Orion Archives: 2292-2323 U.S.S. Chosin is a gen Star Trek anthology with fiction featuring original characters. This zine reprints content published in previous Orion Press zines in particular from Orion. Some of the later issues also reprint online fanfic. The early issues are numbered, later on the titles are organized by the fictional timeframe the zine takes place in (many Orion Press zines take place in a vaguely shared universe at least as far as the basic chronology of the Trek universe is concered. Their website offers timelines and such that the zines adhere to). Issues are still being released as of 2009, and there are also re-releases of older Orion Archives issues. A full list is available at the Orion Press website.


Orion Archives: 2292-2323 U.S.S. Chosin 1 contains 186 pages. Artwork by BEKi, Rick Endres, Randall Landers, David Lawrence and Zaquia Tarhuntassa.
