Welcome to DS9 Avatar Contest 173!! The themes for the new contest are: Episode: The Muse DS9 Theme: Tragic downfall Theme: Machines...with a smile (This can be either a cyborg or fully mechanical construct, but one that has emotions. Thought it might be fun to go against the stereotype of cybernetic = no soul that the Borg Collective does so well.) You have 10 days to enter, until Jan. 10th. Regular rules apply: 140 kb, 150x150 pix max size. Have fun!
