Star Trek: Strange New Worlds is a short story anthology series based on and inspired by Star Trek and its spin-offs. The series was edited by Dean Wesley Smith, with assistance from John J. Ordover and Paula M. Block. Published by Simon & Schuster imprints: Pocket Books, Pocket Star, and Gallery Books, from 1998 to 2016. The collected stories were submitted by amateur writers.

Smith announced the series would not continue after its tenth edition, in 2007.[1] A new edition was announced in 2015, scheduled for release as part of Star Trek's 50th Anniversary Celebration.[2]


The concept for the series was developed by John J. Ordover.[3] He was to offer opportunities amateur writers and fans to gain experience by submitting stories for publication, similar to The New Voyages (1976).[3] With the assistance of Paula M. Block, then the head of Star Trek licensing at Paramount Pictures, legal questions from the studio were studied, as well as developing submission guidelines for stories. Block had attempted to muster support for a continuation of The New Voyages format while at Paramount, but was not successful until her partnership with Ordover.[3]:486 Established anthology editor Dean Wesley Smith was recruited to select stories for the series.[1][3]

Submissions were open to residents of the United States and Canada (excluding Quebec). The stories had to be original—not formally published elsewhere, and the characters depicted had to be established Star Trek characters—either major or minor.

Submitters who later published Star Trek novels include: Dayton Ward, Ilsa J. Bick, and Geoffrey Thorne.

Strange New Worlds III (2000) included a story written entirely in Klingon, "jubHa’ " by Lawrence Schoen.[4] Schoen contributed to The Klingon Hamlet, which was reprinted by Pocket Books the same year.

The series ended in 2007. Smith announced via his blog that "Ten years was enough. It was a fun ride."[1]

Simon & Schuster revived the series in 2015, as part of Star Trek's 50th Anniversary celebration. However, the terms for submissions were considered so onerous by Smith he encouraged potential contributors not to participate.[5] Strange New Worlds 2016 was released as an ebook exclusive in October 3, 2016. No editor was credited, and no new editions have been announced.


The anthologized stories are organized according to the television series they are based on.
