Barbara Gordon was a fan artist whose Star Trek art appeared in numerous fanzines in the 1980s. She also created fan art, fan poetry, wrote fanfic, and was a prolific (often controversial LoCer).

Barbara Gordon was the same person as Helena Seabright, the editor of the influential, and controversial, zine Alien Brothers. Gordon also proposed at least two zines that did not see publication: "The Next Generation" and a second issue of "Alien Brothers."

An early submission request for the proposed zine, "The Next Generation." An excerpt: "Story submissions of all lengths from novel to short-short, as well as poetry of any length, articles and commentary, illustrations of all kinds including cartoons, are solicited. They will be accepted or rejected solely on the basis of quality, appropriateness to the theme, and the feasibility of contributor and editor working together to obtain a superior result without strife and acrimony. Your work will be carefully edited only where necessary, however, you have the final say on what is published, and can OK the final manuscript. Deadline for THE NEXT GENERATION will follow anthology book publishing practice: only after I receive enough high-quality material to publish will I set a date with my printer. This avoids compromising quality. "
