This is where you'll find Fan Fiction all based in the Oolite Universe.

Drew Wagar

Status Quo. Cover by Neil Badman

Status Quo (2006) - The first story in the Oolite Saga. “A brilliant scientist uncovers a terrifying plot to begin a galactic war. Aided by a talented, but reluctant and embittered combateer, he must stop the deployment of a super weapon he invented. A weapon so powerful it threatens to destroy entire worlds.”

Elite came with a Novella called 'The Dark Wheel', which set the scene for the game. 'Status Quo' aims to do the same thing for 'Oolite', introducing Commander Jamesons to the 'Ooniverse'...

Mutabilis. Cover by Neil Badman

Mutabilis (2008) - The second story in the Oolite Saga. “When a series of linked murders forces GalCop to outlaw the shadow organisation known as ‘The Dark Wheel’, a mysterious top secret document must be found in order to stave off a galactic conflict. The document contains a devastating secret; the key to domination, power and control. A secret as old as space itself, the location of the legendary planet ‘Raxxla’”.

'Mutabilis' is the sequel to 'Status Quo' and also introduces readers to the adventures of Captain Hesperus. Further accounts of this roguish character can be found in the Calliope story below...

Incursio (Due 2011) - The third story in the Oolite Saga. “When a deadly alien attack is launched across the galaxy, humankind finds itself under-prepared and overwhelmed. As star systems begin to fall, privateers take up the battle alongside the military forces and a desperate plan is hatched to stop the invaders once and for all, before humanity is eradicated.”

Drew has also written a number of short stories for the Oolite Universe…

Schism (2007) - ”Lumbering through the deeps of space are the Generation Ships; huge self contained transports driving between the stars at sublight speeds in the midst of thousand year journeys to populate new planets. After 30 generations, a staggering and devastating truth is revealed to the occupants of one such ship…”

Nine (2009) - “The story of an attempt to reach the ‘ninth’ chart. As players familiar with Elite and Oolite will doubtless know there are only eight charts reachable by Galactic Hyperspace. Does the ninth chart exist? Can it be reached? If so, what’s there? This is a slightly chilling tale of the ‘Ooniverse’…”

Ascension (2009) - ”A tale of what might happen when an example of sophisticated technology is suddenly thrust upon a backward culture steeped in religion.”

Replay (2009) - “Difficult to describe even in summary without giving away the plot. It’s only three and a half pages long, so won’t take you long! Enjoy!”

Dylan Smith

The Virtuous Misfortune (2006) - Dylan wrote the first short story for Oolite. A salutary warning in terms of who and how to fight, and what cargoes are safe to carry...

Blaze O'Glory

Calliope (2009) - An episode from the unorthodox life of Captain Hesperus. Money is short, the engines are failing, and there's soup on the ceiling ...

Local Midnight in the Vacuum Bar (2010) - A short story.

Wyvern & Clym Angus

Rise of the Kirin (2009) by Wyvern & Clym Angus.

Negotiations of failure (2010) on the Oolite BB by Wyvern. An Oolite short story.

El Viejo

Coyote (2010) on Box.Net. "A ripping yarn of the spacelanes".

Kaxgar (2010) on Box.Net. "A tale of a lost planet in peril".

PA Groove

The Ipsiolon Treat (2010) on the Oolite BB. A work in progress.

K Thomas (OneOfTheLost)

Herald's End by K Thomas

Herald's End (2009-2010) on the Oolite BB. An Oolite short story, a work in progress.


Vakume Danserz (2010) on the Oolite BB. Not quite a story, in my opinion. A vignette, perhaps.

Carver's Anarchy (2010) on the Oolite BB. This might be the first installment, or it might be the only story about Carver and his crew that I actually get around to finishing.
