From the archive: Writing Challenge 2008

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 edition includes two entries from May/June 2008. The challenge was simple: “Hospitality” Let’s take a look at some of the stories that were produced!

Hospitality Reaches Across Many Borders” by Idril Mar
His ship destroyed, Scott Grissam finds himself floating, alone in an escape pod, awaiting his fate. But it seemed fate had different ideas for Scott as a Klingon Bird of Prey comes to his rescue, but is all as it seems? A very well crafted and engaging story that includes some excellent descriptions.

Welcome to Hospitality” by Jophry Calhan
A dark tale about Jesper,a down trodden holoengineer, an ugly, excluded figure who is shifted from assignment to assignment. A well written story and the author manages to make Jesper feel like an individual and creates empathy for his struggle. How far can one man be pushed before he starts to push back?
