Jenkins III, Henry
Critical Studies in Mass Communication, v5 n2 p85-107 Jun 1988
Discusses women who write fiction and fan literature based on the "Star Trek" universe, outlining how Star Trek fans force the primary text to accommodate alternate interests. Also considers the issue of literary property in light of the moral economy of the fan community that shapes the range of permissible retellings of the program materials. (JK)
