From today until Wednesday, September 26th, at 10AM PDT, voting is open for Foundry Challenge #4!

Since late June, Foundry authors have been storyboarding, developing, and designing Foundry missions for our most recent challenge, Ancient Treasures. More information about the challenge can be found here.

The following is a list of submitted missions to be reviewed -- if you are going to play them and vote, we ask that you please give everyone a fair chance and play through each mission. They should all be around 30 minutes of gameplay, but should take no longer than 45 minutes to complete. If you can play and complete one (1) mission a day, you will be able to play them all before the voting period ends.

Once you have played through them, please send an in-game mail to @PWE_BranFlakes (STO?s Community Manager) with the mission you feel should win this month's challenge. Unless you play through all of the missions pretty quickly, he should not be getting votes until late next week/ the week after that.

You may only vote once and, if you are one of the participants, may not vote for your own mission. Rallying people from your fleet/ friend group to vote for your, or any other, 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 to the winner (STO Promo Points for the C-Store), we know all of us are ethical, honest Trekkers and Trekkies.

For information about the Foundry, and how to play missions, check out this Guest Blog by StarbaseUGC.

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