Alright, twice in a row! (Not unheard of before....
Bit of a change of pace for this month, something a bit simpler. (Who knows, maybe we can get quite a few more entries this month.) For September, your task is to design a Challenge Coin. If you don't know what that is, follow this link (we'll wait): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Challenge_coin
Also, do a google image search for "challenge coin", and you'll get a lot of examples.
Whether it be in-universe or real life, it has to tie in to Trek somehow. Design one for the USS Defiant, or maybe see what the Klingon equivalent is, or perhaps design one for your local Trek club - use your imagination!
BTW, in real life, challenge coins are not exclusive to the military. Since I work for a defense contractor, I have several coins for programs that I've worked on.
One other thing, I was thinking that we should start adding the list of past challenges to each month's topic, just so we don't have to go digging for the history. I'll start it off, so whoever follows next month just has to copy and add the next line. There's a few blanks, but it's mostly complete. The August 2003 one somehow happened to get saved when we went to vbulletin.
