FOUR LIGHTS is a Star Trek: The Next Generation fanzine focusing on the darker 'aspects of our favorite show, including hurt-comfort, alternate universes (sorry, no slash or anything horrendously graphic). We're interested in showing that the Next Generation universe is not all sweetness and light and that not every story necessanly has a happy ending.

Karolyn Barnes has contributed "Defeated," an alternate ending to Star Trek: First Contact. What if Data and Picard had not been able to defeat the Borg aboard the Enterprise?

"An End to Pain," by Gill Marsden is an alternate ending to the Next Generation episode "Man of the People." Deanna Troi is dead and Commander Riker is grim.

"'Something to Live For," by Althea Katz, is an alternate universe story taking place in the "Dark Mirror" universe, explaining how Beverly carne to be the captain's woman.

Terry S. Bowers has two stories in this issue. The first one is "Starlight and Roses." On the way back to the Enterprise, Jean-Luc Picard and Beverly Crusher are involved in a shuttle crash and wind up on a small planetoid.

Doctor Tobey Russell from the episode, "Ethics," returns to wreak havoc on Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the Enterprise in Miranda Greene's story, "The Manner of My Death."

"Getting Nowhere Fast," by Janis Sherringham, is a post-"Chain of Command" story. Captain Picard has suffered a relapse in his recovery from his captivity at the hands of the Cardassians, and it's up to Beverly Crusher to help him fmd his way back.

Terry Bowers' second story is "On the Horizon." What was supposed to be a pleasant holodeck outing turns into a dangerous confrontation for Jean-Luc Picard and Beverly Crusher.
