[[WMG:[[GenFic General Fics]]]]
''Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.''

''[[ Star Trek: Foundations]]'' by various authors
* Recommended by @/{{CX}}
* ''Status'': Dead
* ''Synopsis'': An [[AlternateUniverse alternate universe]]/[[ContinuityReboot reboot]] of the series ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' that tries its hand at writing a more continuity friendly prequel to the franchise. It uses many of the same concepts and characters, but changes things up a bit in what is a much better take on how the series could have been if it had actually stuck to its premise.

''[[ Star Trek: Enterprise, The Open Door]]'' by Taralon
* Recommended by Psyckosama
* ''Status'': Dead
* ''Synopsis'': A [[ContinuityReboot reboot]] of the series ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' that writes a far more consistent contribution to the franchise. Unlike Enterprise, The Open Door discards all premise of being a true prequel to the other shows, and instead plays off of ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact'', being an AlternateUniverse created in the way of the Enterprise's contact with the past. It works within the limits of the era's technology, with most of the inconsistently advanced items being the result of observation of future technology or reverse engineered from the remains of the Borg Sphere. The Temporal Cold War is completely removed and instead replaced with far reaching Romulan plotting. It still uses many of the same concepts, characters, and plot lines but keeps a might tighter view on how the technology and politics of the era would affect things.

''Stories focused on the romantic relationships between characters.''

''[[ Dreams and Reality]]'' by Shamrock
* Recommended by [[Tropers/AcrossTheStars Across The Stars]]
* ''Pairing'': Archer/Reed
* ''Synopsis'': Reed wants Archer, Trip give advice, and Porthos gets some screen time.

''[[ Star Trek: Endeavour]]'' by Rigil Kent
* Recommended by @/{{CX}}, Equestrienne Dreams, @/RoseAndHeather, @/{{BuurmanSven}}
* ''Status'': The individual stories are complete, but the series as a whole is dead.
* ''Pairing'': Trip/T'Pol
* ''Synopsis'': A [[FixFic finale fix]] that just completely ignores the actual finale of the series ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' and creates its own version with the story "Elysium". It then goes on to follow the crew's adventures in the Earth-Romulan War. This could almost be considered a General Fic because of the focus on action and drama, but the Trip/T'Pol pairing do feature pretty prominently in it. (Do beware that AnyoneCanDie. Yes, ''anyone''. Including your favorite character. Probably in a painful and vicious manner.)

''[[ Differential]]'' by Zane Gray
* Recommended by HopefulNebula
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Pairing'': Trip/T'Pol
* ''Synopsis'': "Commander Tucker and Sub-Commander T'Pol finally discover the path that Fate has chosen for them, even as perilous events unfold around them that could tear their fragile world apart forever." One of the first long Trip/T'Pol fics, and one of the best. Also, it has two prequels (''[[ One Step Back, Two Steps Forward]]'' and ''[[ Sympathies and Symmetries]]'') and a sequel (''[[ The Early Hours]]'').

''[[ The Thin Man Beams Aboard]]'' by allakimbo
* Recommended by BornIn1142
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Pairing'': Trip/T'Pol
* ''Synopsis'': "Our favorite couple has some time to get reacquainted after Commander Tucker transfers back from the Columbia. Trip introduces T'Pol to the human concept of the "whodunit," but their academic reflections on the subject are tested when Enterprise is sent to investigate a real mystery populated by some very shady characters." It's really more of a mystery story, but with enough focus on Trip and T'Pol's relationship to warrant placing here. Also has a sequel, ''[[ Thin Man Overboard]]''.

[[WMG: Crossover Fics]]

''[[ The Enterprise Strikes Back]]'' by David Marshall
* Recommended by @/TheRichSheik
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Fandoms'': Enterprise and StarWars
* ''Pairing'': T'Pol/Obi Wan Kenobi
* ''Synopsis'': On the run from General Grievous, Obi Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker fly their starfighters through an [[NegativeSpaceWedgie anomaly]], which takes them to another galaxy far far away, where they are discovered by the Enterprise.
* ''Comments'': Aside from the early T'Pol/Obi Wan shipping ([[AuthorsSavingThrow which is hastily explained]]) this is a good crossover between two prequels of the classic Trek vs Wars debate. The tech comparisons make sense, with the exception of hyperdrive functioning like warp drive-but-faster.
