The K/Star Awards were slash fan fiction awards. They were first announced by the editors of Not Tonight, Spock!:“The K/Star Awards are an attempt to spotlight the writers, artists, poets, and editors who give of their time and talents to feed our addiction to K/S.” The awards were sponsored by the organizers of the first K/S convention IDICon.
There were three award years, and the K/Star Award ceased with the discontinuation of Not Tonight, Spock!.
