real-world perspective.

Star Trek: Daedalus is a fan fiction series revolving around Captain Christopher Mackenzie and the crew of the USS Daedalus, set in the years following the Dominion War.



The story of the Daedalus are simply stories handwritten over the last 7 years, and have only just begun becoming digitized via the efforts of STEU members Bok2384 & The Doctor, and later on Talon Lardner. The stories begin in 2376 with the re-launch of the Daedalus, and currently go up to the beginning of 2382.

The series itself is set in the main Star Trek universe, and includes elements from the novels, comics, and computer games.


Character development

Without a shadow of a doubt, the most successful character ensemble was the triumvirate of James T. Kirk, Spock, and Leonard McCoy, which was an essential ingredient in the success of Star Trek: The Original Series. While a similar character set-up was tried in Star Trek: Enterprise, the writers of the series felt the similar dynamic could be tried with the three main characters from the series, Christopher Mackenzie, Selok, and James Maxwell.
