Foundry Challenge #6 : Beyond the Web
Hello and welcome to another Foundry Challenge! :cool: These challenges will be posted every 9-10 weeks, which includes 6 weeks to make your mission, and 3 weeks for the community to play through all of the missions and cast one  official vote for a winner. At the end of the 3 weeks of playthrough and voting, a winner, based on a simple majority of votes, will be announced and awarded 1000 STO Promo Points for the C-Store (enough to also purchase additional Foundry slots through the Dilithium exchange, if the winner chooses) and earn a guaranteed spot as a future Foundry Spotlight mission.
Today we start the nine-week run of the sixth Foundry Challenge: Beyond the Web
During the past several weeks, the Tholians have re-emerged and have been spotted in several systems and sectors across the Beta quadrant, including Nukara Prime, Mol'Rihan (New Romulus) and Eta Eridani. While signs point to the Tholians having an interest in advanced technology, particularily anything harnessing interspacial rifts, investigations are still ongoing.
You will have from today, Wednesday January 16th, until Wednesday, February 27th at 10am PST to make your Foundry mission and reply to this thread with its information in the following format:
Starting on Wednesday, February 27th, around 10AM PST, the 3-week playthrough and review stage will begin. Only entries made in this thread prior to 10AM, and are published/ available in-game, on that Wednesday will be eligible to participate in the challenge. Look for a voting thread to be made which will explain the voting process (some info below).
This is the author's thread -- only entries should be made here.
The Discussion Thread can be found HERE.
A Voting Thread will be posted and stickied when that period begins.
We also have an Index of previous challenges HERE.
IMPORTANT: The rules may change from one challenge to another, but I'd like to let everyone know what the base rules are. These may grow as we move on (and have since the 1st challenge), so feel free to give feedback in the discussion thread about what should be added!
***If you are unable to push the "publish" button at this time due to timezones/ work schedules, please wait until the latest possible moment before this day/time. Also, if you need to publish your mission to test things, that is fine too, but please make sure to unpublish after testing is complete.
