    Gul Re'jal is suspecting she's on the wrong space
    I still can’t believe that this has happened, but obviously the honour of naming the theme for this month’s challenge fell on me. So here it is:


    Dilemma


    It may be a big thing—like which planet to save, or a small thing—like the choice between tea or coffee for breakfast. And anything in-between. It’s all up to you and your characters.


    Some rules:

    - the word limit: 7000 words max.
    - only stories written for this challenge, no reusing older stories
    - Star Trek universe, any era, any ship, any crew; no crossovers, though--let’s keep it fully understandable for Trekkies without knowledge of other franchises
    - only stories finished before the deadline will be entered in the voting poll; not a rule but a suggestion: please try to post completed entries instead of posting separate chapters as they are being written
    - the deadline is 30th of October 2011, 23:59 GMT. Voting will take place 31st Oct-2nd Nov.
    - don’t forget to post the link to your story in this thread


    Questions? Comments? Complaints? Post them here or PM me.

    Good luck and enjoy writing :)

    A little teaser.

    Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

    Even When...

    Synopsis: While having lunch with Doctor Julian Bashir, the ever mysterious Garak regales him with a story of a choice he had to make that could have had dire repercussions for Cardassia, the homeworld he has been exiled from.

    Looking for a Beta for my Challenge Story to correct time-, spelling- and grammar mistakes. The story is very short, only around 900 words/ a little over 2 pages. If somebody who is a native speaker of English or very good in English has a little time to spare to look over it, that would be great! :)

    Ack, I thought the deadline was the 31st. Too late to drop mine in the mix?

    EDIT: nevermind, just saw that the poll was up. Well nuts, maybe next month...

    Sorry :(

    I posted the voting thread a few hours after the deadline, but it's already there and even voting has started.

    I hope it won't stop you from posting your story anyway, even if not as an entry.
