Star Trek: Lambda Paz is a prose series that takes place during and after the Dominion War. The series draws on elements from the television series Deep Space Nine and Voyager and the novel series New Frontier. The opening prose Revenge a Dish Best Served Cold features most of main cast of Deep Space Nine following the Second Battle of Deep Space Nine.
The crew of the USS Lambda Paz is made up of experienced Starfleet officers and former members of the Maquis, as was the case on the Voyager television series. Unlike Voyager, however, the captain and first officer have more of an adversarial relationship. Much of the captain's character traits are based on those of Mackenzie Calhoun of the New Frontier novel series. Most notably she is Bajoran, meaning she has fought hard for her people's freedom as a member of the Bajoran resistance and the Maquis.
Like most fan-fiction, this series makes uses of photomanipulation. While the most common practice is to use A-list celebrities, characters are in this series are "portrayed" by lesser known actors from various action-oriented and science-fiction television series, as well as one-time Star Trek guest actors (either as their character in a Star Trek television series or as an entirely different character) (See individual character pages).
