The Warp 5 Complex, a Star Trek: Enterprise fan fiction archive, is being imported to the Archive of Our Own (AO3).
In this post:
- A bit of background explanation.
- What this means for creators who have work on the Warp 5 Complex.
- What to do if you still have questions.
The Warp 5 Complex (W5C), which has existed since 2002 to archive Star Trek: Enterprise fan fiction, uses eFiction software as its platform. This software is no longer maintained and has become a security hazard. Thus, to keep the stories available to the fan community, the fic archive moderator, Kylie Lee, has decided to move the archive to the AO3 via the Open Doors project, which seeks to archive and preserve fan artworks.
