Hi all!

As today marks the anniversary of Barlow's Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace this contest's theme will be independence. While Barlow used it as a political term don't hesitate to explore it in all its variants and more figuratively.
Your story should be original work (i.e. not posted or published so far) and it should be finished when you post it. You need to post a link to your story in this thread to participate in the challenge.
Apart from that, everything goes, original or canon characters, alternate universes, short story or lengthy saga, it's up to you.

As February is so short and we're already a week into it this contest will also cover the month of March. The deadline is March 28th 23:59 CET so that we'll have enough time for voting and starting the next challenge on time.
I'm working on something. It's in the very early stages--I have a little bit of an outline, some notes, and about two paragraphs. But I just wanted to make sure that I understood the rules. This will be my first piece of fiction for the site. I hope I get it done in time. I'm very excited, I haven't done any creative writing in nearly 10 years. So this should be interesting.

All I have to do is submit my piece of work in this thread, right? And I am allowed to just make up an alien species, correct? I'm not even sure if Starfleet will be in it. I don't know yet where this is going. Does it have to have established lore in it?
