July Art Challenge: The Unthinkable!

This month you have to think outside the box. Think of something that could but should not happen in Trek. Like earth destroyed, which we saw that on Enterprise Shockwave. Or the Borg assimilated earth completely in First contact. Or a 3 nacelled galaxy class ship! WTF lol (it did look cool though!)

Whether its a canon; in-universe idea. Or something that you believe CBS/Paramount would never agree to having on the show. It can be as abstract and surreal as you want as long as it shows our beloved crew or ships in it. No crossovers with other sci fi though. I'm sure we'd all love to see the Enterprise D come head to head against an Imperial Star Destroyer.

It should have a big impact on first viewing as the Unthinkable!

Interesting topic! It's going to take some hard thinking to come up with something.

That'd be a short fight. Picard would probably still be saying "Can't we all just get along?" while TIE fighters blow old D to smithereens.

But enough about my fantasies...

Re: July Art Challenge: The Unthinkable!

Heh...I doubt the TIE weapons or SD turbo lasers would be able to penetrate the E-D's navigational shields, much less put a dent in her hull before point-defense phasers kicked in and cleared a path without so much as breaking a sweat.

The evidence is quite debatable.

It's interesting when apples to apples comparisons are made, such as the ability to destroy an asteroid.

E-D never displayed "point-defense phasers". It just had phasers. And lots of shit got past E-D's navigation shields. That's why it relies on actual shields. The type of things Star Destroyer turbolasers blast through on a regular basis. The whole fucking sereis started with a star destroyer doing exactly that to a rebel blockade runner.

Re: July Art Challenge: The Unthinkable!

^^^ When I refer to point defense phasers, I'm not referring to a different kind of phaser emitter, but rather a different application of the existing phaser system, using limited, short-burst phaser shots against numerous small targets. This is exactly what the Enterprise-D used against the Lysians in the episode "Conundrum". There is precedence for this. There is also precedence for cluster photon torpedoes that could be used as an effective anti-spacecraft weapon during an approaching swarm.

I don't care how many forward-facing turbo laser batteries (emphasis on lasers, BtW) a SD has. Once their TIE pickets are wiped out, beaming a single magnetic bottle containing a spoonful of antimatter in the SD's main engine core will make short work of it.

And transporter beams got scrambled and intercepted constantly, throughout every trek series. What makes you think imperials can't figure out how to do it too?

Hey, guys, you're turnimg this into a Trek Tech thread and missing the point of the challenge; it doesn't matter who has the bigger balls, Starfleet or Empire: this is a Trekverse-only challenge.

Re: July Art Challenge: The Unthinkable!

And heeeeeerree we are, the end o' the month! Be sure you send your entry to me by midnight (PDT) @ ptrope at gmail dot com. And since I'll be in the dentist's care tomorrow and don't know the outcome yet, I'm going to work real hard to get the challenge up tonight while I'm not either in pain or under sedation .

Operators are standing! Bye!
