    Prepare to shock! Terrify! and Amaze! We all love the cheesy over-the-top posters they did for the scifi and horror b-movies of decades past. The studios would put just about anything on those posters to get people into the theaters.

    So your challenge for April is to create a b-movie style poster for any Trek episode, series, movie or whatever of your choosing. The more outrageous, the better!

    Here's a couple of links for inspiration:

    I won't be entering this, of course (it's from the 2/2004 forum challenge), but you've obviously hit on one of my favorite challenges :techman:

    Not entered a challenge here before, so I'm unsure of the process. Do I post my entry here, or send it to someone?

    Generally, each person starts their own thread to show off their entry or get feedback for improvements. Near the end of the month when your entry is ready, e-mail it to our mod Ptrope: ptrope "at" gmail "dot" com.

    Hellz yeah!! When I was wrestling ideas for my competition, one of my ideas was to create an indie movie poster (which I had already created years ago). This idea is much cooler!

    Great idea B.J.!!

    And Ptrope, that poster is awesome! :techman:

    edit:
    B.J., the name of our fictional movie....is it limited to a series or episode name? Like Ptropes image? Or can people just come up with whatever?

    I'm game for whatever you come up with, as long as it's Trek related. :techman:

    Cool. So just to be clear....I can mix and match characters from different eps to come up with a movie poster?
