From the Archive: A look back at the 2003 Writing Challenge

StarBase 118 Staff

Recommended Posts

Our community Writing Challenge ran from 2003 to 2014 and provided players with writing prompts six times a year. Prompts could be anything from “a character’s sacrifice” to “where do you see the universe in 10 years.” Over the course of 11 years, an anthology of creative writing was produced.

While the challenge ended in 2014 after a long and successful run, there’s lots to read and remember from this archive. In this column, we’ll be looking back at some of the highlights. This month’s entry includes two entries from September/October 2003. The challenge was simple: Write about death. Let’s take a look at some of the stories that were produced!

In the Service of the Emperor” by Idril Mar
An intriguing look into a little known Trek species, the T’Kon and what may have caused their extinction, written from a personal perspective. Whilst only a short narrative, it succeeds in drawing the reader in, leaving them wanting more.

The Logical Conclusion of Life” by Kaedyn Zehn
A touching tale of one man’s decision to end his life.This story tackles an emotional subject in a simple and heartfelt manner, and although not explicitly stated it could be presumed the main characters are parents of a Star Trek favourite.
