The typist thanks everyone for being so nice to her after she lost some fingers in a recent accident. She says typing this issue has been a challenge.

From the zine:
The staff of the DT is currently soliciting other genre stories for Science Fiction. We are interested in Star Wars, Dr Who and non media Sci Fi to include in our publications. If you are interested in writing these kind of stories, please contact the Chief Editor. Stories based on media series must maintain the integrity of the original creation. We will not accept mixed media such as Star Wars and Star Trek characters in the same plots. Star Trek stories must have only star Trek characters and worlds etc and Star Wars must be strictly Star Wars. Mixed Genres are considered offensive to the original creators and we are not interested in offending George Lucas or causing Gens Roddeberry to spin in his grave.

The Chief Editor for all Star Wars is Brad Jacobs. Star Wars stories are to be turned in to Brad for accuracy verification. The position of Chief Editor for Star Trek Stories is open. The ST editor must be well versed in Star Trek trivia and knowledge. contact Ingrid Malik or Brad Jacobs if you are interested.

We are expanding personal charactors to include Star Wars charactors for SW story writing. Any one wishing to have an SW charactor may develop their charactor with the understanding that the integrity of SW must be maintained and the charactors may ONLY be used in SW stories. Contact Brad Jacobs for accuracy verification. All SW charactors must have the approval of the SW Editor before being turned into the Cheif Editor of the DT. [typos included]
