the cat is what writers call any work done to avoid writing, including
so called "world building" and background work. Reason? You don't get
paid for it. Well, I don't get paid for anything, so when my story muse
is on leave I create where I can, and that often means background work,
or even speculative stuff I post on Trek Creative.
Groups and characters that have not even made an appearance in my
stories, and may never. Something to aid my fellow writers in jump
starting their own ideas.
will appear in several categories. That which matters to the Epiphany
Trek universe in some fashion will be noted as such.

Confederations, and Empires. These are the top end of the political

than one race within them. Subgroups of the larger one will be included
under that particular Star Union.

Our Heroes. The main location in Star Trek, it's where we keep our
stuff. Starfleet's hearth and home.

One of many departments.

Standards: Another of many departments.
