The mission statement of this website is to bring the world stories that will never see the light of day unless they're fan-produced, as the stories on New Worlds are considered "possibly unpalatable" by mainstream hardcover/paperback-publishing media. Also, New Worlds has compiled a list of links to still-active fic & media sites. Story and media fansites survived the Paramount-Viacom purge of fansites some years ago, and other fansites that may have gone offline due to companies being bought, sold, and folded into one another in the meantime, or just an old fashioned lack of interest.
Star Trek: New Worlds allows contributors to submit everything from Shipper and Slash; G-Rated to NC17. Canon, Alternate universe, and original/non-canon stories, including collaborative stories translated from now-defunct play-by-email sims.
New Worlds welcomes, embraces, and accepts English and non-English language stories from both inside and outside North America. However, the (age-restricted) New Worlds Yahoo group's "Files" area is available for all Trek fans to join, upload story files, store them and disseminate their stories to friends, fans, and family all over the world in their own non-English / indigenous language.
Donations are encouraged by credit card via PayPal.
The collections at New Worlds include complete and incomplete work in progress boredom projects that have followed-up on loose ends of various "canon" TNG episodes such as Season 5's "Night Terrors" and "Shatnerverse" trek lit. Star Trek: New Worlds includes monthly writing challenges, and authors such as Star Trek: Screaming Rebel by Doug Kulp (an author that's also known to contribute work to The Trek Writers Guild.) There have been additional authors contributing as of 2012, such as Robert Scorpio of (San Diego) California, an alumnus of Ad Astra.
