- For the novel, please see Far Beyond the Stars (novel).
"Far Beyond the Stars" was a science fiction story written by Benny Russell. The story featured a poor colored man dreaming about a space station in the distant future with an African-American captain.
After the change suggested by Macklin was made, the story was printed in the September 1953 issue of Incredible Tales magazine but the issue was pulped before it hit the newsstands. (DS9: "Far Beyond the Stars")
