"From a structural standpoint we can see that the linear story with a single narrative perspective per scene is so alien to this group [of Star Trek women fan writers] that they use their fiction to 'correct' the error of linearity in the source products. The fanwriters see life as a sea of potentialities, many of which can be realized simultaneously, many of which spread out like ripples across the lives of others, and all of which must be encompassed in the literature if it is to express any kind of truth" (Bacon-Smith 66).
