Seeing as how the contests always sparked some really good stories, I'm going to take a punt and try to relaunch them for any and all who wish to enter. The theme is going to be very broad, encompassing the novelverse tavern known as "The Captain's Table", an elite drinking establishment open to Captain's only, though spans the centuries and is run by the enigmatic Cap. There are only two things you need to keep in mind with this: 1. The protagonist must hold the rank of Captain (or equivalent), 2. If possible stories should be in First Person, though other perspectives will also be acceptable, 3. The Captain must tell a story about a significant incident (good or bad) in their past. Other than that your POV character can be from canon or your own fiction, the story they tell the other patrons can be about anything, but they are the focus of it. Maybe they saved a planet from certain doom, maybe they hunted down the most dangerous criminal in the Romulan Neutral Zone, maybe they recount their wedding day or the birth of their first child. The story they tell must be of importance to them. RULES: - Stories must be your original work and cannot have been posted here previously (all new/original works). - 15,000 word limit. - Remember to post a link to your story in this thread. - Submission date: Sunday 31st, July 2016 at 23:59 (BST).
