Writing Challenge - Autumn 2014 - Desperation

Autumn 2014 challenge: Desperation

Your challenge is to write about a desperate situation, whatever that may be. Civilian, Starfleet, military, criminal? Serious or amusing? Major or minor? Happy ending? Sad one? Puzzling one? Your choice.

And now, The Rules:
  • Word limit: 10,000 words max, with a little wiggle room above if needed.
  • Story must be original for this month’s challenge, nothing posted here before please.
  • Let’s keep the challenge in the Trek arena, canon or your personal fic.
  • No crossovers, please.
  • Only complete stories will be eligible; finishing the story before posting it is a good idea.
  • Post a link to your entry in this thread when you’re done.
  • Contest to run until 11:59 PM (US Eastern Standard Time) October 27th, with voting to follow from October 28th to October 31st.
Any questions can be directed to me here or via PM.

Have fun with it.

Let's get desperate!

Cool!!!!

I've always wanted to write a Trek story. I've dabbled with different ideas over the years.

I used to be a newspaper journalist, so I need to get back into writing anyway. Even if it's just for myself...

Have at it!

BTW I wrote a story (I think it's a few years old by now) with this very title, and it was about mixed parents - he was human, she was alien - trying to toilet train their four-year-old hybrid daughter.
