Star Trek Challenge Stories by Robert Bruce Scott
[ - ]
Summary:

At the time of this posting I've only responded to two challenges on Trek BBS. But I plan to respond to more, so creating this series as a handy place to lodge them.

rn

I'm making this a moderated series, so other writers may submit their short story responses to various writing challenges - whether the challenge is issued on Trek BBS or any other platform.

  • Rules:
  • rn
  • 1) I'm the editor as well as moderator. If your story has grammatical/spelling/useage errors, I will point those out and expect you to correct them before I'll accept and publish the entry.
  • rn
  • 2) I will reject stories I find to be either non-Trek or counter to the general Trek-ethos (and yes, I'll be the judge of that!) I'm pretty open minded, but if it's just dripping with profanity or porn, I'm not going to publish it.
  • rn
  • 3) I don't have to like it to publish it. Again, I'm pretty open-minded, so if you have the guts to submit it, I'm fairly likely to publish it (as long as it meets the guidelines above).

    Summary:

    Here's a challenge, that's narrower in scope than most, but hopefully a fun and challenging . . . challenge.


    Write a story that features Kirk, Spock, and McCoy. You can bring in other characters, but those three must be featured. It can be dramatic, funny, tragic, laid back, etc. - your choice. No word limit, but I suggest a short story rather than a novella. Deadline to submit your entry is June 26. Voting will end June 30.

     

    The Horta
