He co-created the Star Trek: Corps of Engineers (formerly Star Trek: Starfleet Corps of Engineers) eBook series with John J. Ordover, and has written more eBooks in the series than anyone else. He has edited or co-edited several Trek short story collections, and was the editor responsible for the Star Trek original eBook line from 2000-2008, which included not only CoE, but the anniversary miniseries Mere Anarchy and Slings and Arrows.
He has written stories based on all five TV series, including the first single story to encompass all five (The Brave and the Bold), as well as several of the prose-only series. He is also the creator of the Star Trek: Klingon Empire (formerly Star Trek: IKS Gorkon) novel series.
In 2009, DeCandido was named a Grandmaster by the International Association of Media Tie-In Writers, for his extensive body of work in tie-ins.
