20th Anniversary Writing Contest!
Posted on Sun Sep 5th, 2021 @ 5:08am by Fleet Admiral Luzol Targaryen
As many know we are celebrating 20 years of Zodiac Fleet this year! In honor of our upcoming anniversary we have some fun events planned an I would like to announce the first here today!
Zodiac Fleet is launching a writing competition in honor of our anniversary. We have two writing challenges planned. They are:
While on an assignment you meet a legendary figure in the history of the galaxy.
Your character takes the Kobayashi Maru test.
Some friendly suggestions:
Entries may be emailed to email@example.com or uploaded to the Fleet Nova at https://zodiac.16thfleet.com. Entries will be accepted from 12:00 AM PST on Sunday, September 5, 2021 until 11:59 PM on Sunday, September 19, 2021. Authors have the option to revise their work up until the deadline date and time. There is no word limit to your entry. Only one entry per author though is requested.
The legendary figure can be anyone who has appeared in a Star Trek episode, film, or tie-in product. Our only request is that the figure be portrayed as they would be in Trek (i.e. Kirk would not be timid, Barclay would not be an adventurer, Mariner shouldn’t get along with her mother, and Geordi probably wouldn’t be a Casanova).
If writing your Kobayashi Maru you may NPC your trainee crew. The crew of the test vessel will include an NPC Flight Controller, Engineering/Operations Officer, Science Officer, and Tactical Officer (these should not be characters not owned by the author). You may use any threat species as the opponent.
The winning entry will be selected by a volunteer panel of judges.
This is open to anyone within Zodiac Fleet including guests!
