If your work is complete, use the horizontal arrow post icon. Items not marked with an icon or marked with the WiP icon will not be considered for judging and will be moved to the "Character Cafe" forum at the end of the contest. Your work must be entirely your own. No co-authoring. You are welcome to create any character you so desire, but they must be from the Star Trek universe. No "canon" characters allowed. (i.e.- No one who has been on a show.)

Challenge: "What if the Dominion had won?"

We all know that Good triumphed over Evil at the end of the Dominion War, with the resourceful StarFleet soundly trouncing the cunning Founders. But what if the tables had turned and the Dominion had beaten back our heroes to take control over much of the Alpha and Beta quadrants? In the short form you're allowed, give us a glimpse of a potential (albeit non-cannon) aftermath of the war. Feel free to answer, or not answer, any of the many questions surrounding this possible timeline -- do the Dominion leave the Federation in tact, under their control? Do the Romulans and Klingons succumb? Is there a viable rebel movement? Billions of people await the nub of your pen, dear writer -- are you gentle, or ruthless with their futures? Show us this provocative scenario from any angle you like (Dominion, Federation, Romulan, Klingon, or any other that comes to mind!), as long as it's interesting, creative, and Trekky!

Good Luck!
