Its the other way round. you cant reskin a non tholian ship to look tholian or reskin one type of tholian ship to look like another.

Yes, you CAN re-skin them, I mean there are no Tholians to re-skin them as--I worded the post badly.

The issue is we can't put down a single NPC and reskin it as a Tholian, and as such cannot make a traditional talk to contact. Nor can we put down a lower-level combat mob, say a gorn, and reskin them as Tholians, to lower the playable level of the mission. Nor can we put down a friendly mob and reskin it as a Tholian, so no Tholian allies.

Oh, ok. I guess I misunderstood. I was thinking that you said we couldn't make tholians look like something else.

Ok, no friendlies, got it. Not even pulling a jabba-the-hut C3PO translator thing because invisible walls won't work? Has in the past for me... Ground only though.

Here is an official qualification question. Can we make this Tholian mission without having one Tholian in it, just references? Because I have this inkling of a spark of an idea. Asking because this will be my first challenge.

Should still be able to pull the Invisible Wall trick on the ground.

Personally , I only see the words "feature the Tholians" in it's own way that's pretty broad.
I for one would love to see a mission with no Tholian enemy mobs in the contest.

Believe me when I say your vote of appreciation is reassuring. But we all know how things change because the foundry can't do it. Should anyone need a ground contact though that could be the answer. Just a very annoying number of "he said"s.

I have a question that's not Tholian-related. ()

If my submission wins, it becomes a Spotlight mission. But since I didn't technically "submit it for spotlighting", do I still retain the ability to edit it?

One of the prizes is that your mission becomes a spotlight mission, but in order for that to happen, you would need to submit it. If you choose not to submit it, we wouldn't be able to spotlight it.
