Nudnicks is a Star Trek: TOS newsletter for a sort of roleplaying club. There were at least three issues.

The members were all female and each member's name was a mash-up of her legal name.

The newsletter printed member addresses, the rules, and each member's "report," which consisted of self-insertion descriptions of members' fantasy adventures meeting the stars and characters in Star Trek. The game was probably played in a round robin-style, and this newsletter collected all the responses for print, not unlike an apa.

"We are open to suggestions as to future assignments. Poetry contributions will be accepted! This is however, an exclusive mini-club. Merely unheard of in every sense of the word. Our goal is to have the biggest belly-laugh possible. Leonard Nimoy sets a copy of every Nudnick issue we put out. We are Klean but not Squeeky-Klean."
