Foundry Challenge #7 : Small Craft Escapades
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 seventh Foundry Challenge: Small Craft Escapades
For this Foundry Challenge, create a mission that features content designed for and around a player being in a small craft (shuttle, fighter, etc). There is no background story you must build off of, so feel free to get as creative as you'd like.
You will have from today, Wednesday, March 27th, until Wednesday, May 8th at 10am PDT to make your Foundry mission and reply to this thread with its information in the following format:
Starting on Wednesday, May 8th, around 10AM PDT, 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.
Mission Title: Beneath the Skin
Level Requirement: 16+
Mission Summary: While your ship is in port being repaired and upgraded. Starfleet wants you to re-chart a system inside the Delta Volanis Cluster. The last ship to visit the system was a colony freighter in 2398. Since then the Federation colony has received few guests. Head into the Delta Volanis Cluster to begin your mission.
A routine assignment. What could go wrong?

Mission Title: Inner Space
Your @Handle: @rsmudger
Faction: Federation (& Klingon if winner)
Level Requirement: 31+
Mission Summary: A huge Zone of Darkness has been detected deep within Cardassian Space on a direct course that intercepts many highly populated planets from Cardassia Prime to New Romulas.
It is so vast it shifts the gravity-well of local stars and can block out all sensor readings in and around entire star systems.
Visual recordings of the engulfed star have revealed there IS a body at the center of this veil and several Cardassian ships have gone missing attempting to intercept it.
Now Starfleet has made it 'your turn' to face this Goliath, What lies at the center of this blackness, why is it destroying life and are you ready to go where no man has gone before?
Entry will be for the Federation. If I win, I will also release a Klingon version called qoD’ logh.
