Story of the Year

Unreality SF is a British web site dedicated to tie-in fiction of all sorts. In honor of their first anniversary, they held open voting to determine the "Story of the Year." After the nominating process, they listed the top ten vote-getters, and held another open vote to determine the winner. The nominees included novels and audio dramas, plus a short story, most in the realm of Star Trek and Doctor Who (the exception was a 4400 novel).

1. Star Trek: Destiny: Gods of Night by David Mack

4. A Gutted World by Keith R.A. DeCandido (in Star Trek: Myriad Universes: Echoes and Refractions)
5. Star Trek: The Next Generation: Greater than the Sum by Christopher L. Bennett
