Star Trek: Sutherland


Star Trek: Sutherland is a Star Trek-based fan fiction series that takes place in the late 24th century, created by David Falkayn. Star Trek: Sutherland involves the adventures of the captain and crew of the Nebula-class starship USS Sutherland (NCC-72015) within the United Trek Universe.

The series begins at the end of 2371 with Captain Elizabeth Shelby taking command of the Sutherland which has just completed a refit after being reassigned from her previous command, the New Orleans-class starship USS Malcolm Reed. Current adventures have taken ship and crew through most of 2372, with future adventures covering the Dominion War and its aftermath. Described by some in Starfleet as the “rowdiest ship in the fleet”, the Sutherland, both captain and crew, enjoy a reputation not only for surviving difficult and dangerous encounters and situations, but also for their frequently exuberant off-duty behavior.

Star Trek: Sutherland is a PG-13 series that very often treads into adult subject matter. An important running theme of this series is “family”. What is a family? Who belongs? Who doesn’t? Who decides who belongs and who doesn’t? Separations and reunions, quarrels and reconciliations, loneliness and alienation, happiness and sadness, birth and death, loss and recovery, all figure in the life cycle of families and readers will see all these themes and more in “Star Trek: Sutherland”.
