That said, I think it's a good topic; just cut the end off past "danger," and make it "not to mention other unforeseen ramifications..." or some such.

Fair one, how about this;

While investigating a 1,000-year-old derelict ship, you discover something in this ancient treasure so truly unbelievable, that it would inspire any starship officer and cause you to never look at the stars in the same way again.

Nice and obscure, just how we want it.
It could be you encounter an Ancient love story or the heroic actions of a long dead Captain of a long lost NX class ship, to quote Cable Guy; "There's no end to the possibilities".

Yeah, I think that one's much better than the first one. And... if an author doooooooees... feel compelled to do a super galaxy shaking story... they still can.

I would change "unbelievable" to "wonderous"

But yes, it reads very well.


Allow me to tweak it a bit:

haha that was what I put originally but I wanted it abit more open for the Klingon fans lol
I guess great minds think alike :wink:
It was the episode 'Booby Trap' in TNG that gave me the idea, I love the thought of exploring and where better than a mysterious ancient ship or a partly buried temple on a jungle planet, only to have a 'situation' develop and lead you on an adventure or 'trek across the stars' :smile:

That's why I did three completly differant ones which I can change to suit the story lol Plus it will save me time as I will only have a week to make it before I have to leave for the Olympics, I'll have to teach my mum how to publish it for me, no way I'm trusting my room mate after what she did! lol


As it's a couple of days till it all begins again, I knocked this up; Challenge 4 Poster.
I think I'm getting a little restless here! lol

Hi Captains,

I am about to post Foundry Challenge #4, but I wanted to let you all know a few things first :smile:

First, I've definitely taken the feedback surrounding waiting until Season 6's launch into consideration, but have decided that we will march forward with challenge #4 starting today This challenge will run for 6 weeks, so there is time to check out the new tools on Tribble and when they launch with Season 6 (since it's launch ETA per the State of the Game is July).

Second, I have selected a backstory based on ideas submitted in this thread. Check out the challenge thread as soon as it is up and stickied in the "Foundry Mission Database" forums in just a bit.

Lastly, I want to thank the entire Foundry community. Y'all are really awesome, and it's an honor and a privilege to run these challenges and to 'work' closely with you all.

Cheers,

Brandon =/\=
