FAN FICTION|
|Star Trek: Gloriana|
Star Trek: Gloriana is an episodic fan fiction series originally conceived by P.J. Gaffney, R. Grimshaw and A. James and written by P.J. Gaffney. The series is focused around the Gloriana-class starship USS Gloriana and the adventures of her crew. The series began in it's current state in December 2007 with the release of the pilot episode. New episodes are currently scheduled to be released on a weekly basis.
Initially, Gloriana was the brain-child of three individuals who met over a Star Trek fansite. The three spent many months carefully planning and establishing an RPG through a combination of instant messaging and 'interactive chat room' sessions. Eventually, "Starbase Intrepid" was conceived and officially launched sometime in 2002. The RPG developed a fairly strong fan basis but eventually lost popularity, culminating in closure just a year after she had opened. In 2004 Gaffney and Grimshaw decided to remake the RPG (James had expressed no interest in helping once more) but had little success in the endeavor. In 2006, one finally attempt was made by Gaffney with the help of C. McKenna in order to expand the latter's Sci-Fi RPG network. Enjoying some success, Gaffney was forced to cancel the project due to personal difficulties.
In mid to late 2007, Gaffney made the decision to revive Intrepid in the form of a fan fiction series. He salvaged many plots and themes from the Intrepid RPGs for Season 1 episodes and moved the focus from a Starbase to a starship in the 2380s. He began writing the first episode in November, and officially released it on the semi-complete forums on December 1st 2007 under the name Star Trek: Gloriana.
Currently, only Season 1 episode titles (and a few Season 2 titles) have been made publicly available. New episodes are scheduled for release every Saturday.
Season 1 is scheduled to run from December 1st 2007 to March 24th 2008, encompassing 17 episodes in all. On December 1st, all episode titles were made publicly available, all though some may be subject to change.
