    We lost some good ones this year. Odo is gone, Nog, the kid from Miri...
    So this contest will be stories about characters where the actor is no longer with us.
    Any actor- Nimoy, Kelley, Doohan etc are fine to use. Write about their characters-and try to stay true to the characters as they portrayed them.
    Let's try to keep it to 5000 words, as modern society has issues with concentrating longer than that(LOL).
    New or used stories are fine. Have fun, and happy holidays!

    Great theme idea. Looking forward to reading the entries.

    @SLWatson Challenge entries are supoosed to have their own thread each. Could you please post your story in a separate thread and then just post a link here? I can't separate it into a new thread and don't just want to delete the post.

    Seriously, I know we had a holiday buried in the middle, but only SL Watson has a story? Can we get some more entries?

    Is anyone working on a story? If so, let us know in the thread, please.

    I notice only now that there's no deadline mentioned in the OP. What did you originally have in mind, @Mistral ?

    Apologies, noble lords and ladies, but I find my muse has fallen silent and I have no ideas that would fit the challenge.

    Hm. Should we stretch the submission period into February?

    There are so many Trek characters to write for within the framework of this challenge: TOS Spock, McCoy, Chekov from the new movies, Odo, Nog - just to name a few off the top of my head. I can't believe nobody else can come up with a story around one of them.

    So, if there is anyone else still working on a story please say so in this thread. Otherwise, I'll be closing submissions tomorrow evening/night (about 24 hours from now) and put up the voting thread.
