Star Trek fans know McIntyre for her Star Trek tie-in novels which included the novelizations of three of the movies, as well as the early novel The Entropy Effect. It was in this novel that McIntyre popularized Sulu's first name, a detail that made its way into canon in the Trek movie "The Undiscovered Country". She is also responsible for naming Captain Kirk's mother Winona. McIntyre was also the author of the Star Wars Expanded Universe novel, The Crystal Star.
McIntyre was also a frequent commenter and debater in science fiction zines. One of those was the Canadian feminist zine The Witch and the Chameleon in which she was an early and influential contributor.
