YMMV: A Trekkie's Tale
  • Weird Al Effect: The story is mostly a parody of a Fandom Specific Plot common in Trekdom during the early '70s: a beautiful young woman (a.k.a. the author) joins the crew of the Enterprise and impresses everyone with her abilities before dying a tragic death to be mourned by all. This plotline is long forgotten now and, of course, the meaning of the term "Mary Sue" has long since been expanded to refer to any idealized Author Avatar in any fandom.
