In the early '70s, fan fiction was emerging, much of it based on ''[[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Star Trek]]'' (the original series) and ''Series/TheManFromUNCLE''. In those days, fan fiction was published in fan-made magazines called "fanzines" and distributed at fan conventions. Paula Smith was a fan who happened to notice that many of the bad ''Star Trek'' stories had [[FandomSpecificPlot the same plot]]. They always centered on a female OriginalCharacter, who is the youngest whatever in Starfleet. Everyone falls in love with her and they go on adventures with her, typically ending with her meeting a tragic death to be mourned by all. After seeing a particularly {{egregious}} example of this storyline, Paula Smith wrote a parody, which was published in the second issue of the fanzine ''Menagerie'', which she edited with her friend Sharon Ferraro.

It also {{Ret Con}}s her into being OnlyMostlyDead so that she could live to the ''[[StarTrekTheNextGeneration Next Generation]]'' era.
