This week's featured article

from issue #24, the editors Sandy and Shirley, illustrated by Joni Wagner

The Halkan Council was a very influential Star Trek: TOS monthly letterzine.

Published by two high school students, it is considered the first letterzine in Star Trek fandom, and by default, possibly the first in all media fandom. It sponsored the first Star Trek Fan Fund, started the Fan Q Awards, and was the first zine in which the term slash (referenced as "/") appeared.

"The Halkan Council" was the gathering place for much of the early discussion of the show, and there were many letters by the movers and shakers of the time. Some of the topics enthusiastically debated: Vulcan biology and genetics, Kraith, the tensions between Star Trek and science fiction fans, the state of fandom in general, specific fanworks and tropes, and much more.

News and updates

October 24, 2020

Fanlore is excited to present a redesigned version of our Fanlore:Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)! This major update incorporates questions formerly found on the Fanlore:Intro to Fanlore FAQ into this page to create one consolidated FAQ. We've removed or combined duplicate questions from the two FAQs, and have also updated and reorganized much of the language in the updated FAQ.

In the updated FAQ, you can find the answers to these common issues and more:

  • What type of content belongs on Fanlore
  • The best ways to get started as an editor
  • What stubs are and whether you can make them
  • What to do if you disagree with content someone else published on Fanlore
  • The difference between a User page and a People page
  • How much control you have over what is said about you outside of your User page

Do you have a question that isn't addressed in the revamped FAQ? Submit your question to the Fanlore Committee and suggest that we add it!
