Dave Stern (born 1958; age ~63) is a Star Trek author and editor living in Massachusetts.

Stern's contribution to Star Trek began in a role at Bantam Books, repackaging their line of novels. In 1985, he was hired to work as editor on Pocket Books' Star Trek line, a role he continued in until 1992.

His first writing contribution was for DC Comics, co-writing the eighteenth issue of their second TNG volume, "Forbidden Fruit". Not long after, he wrote the audio adventure Transformations for George Takei.

Ten years after his departure from Star Trek work, he was approached by then-editor Margaret Clark about contributing to the Enterprise tie-in novels. Stern would eventually write five books in this series.

As well as contributing to the Mirror Universe anthology Shards and Shadows, he also wrote the Pocket TOS novel, The Children of Kings, and was hired on by Stardock to oversee creative storytelling and lore implementation for their Elemental: War of Magic game.
