I do enjoy the pseudoscience in trek as opposed to the "it just works" philosophy of Star Wars... but then again I love the philosophy and faith aspect of Star Wars and the Jedi that was missing from Star Trek until the introduction of the Bajoran people... thus the reason I will be half vulcan half bajoran in STO...

beta keys are also highly desired by many of the STO forum members. It is a limited gift of sorts to the lucky few that receive them.

As first, congrats to the winner.

second I know I couldn't win:p. My story was too long (666 words with my name and address, so no hard feeling there. All thaw, I think first version of contest required 700 words. Could Criptic give us some of reasons on their decision.

third: I hope there will be more this kind of contest. It will bring lot (from winers and other) of idea to the dev-team.

fourth: I hope Criptic will oppen page with best (let's say best 10 entrance).

fifth: congratulations to the winner.

Actually, this one isn't over yet. We entrants await the announcement of two runner-up prize winners sometime in the next week, who won't get Beta keys but will have (I believe) the honor of a special title in their forum signature.

Thalasi, assuming he was entitled to both the Beta key and the title, didn't seem to get a signature title right away and still does not have one to my knowledge, and has fallen silent in this thread after a couple posts (having 5 posts total to date, he is not a prolific STO forum poster), so there is no way of knowing at what point this prize is effectuated.

Stories that are obviously disqualified are fine.

It is not clear if posting a currently-entered story would disqualify one for being a (in this case 2nd place) winner. Perhaps Awen could clear that up, thanks in advance.

If in doubt, I'd suggest not posting just yet.
