Edit: There is now 4 weeks left. I extended the deadline since we finally have competitors. New deadline is Oct. 15th

The prize is probably worth $150. I only have one contestant so far. Come on, authors. This is the most valuable contest prize in the history of contests.

Where are my contestants?

Update:

Missions and contestants:

"Original Life" by SBCouto
"Ghosts of the Polmar Ree" by Bazag
"Troiya of Elas" by HippieJohn

not finished?
"TBD" by drazursouthclaw
"TBD" by Leviathan99

Let me ask you something...

Would a mission that is linked to post 5 year mission count? I have one that involves TMP era characters on an old Connie that wasn't refit.

I'm been making a mission for the past ... well when ever the foundry came out.

It deals with TOS tech, but I don't have alot of time to work on it and it may be some time before it is finished.

It hasn't been made yet. It's one I've been tossing around. My big thing is that I'm a bit bored with the TOS costumes in the Foundry (no Nurse, Surgeon, Captain wraparound, etc.) and, from a story perspective, slotting missions somewhere into the five year mission. I'd like to approach the TOS film era a bit more, particularly as we HAVE those costumes and I've never seen an episode, novel, or mission that crossed over between TMP and another era. (I have seen a few novels and comics from the era. But I'd just like to give beige disco Starfleet a chance to shine.)

Eh, I'm not so good with the foundry, if I did make a TOS mission it would probably end up being short or pretty lame. That's the story of my one and only experimental mission I've made.

The lack of TOS assets is the real challenge of the contest for everyone. I'd play your TMP mission, but I could not accept it in this TOS contest.

Even using the TOS interior on the idea that it's a "holdover" that hasn't been retrofit?

Well, ok that works, but the basic rules of the contest are a TOS sequel or theme, basically a TOS-themed mission. So it could take place in any era, but it has to be related to one of the original episodes, etc.

So, it could be a cross-over, sure. It could be set in the TMP era. But the story/plot has to be TOS focused, you know?
