    Summary

    John Grimm, now the Chief Medical Officer of the Enterprise and a fairly likeable man named Leonard McCoy, is beginning to feel like a human again. Then the Enterprise encounters the SS Botany Bay, and events quickly spiral into chaos. The Reaper meets an opponent not unlike himself; except Khan believes the strong has an obligation to rule the weak, and the only way to stop Khan from commandeering the Enterprise is for John to balance on the edge between human and Other, without losing sight of what it means to be both.

    Summary

    Spock is completing the unexciting work of observing the Kobayashi Maru exams when all of Starfleet Academy is summoned and sent off on a mission of mercy to assist Vulcan, which has sent out a distress signal. It is a respite from the mundane work of observing cadets taking the Kobayashi Maru exam, since it is a no-win scenario and the outcome never changes. However, he is catapulted into the adventure of a lifetime, alongside Captain Pike and the crew of the new Starfleet flagship, the USS Enterprise.

    OR

    A re-telling of the Star Trek (2009) movie, and an AU in which Kirk is not part of Starfleet, never beat the Kobayashi Maru, never snuck aboard the Enterprise with McCoy, but yet still played a large part in saving Earth and the Federation from Nero.

    Summary

    After his dream is crushed, Izuku isn’t sure there’s anything left for him to live for, but... he can’t kill himself, not without hurting the people he loves. So, when he realizes that the quirkless can’t technically be vigilantes, it seems like the best of both worlds! He’ll be able to save people without being a hero, and, if he happens to die while he’s at it... Well, like Kacchan said, maybe he’ll be born with a quirk in the next life.

    All Katsuki wants to do is apologize to De— to Izuku... But apologies without action are meaningless; so he volunteers at that local hero’s Villain Rehabilitation Program. It’s the perfect plan: he’ll do community service, get to see how a real hero acts, and learn to be better. He’s not here to make friends or anything.

    Shouta has been on this case for 5 years, and every time he thinks they’ve successfully taken down the Villain Factory, it comes back with a vengeance. Now, with his Problem Child’s brilliant analyses and Amplifier’s brat nosing his way in with his helpful yet dubiously legal... connections... he’s actually starting to believe that he can take the Villain Factory down for good. All he has to do now is keep these meddling kids safe.
