This one will certainly be interesting to write. Can't wait to read the ones that other people post.

Currently taking a brief break from STO to play Champions Online, so I probably won't participate, but I'll definitely keep an eye on this thing to see what everyone comes up with.

Certainly considering it. We'll see how quickly the idea comes together.

Oh man, I said I didn't want a Borg on my crew, I guess I jinxed it by leaving it in the hands of the LCs

Nothing major from me this time, I wanted to keep this one short and punchy...

For ease of reference/visualization, here're the actors I would cast if I was filming this tomorrow...

T'Natra - Gal Gadot
Amanda Palmer - Courtney Cox
Brandon Mayer - Jason Lewis
Bellic Chanos - Vin Diesel
Rynar Lambert - Stephen Moyer
Ben Kincaid - Colin Farrell
Eleven of Twelve - Susanna Thompson

A short, sad entry by MarcusDKane. My only suggestion is to rework the following sentence. It's a bit clunky.

"As the doors closed, a silence fell on the bridge which could have been cut with a knife before Mayer discreetly cleared his throat."

It would read better if it were broken apart and rearranged slightly. Something like this:

"The doors closed and a silence thick enough to cut with a knife descended on the bridge. It hung there for a moment, broken only when Mayer discreetly cleared his throat."

Use your own words, of course, and mold it to your own pleasant style.

EDIT: Woah, it occurs to me this could be interpreted as being insulting! No way! I meant the story was short and that what happened in it was sad. Not that mdk's writing itself was sad. I liked it.
