Star Trek Official Site accepting pitches...

https://www.startrek.com/Pitching

StarTrek.com accepts pitches for essays, reported work, features, and more. Below, you'll find a few general tips for pitching to our Managing Editor and staff. All assignments will be contracted and paid. Writers from outside the United States are welcome.

We are interested in pitches on the following evergreen topics:

Timely responses to recent Star Trek episodes. This is not a call for recaps. It’s a call for deeper looks at various aspects that might have been introduced or explored in an episode.
Trek related essays (We will also consider video essay pitches on a case-by-case basis.)
Personal essays that relate back to Trek.
Any reported work that ties current events back into Trek, including...
Reported pieces about current space exploration (NASA, SpaceX, ISSA, etc.)
Reported pieces about technology relevant to Trek. (ie, Do you know of someone developing an EpiPen that operates like a hypospray? We want to know about it.)
Deep dives (Did you reread Planet X and find some revelatory detail that warrants 1500-2000 words? Hit us up.)
Listicles (we're eager to hear about your top 10 Class M Planets!)
Interviews with interesting Star Trek fans.
Any other creative ideas you might have! Please make sure that they do not fall under the category of things we explicitly do not want. (See below)

We are interested in pitches on the following topics (as they relate to Star Trek) for the month of APRIL 2019:

National Poetry Month
Arab American Heritage Month
National Volunteer Month
Star Trek: Discovery’s Season 2 finale
Earth Day
Equal Pay Day
TOS Episode: The City on the Edge of Forever
DS9 Episode: In The Pale Moonlight
TNG Episode: The Drumhead
VOY Episode: Living Witness

We are not interested in the following topics:

Freelance episode recaps for Discovery or any other Trek shows, past or present.
Freelance interview pitches for current or former Star Trek cast or crew members at this time.
Spec scripts for current or former Star Trek series.
Star Trek series pitches.
Star Trek fan films.

Because why pay writers to create content? That's so last century.

But it says "All assignments will be contracted and paid."

So it does, my bad.
