I want to do these but the last one and this one seem restrictive.

For example i had an anomoly story i would love to have posted. but it was more than just a log entry and it was not based on the background listed. This time again its a Shore Leave story. OKies but what if i dont want my ship and crew coming off of the "assignment" suggested in the listing. and what if it is more than just a log entry?

You say there is no right or wrong answer.

So do we have more wiggle room in our stories or do we have to live by the exact premis in the listing?

Rayven, this is all for a bit of fun, so I see no reason why you couldn't post your existing story. BranFlakes also said that we should put it in a Captain's Log style entry, but if you read some of the other entries, they haven't done that.

As Bort1980 said, this is all for fun so you may write however you would like The background listed is just to give writers a platform to start from. I will make sure to add a "rule" in the next one that states that while I provide a background, you can tell any story on the topic you would like.

Cheers,
