Foundry Challenge #6 - Voting Begins Today (02/27)!
 
From today until Wednesday, March 20th, at 10AM PST, voting is open for Foundry Challenge #6!

Since mid-January, Foundry authors have been storyboarding, developing, and designing Foundry missions for our most recent challenge, Beyond the Web. More information about the challenge can be found here.

The following is a list of submitted missions to be reviewed -- if you are going to play them and vote, we ask that you please give everyone a fair chance and play through each mission. They should all be around 30 minutes of gameplay, but should take no longer than 45 minutes to complete. If you can play and complete one mission a day/ every-other day, you will be able to play them all before the voting period ends.

Once you have played through them, please send an in-game mail to me (@PWE_BranFlakes) with the mission you feel should win this challenge. Unless you play through all of the missions pretty quickly, I should not be getting votes until late next week/ the week after that.

You may only vote once and, if you are one of the participants, may not vote for your own mission. Rallying people from your fleet/ friend group to vote for your, or any other, mission is discouraged and should be apparent from the votes that come in -- encourage them to play through all of the missions and really choose the one they feel best told the story. This is all for fun, and while there is a small prize to be awarded to the winner (STO Promo Points for the C-Store and their mission featured in the spotlight), we know all of us are ethical, honest Trekkers and Trekkies.

For information about the Foundry, and how to play missions, check out this Guest Blog by StarbaseUGC.

So, without future ado, here is the list of entrants (along with the background story):

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.

For this Foundry Challenge, create a mission that features the Tholians.

Foundry Challenge #6 Entry Missions:

This mission will take you deep into horror. The theatre? New Romulus. The dreams? A better world. What you will see? Murder, torture, and a people with blood on its hand - against its will. And you, being forced to solve a major crisis which could change forever the face of the quadrant.
