    Well, a New Year is upon us and maybe some of us (like a certain Discovery character) are planning on spreading our wings and trying something different this year by joining a new organisation or club.

    Star Trek has its fair share of secret or clandestine organisations from the Tal Shiar to the Obsidian Order or Section 31. But perhaps there's other, more benign, exclusive clubs in the Star Trek universe: do the Vulcan's have a Magic Circle? Is there a club for Starfleet Chief Engineers, where they can meet up and bemoan the state of their engines? A Klingon 'Fight Club'?

    The challenge this month is to depict a facet of your chosen secret society within the Star Trek universe, be it a logo, recruitment poster, a dedicated starship, a meeting of members, a secret greeting or ceremony, etc.


    Deadline for entries is midnight on 31st January.


    The Rules™ (from the Art Challenge Guidelines):
    • the artwork you submit should be created during the month of the challenge
    • only one final image can be submitted (although it may contain multiple views)
    • your final entry should be posted in this thread (although dedicated WIP threads are appreciated)
    Any questions or suggestions?


    Have fun! :)

    I just had a neat idea. Hopefully I'll get to do it.

    Nice work @Finn. :bolian:

    Let me know which one you want to submit as your final entry by the end of the month. Or you could combine them into a single image if you want to submit more than one.

    Surely if an organisation is secret there would be no such thing as a logo for them to advertise the fact its suppose to be secret.
    I went years before finally caving in and making a section 31 logo and that was only because it was a request.

    That aside some nice entries folks

    A secret society doesn't necessarily have to be a hidden one, it's usually defined as an organisation that conceals it's activities/inner workings from non-members. :)

    This one @Finn?


    A few days left to post your entries. I'm going to have to try and find some time to put an entry together, myself.

    Let me know if anyone needs an extra day or two extension.

    Finally found some time today to hammer out my idea. May I present to you the ring of the clandestine Starburst Society, a group of Starfleet Academy cadets who secretly perform the banned Kolvoord Starburst maneuver. Their motto – a play on the academy's Ex Astris Scientia – is Ex Astris Audacia.

    One of my old elementary teachers used to say I looked like Laurel when I was making faces.
