Since its founding in early 2009, the Ad Astra Star Trek Fanfiction Archive strives to bring you quality fanfics without any of the headaches. Our community of authors offer a welcoming environment to read or contribute, by providing a friendly enclave in which to discuss, publish, and collaborate.
Join our forums or follow us using social media:
Note: A separate registration is required for our forums.
One of the things that makes the archive and the forum such a success and such a pleasure is of course the wonderful community of writers and readers. Interactive feedback is insanely valuable to a writer and hey everyone can do with an ego boost, because no matter the review, we all like to get a chime telling us someone read our work and felt enough to make a comment good, bad or indifferent. So get reading and reviewing for another manic Review Hunt
The review hunt is scored thusly:
- Base points: The number of words per review. So, if you write five words in a review, you get five points.
- Bonus points: As stated above, we like to reward quality over quantity. Therefore, you can win bonus points for posting an in-depth review!
- Extra bonus points: For every review on a story on the Master List, there will be an additional +? bonus points (Steff can decide that).
The Master List is going to be a recommendation of one of your own stories and one from a different author. Post your story choices in this thread.
Post reviews in the Review Count thread.
There is no limit on the stories you can review. You're welcome to re-review a story you read long ago, bringing new insights to the table for the author to enjoy. Feed the creative souls of Ad Astra, and win!
