  1. Congratulations Julia! A lot of great stories out there...nice job all.. -Ben
  2. Well it's out there. Here'e hoping it can compete with the stories already out there... Good luck all!
  3. “Captain! We're under attack! The Borg have breached decks ten through fourteen. Nothing seems to stop them...what can we do?” Calmly, Starfleet's most renowned Captain turned to the panicked ensign. “Mr. Glottin, calm yourself. Initiate a level 3 magnetic pulse on decks nine through fifteen. That should take care of the problem.” The ensign's frantic typing on his keypad was the only sound for precious seconds as he worked furiously to complete the task. In moments he turned back to the captain a look of awe on his face. “Captain...the Borg...they're...” Suddenly, the ensign’s face c
  4. Ok...got it written...now I just have to get past my editors...(friends are fun.. ) I'll be posting it later today..."Transparent Desires"..
  5. I'll have to try something...not sure though.. a lot of the good concepts have been used. What will I write about that's...different...
  6. Great job guys! It's always great to see how others interpret the challenges..and what they write..
  7. The pounding on the door was growing louder. They didn't dare risk a stray shot, hitting something in here, so there was no weapons fire. But even with the reinforced door, it was simply a matter of time. He looked back down at the paper in front of him. Perhaps, the low tech solution would allow him to put a stop to them. Or at least explain his actions. Once again, he scanned the paper, then began writing, desperately trying to ignore the ever growing intensity of the pounding. “If you are reading this, then I am dead. Corny I know, but far too true. I have managed to win the war, on
  8. Whew! Wasn't sure I was going to make mine in under the time limit. For what it's worth..
  9. “Shuttle craft Blake, requesting permission to land.” Ben heard the pilots words, and sat down as he was requested. All of this was done entirely mechanically, following the instructions without any conscious thought. All of his concentration was with the reception to come. Ben looked down at the letter in his hand once more. He knew what it said, had someone asked he could have repeated it verbatim. Still, he couldn't help reading the flowing script from his captain one more time. “Ben, This letter marks the one year anniversary of your father's death. During this past year, I have done all

  11. I've got one to enter...just gotta get it tweaked. Currently it's more likely to make the judges fall over laughing than anything else..
  12. Um... While I'm glad we have a new challenge...and "the show must go on".... Any chance we could get the judge's reviews for the last one? (no rush...just really want to read the thoughts of the reviewers...*smirk* or at least the printed ones.. )
  13. Hey all, Just wondering about the judge's comments? No rush..just curious..
  14. Thanks all for your kind comments...not sure mine was any better than any of yours...but a little money goes a long way..errr...(just kidding). Nice job Toni...congrats on a great story.. (So...do you guys think beating your ship's first officer here is a good or bad thing? Anyone got a spare ship? *smirk*)
  15. Two men stood in the middle of the galaxy. They could have been virtually any height, with the only points of reference the stars and galaxies around them. An outsider watching them would have noticed the lack of protection, and the fact that they could hear them talk. If such an outsider existed. The younger of the two was shouting at the other. "And I'm telling you, you're wrong! I know these creatures, I've studied them, they will adapt. The harsher the consequences, the more impossible the odds...the more they'll change, the more they'll invent, until they win." The elder of the two in
  16. I've got an idea I'm fleshing out on this... Of course, for those interested...there's a book that deals with a similar situation (multiple planet "empire" who suddenly loses "warp" technology). Kind of interesting read. Hyperion, Fall of Hyperion, Endymion, and Rise of Endymion. (Good read either way IMO) Of course their "warp" technology is more similar to an interdimensional teleport system...but... Anyway...good luck all...
  17. I liked it. Was tempted to write a couple other stories on the plotline..then work had the audacity to require my full concentration....*curses..foiled again* Overall, I'd have to give it a Pi^2 out of 10. (To be REALLY difficult..*smirk*)
  18. Well, I posted my first attempt....to the judges...Please be kind... To my fellow writers...Best of Luck...and may some of it be good...
  19. “Send the shuttle” whispered the voice. Cadet John Williams woke with a start, looking around his quarters. He’d dozed off in the middle of studying for final exams, and especially the dreaded psych evaluation. He looked around further, but, finding nothing out of place, quickly went back to his studies. “Very impressive Cadet Williams. No one has ever used the shuttle in the Koyabashi Maru to create a linked transporter path. You minimized the potential losses, and maintained sufficient distance to prevent a combat. Excellent job!” John was still amazed. He’d heard of the Koyabashi maru
  20. Thanks all.... Alana, I agree with you... after showing it to my sister the english major who promptly showed me the grammar problems...*ewwww* Glad the story was liked though...
  21. Glad someone else cracked before I did.... But now that someone ELSE has asked....When? Huh huh? *grin*
  22. As the door opened, admitting three cadets holding a golden idol in the rough male shape, the Commandant sat back and smiled. It had taken many long years, and constant efforts to bring this class to its completion. They were now a force that would long be respected and would soon go out into the galaxy to make their legends out among the stars. All of them save one. That one would soon prove just how lucky he’d been up to now. His lack of respect, lack of protocol, and, though nothing he could officially take note of, the Commandant secretly added lack of parentage, all stood against h
  23. Congrats to all the winners! I know they are probably busy, but if the judges could give me some input...I'd really appreciate it. For that matter, if anyone has the time (and willingness) I'd like opinions/suggestions. Didn't figure I stood much of a chance for a first time story...but since I hate losing..*smirk* Thanks for any help, And congrats again to those who obviously don't need help... Walker
