Good Morning all,

Congratulations again to our last rounds winner, David Whale...who will be joining the judging for this round, and has come up with the following:

"The Gathering Darkness"

Whether it's a story about evil forces, black holes, or death itself... come up with something following the standards below. Have fun..and good luck!

Guidelines: To participate, create a new thread. The subject of the thread must be the title of your story. If it is a Work In Progress, denote that with the heart post icon. 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.)

Want to participate, but can't start a new topic? Why didn't you view the "Read Me First!" forum? You'll need to ask a moderator or Senior Member to create a thread for you!

Length: No more than 3000 words accepted.

Beginning Date: Monday, September 21st

Ending Date: Friday, October 23rd

Congratulations to this Challenge's winner, Lt. Cmdr Cara Maria for Darkening Skies. And to the Runner up, The End of days, by Dr. Eliaan Deron!

As Toni suggested, this was not an easy call for the judges. We had to break a three way tie for first...and that was only broken by 1 point between them!

Excellent stories all!

We'll have the individual reviews up sometime tomorrow!

Looking forward to seeing what comes next from everyone!

Good afternoon all,

I need to apologize, as there was an error in the judging process. Due to some confusion..the order of the stories was inverted in the grading from a judge. Obviously that shifts the values some.

The story, "The Darkness within" by Ensign Tallis Rhul is the winning entry for this round. Congratulations Ensign Rhul!

There is currently a tie for Runner up..which is being resolved. However, news like this needs to go out quickly.

An update will go out when we have the runner up finalized.

And...after pulling in a guest judge from the Executive Council(Thank you Captain Mar!), we have the runner up!

Good name for a Shuttle, by Lt. Cmdr Tal Tel-ar!

Congrats to both the winner and runner up!
