If you're picky about which Star Trek books you read, you might want to keep shopping. When I was about ten years old, I discovered an amazing thing-Star Trek: The New Voyages-a book of brand new Star Trek stories. This wasn’t the retelling of television episodes, these were brand new never-before-seen adventures. Inside was a short story called Mind Sifter by Shirley S. Maiewski which could reasonably be described as changing my life. I couldn’t stop thinking about it. Something about the idea that there could be more new Star Trek stories just caught hold of me and wouldn’t let go. I wanted to be one of the people who got to write new Star Trek tales!

Although published professionally, the collected stories were written and submitted by fans. Many of the stories were previously published in fanzines, or collected in fan-published anthologies.

The return of Sondra Marshak and Myrna Culbreath. Unlike their usual TREK stories, this one never goes completely off the rails, but their lousy writing still kills it quicker than a stake through the heart. It's odd that a story about gender-switching would be among the duo's most restrained, but somehow the only moment of kink in this tale is when a Klingon captain seems about to force Girl Kirk to kiss him.

A spellbinding collection of eight of the original Star Trek stories, including The Enchanted Pool, Intersection Point, Enterprise, Mind Sifter, The Hunting, and other fantastic stories. Reprint.
  • This author concentrates on the adventures of Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock. If you like stories about them you will like these. The stories are not action driven they are more about the psychology of the main characters. I enjoyed them when I read them as a younster (about 45 years ago) and I enjoy them now.

  • I had this book when I was a teenager and wanted to see it again. What a back to the future moment and lots of cool stories.

  • Love it!

  • Published in 1979 by Bantam. This is a collection of early Star Trek fan fiction edited by Sondra Marshak and Myrna Culbreath. These two women are co-authors of Star Trek fiction in their own right. They read through dozens of stories to come up with the selection published in this book. As a highlight some of the stars of Stars of ST: The Original Series wrote forwards to each of the included short stories.

    Some of the stories very good and very well written others not so much. Not to be overly critical I didn't care for "Visit to a Weird Planet Revisited". The story enter mixes the Actors with the real characters on the Enterprise. That is William Shatner, DeForest Kelly etc. meet up with Captain Kirk, Dr. McCoy etc. I've never read the first version of this story but just didn't enjoy it. The writing is OK, just didn't like the story.

    The best story in this collection is "Mind-Sifter" by Shirley S. Maiewski. This was a great story and certainly could have been made into a very good episode had Star Trek still been in production. Shirley has been called the Grandmother of Star Trek being instrumental in the creation and editing of some of the early ST Fanzines. "Mind-Sifter" finds Capt. Kirk locked away in a mental facility on Earth sometime in the mid twentieth century. Unknown to the crew of the Enterprise, who think Jim is dead, he was kidnapped by Klingons a year previous to the time of the story. Spock has been made Captain of the Enterprise and unbeknownst to the rest of the crew still believes Kirk to bee alive. The Klingons have used their weapon known as the mind-sifter to destroy Kirk's mind and have then taken him the Guardian of Forever where he is pushed through into the past. The G of F is first seen in the epic Star trek episode "City on the Edge for Forever" Spock suspects what has happened and searches past Earth history to find out where Kirk is. This story alone makes this book worth the effort to find it and read it. There are other very good stories and I was impressed with the high quality of writing by some of the fans whose stories are included.

  • It's been a while since I read this but it's possibly still some of the best "original Star Trek" I've read. This book came out in the 70's prior to either "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" or the onslaught of numerous Star Trek novels in the 80's, and was essentially a set of creative short stories intended to pick up where the 3-season series ended. Although I can no longer recall the plot specifics of every story I do recall that each was essentially a take on on the further adventures of Kirk's Enterprise and her missions; though the collection also featured one story in which the actors of Star Trek (e.g. Shatner, Nimoy, Nichelle Nichols, etc.) are accidentally "transported" into the Star Trek universe. While I thought the premise of this last story sounded hokey I ended up finding it clever.

    All in all, this was a very enjoyable collection and many of the stories in the book were very good. This volume in my opinion represents what Star Trek fiction had the potential to be. It expanded on the series, explored new worlds, and created new situations for the crew to deal with. Wheras the original series contained great storylines it was constrained by limited special effects; in writing the author is of course free to go beyond the contraints of the series and make use of the reader's I-MAG-I-NATION. By comparison (with a few exceptions) much of the later novels were not so well imagined or inspired.

    Another nice touch to the volume is an intro by each of the Trek cast members at the beginning of the stories and a forward by Mr. Gene Rodenberry.

    I definitely recommend the book for "original" Trek fans. Many of the stories are worthy to be classic episodes or as I implied above take the original series another step further. This book makes me wonder why there's not more Trek short story collections out there as opposed to quite so many novels. This edition is a prime example that the short story was a fine medium for further Trek adventures. While I'm not sure I would honestly recommend it to non-Trek fans (as they just may not be interested) I would consider many of these as not just good Trek stories but overall strong Science fiction.

    Yet a further intriguing feature of this collection is that the stories were apparently all written by Star Trek fans. It is also interesting to note some of the most well regarded later Trek fiction were the annual "Star Trek: Strange New Worlds" books begun in '98, also written by Trek fans. This seems interesting that some of the most popular Trek works were done by the fans, maybe all "series" fiction (Star Wars, etc.) should be written by fans rather than the so-called professionals.

    There was a sequal - Star Trek New Voyages 2, while I didn't finish it the majority of stories I read were overall less engaging than this first volume.

  • I'm not sure I've ever felt so many different things from one book. I may be thinking that because I read it yesterday, but the fact remains that this is a remarkable book. Inspiring, hilarious, unsettling. To choose two favorite stories to illustrate: "The Face in the Barroom Floor," and "Mind-Sifter," which has already been mentioned twice. The first is simply hilarious. A rollicking story from beginning to end, from Kirk's barroom brawl to his escape from jail to McCoy's final conclusion that maybe Spock had better take shore leave next time. A funny, feel-good, well-written story. As opposed to "Mind-Sifter." I read it yesterday, and I'm still unsettled. I think it can all be summed up by mentioning that Kirk frequently whimpers, screams, cries, and it's not at all funny or unnatural. An excellent story. Though unsettling. Those are two of eight, I could go on but I won't. I'll just conclude that this book manages to span and touch all the best aspects of Star Trek fiction. Not bad for a little 236 page paperback.
