I was fiddling with the RPF pages on Fanlore, and it occurred to me that certain science fiction fandom practices might also have had an influence on Star Trek RPF, since Star Trek fandom was so indebted to sf fandom. SF fandom had faanfiction, where fans wrote stories about each other (I've never read one, so I don't know what these stories read like). Some pro authors did this too. Recently, I read a short story collection by Philip K. Dick that included a story about Poul Anderson getting kidnapped from a convention by people from the future. On the other hand, these practices may have more in common with self-insertion fic than RPF. I have no data to back this up beyond the plot of Visit to a Weird Planet. Has anyone ever written about this?
