Calling all Foundry players and reviewers!

From today until next Wednesday, March 14th, at 10AM PST, voting is open for Foundry Challenge #1!

The following is a list of submitted missions to be reviewed -- if you are going to play them and vote, I ask that you please give everyone a fair chance and play through each mission. They should all be around 30 minutes, but should be no longer than 45 minutes. If you can play ~2 missions a day, you will be able to play them all.

Once you have played through them, please send me an in-game/ forum mail with the mission you feel should win this month's challenge. Unless you play through all of the missions pretty quickly, I should not be getting votes until late this week/ early next week.

You may only vote once and may not vote for your own mission. Rallying people from your fleet/ friend group to vote for your 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, I know all of us are ethical, honest people

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

Foundry Challenge #1 : Conundrum on Risa

While on shore leave on Risa, the murder of a Stahlonian diplomat takes place on the island you are visiting. This diplomat was recently involved in talks with the Federation and KDF to join forces in combating the Borg advancement in the Alpha Quadrant. The loss of this diplomat is a tradgedy, and will cause a step back in negotiations, as the Stahlonian government was already worried about getting involved.

As the most senior ranking officer on the island at the time of incident, you have been tasked with investigating the events that lead up to the murder, including finding the culprit. As you begin questioning the locals, you stumble across clues that seem to follow some sort of pattern. As the investigation continues, you begin to realize there seems to be a riddle of sorts involved.

Are we seeing a re-emergence of it's dark past, or is this a wholly new threat.

Mission Summary:

It begins as a typical day in Starfleet, a runaway shuttlecraft carrying the Stahlonion ambassador "Danil" on route to Risa must be stopped before it is crashed as a bomb into the island where an important delegation conference is being held, it should be easy to beam him off the shuttle but one problem exists--Stahlonions have a severe religious taboo- if one uses a transporter, they are considered "Dead" aka "Golems" walking soulless bodies that have been desecrated by the transporter.
