Star Trek: Personal Logs is the overall title to a series of science-fiction short stories, written by members of the fan-club chapter USS Dauntless. They portray the adventures of characters created by members of the Dauntless, in the years before they became part of the crew of the starship USS Dauntless (NCC-75310), in the fictional Star Trek universe created by Gene Roddenberry.
