So crossovers and/or non-Star Trek are allowed?
I'll allow crossovers but not a story that's completely non-Trek. Keep it in the Trek universe somehow - but it certainly doesn't have to be consistent with canon.

I'm working on something-and considering scrapping it to do a couple of other ideas I had-this one seems to be causing an over-abundance of ideas. LOL.
You've a few weeks - write all of them!

EDIT: sorry must start paying attention and not spamming the thread

What about stuff like the salt vampire, the cloud that feeds on rage or Redjac? Would they count?
Yes, I think so - just so long as the story does involve some belief that they are paranormal/supernatural, even if they're proved to be natural by the end.

I know Trek isn't really a universe that has much time for the supernatural, since they have the technology to prove most things otherwise, but I figure there's still room for people to believe in ghosts and things that go bump in the night.

There's still unanswered questions there - I want the story about how the safeties were disengaged and then re-engaged...

I know what you mean. My story, Revenant, would have been choice.

Both those stories immediately came to mind when I read this challenge. I was concerned that my initial ideas where too close to either one to be considered original.

Great avatar, by the way, Starkers. Way to keep with this month's challenge theme.

Re: October Writing Challenge - Ghosts!

I almost wish I could enter my current Bluefin story, "Ghost in the Machine." Unfortunately, it's much too long and probably won't be finished by Halloween.

I do have an idea for a short story, but I don't know if I'll have time to flesh it out. I'm looking forward to the entries - I love a good ghost story!

Re: October Writing Challenge - Ghosts!

This is my entry..

STAR TREK; FINAL REVISION

The reason I did it in 'report' form was because I had never seen one done as a 'report'. So, not a traditional story. Who ever said I was traditional???

Wow! It's so cool to see that this is still going. How long has it been? (It seems like about three years to me.)

It's good to see that some things don't change. I look forward to reading and voting.

Yeah, I think this is probably our three year anniversary - I think the winning entries thread starts with the October contest for 2005!

Hey, feel free to enter too, Scatta
