July Challenge Theme: Captain of the Io

First off: Thanks to all those that posted for the previous month's challenge.

Your mission if you chose to accept or not - to write about any Captain of the USS Io, the sister ship to the USS Titan. It can be any event in the mysterious (and unnamed) Captain's life being told of the USS Io, before the Captain gets to the USS Io, his/her promotion after the USS Io, someone even showing interest in applying to be the Captain of the Io, or even a brief communication to the Captain of the Io from some other ship.

Here are the Rules: (As borrowed from Rush's rules)

The word limit - a 7,000 word limit.

Do not reuse a tale previously posted in TrekBBS.

The stories must be your own work.

It must be in the Star Trek universe, with Star Trek characters - any era you wish. You may use established canon, the TrekLit chronology, and your own fanfic.

Post a link to your story on this thread, when you've finished it.

The submission deadline will be: Sunday, July 30th, 11:59 PM Hawaii Standard Time.

Voting will take place July 31st-August 1st. There will be a run-off, if there's a tie.

Extremely limiting. Not much there for folks who haven't read the Titan books.

Much as I liked Titan, that continuity is only marginally compatible with my own continuity and I don't want to try and shoehorn it.

I might still try something this month, if only because Vulcans are awesome.

Sigh.

All right - if that is too limiting then as an amendment just write about justice. Would that be acceptable?

While I don't have an entry, I know a friend of mine that I will be VERY much pressuring to enter, should you be interested in using that topic.

Re: July Challenge Theme: Captain of the Io

I think that would be a better idea. Not only would let people to be fully creative with their stories, but also would result in varied stories.

I might actually have an idea for "justice" The idea is not new, but the story hasn't been written yet.

Re: July Challenge Theme: Captain of the Io

All right then. The monthly challenge for July is two fold:

1. Write about any Captain of the USS Io, the sister ship to the USS Titan. It can be any event in the mysterious (and unnamed) Captain's life being told of the USS Io, before the Captain gets to the USS Io, his/her promotion after the USS Io, someone even showing interest in applying to be the Captain of the Io, or even a brief communication to the Captain of the Io from some other ship.

2. "Justice"

The same rules as above will follow.

Re: July Challenge Theme: Captain of the Io

Not to be dense, but is the challenge "captain of the Io" AND "justice", or is it "captain of the Io" OR "justice"?

Re: July Challenge Theme: Captain of the Io

What's so limiting about making a story about a titan class ship named Io and involving the current/once/future captain? Sounds challenging to me.

So you'll be posting a story then, to show us all how it's done?
