    It's two ... two ... two mints in one!

    Well, as you can see, folks dropped some serious coin here this month, because B.J. brought a serious challenge: the Challenge Coin. A long tradition in the here-and-now, he proposed the tradition would continue into the next century and beyond (although, without pockets, one has to wonder where the Starfleet officers will keep them! ;)).

    So take a look at our newly-minted contestants, and maybe even flip a coin!

    Very hard choice. Starscape's is incredibly well rendered. And I love the detail on the coin's edge. But I just love the idea of Shaw's coin. Having all the captain's names is a thing of beauty. And I love that the arc of the planetoid beyond continues between the obverse and reverse side's of the coin. Very nice.

    And the winner of the coin toss is:

    Shaw! Squeaking out a well-deserved victory from a selection of deserving entries; it was a tough field this time, as tough as any in recent memory.

    Congratulations, Shaw! We hope you had your thinking cap on (clearly you did while minting your entry) because now it's up to you to set the stage for October's TrekArt challenge.

    Thanks, too, to everyone who entered and to those who voted, as well. :bolian: (I'd love to have any of these in a case on my mantle ;)).

    :eek: Wow! Thanks everyone for a great contest. I can hardly believe I won considering how great the other entries were.

    Let me consult with Ptrope on this and see what we can come up with. This was not only my first win, but my first entry too, so I'm trying to get up to speed on this stuff.

    Thanks again! :techman:
