Doris Beetem is one of the early Star Trek fanzine era fans who both published and contributed to fanzines.

She began writing fanfiction at the age of 16. One of her stories The Hunting (Star Trek: TOS story) appeared in the professionally published anthology Star Trek: The New Voyages in 1976. She contributed filk lyrics (mainly Blake's 7). In her later years she also wrote Blake's 7 fanfiction and published a Lord of the Rings novel in the 2000s. She was one of the founding members of DASFA (Denver Area Science Fiction Association), along with her mom (the Elder) and her younger sister (Rose).[1][2]

Dee was also president (as of 1998) of the fan club Several Unlimited. [3]
