Scope and Contents of the Materials

This collection contains fanzines and some scattered other materials relating to the television series Star Trek: The Original Series [TOS] (1966-1969). The driving force behind most of the stories in the collection - as reflecting the cultural interests of collection donor Holly Brown - is the close friendship between the characters Captain James T. Kirk and Mr. Spock. However, stories in the collection do involve many different characters and situations.

The majority of the contents in this collection consist of fan fiction. Fan fiction is the name given to literary or artistic productions created by fans about the collection is identified as "slash”. "Slash" refers to fanworks that feature same-sex relationships and are sometimes (though not always) sexually explicit. In slash, sexual identity, sexuality and/or romance are often the centers of the story, rather than the conventional adventures featured in more traditional fanworks. Holly Brown is herself a slash writer, and much of her collecting was driven by her interest in slash.

Another substantial portion of the collection consists of "het" material. "Het", like slash, refers to fanworks featuring sexual or romantic content, but with opposite-sex relationships. "Gen" stories are those that, speaking broadly, involve the more standard sorts of adventures one might encounter in the television series or other original source material, or that do not involve sexual content as a focus of the story.

Gen and het items are identified as such on the item folder. If an item is *not* identified as gen or het, it is to be assumed that the item is slash.

A small portion of the collection involves media productions other than Star Trek [TOS]. These include the show's sequel series Star Trek: The Next Generation [TNG] as well as anthologies of multimedia fanfiction featuring stories from many different sources.

Other, smaller portions of the collection include copies of script drafts from various episodes of Star Trek [TOS] and Star Trek: The Animated Series [TAS], as well as program books and other materials from a number of science fiction conventions.
