... Star Trek watches you! This may be a crazy idea, but hey, what's a little crazy among fiends? Several years ago, DC Comics did an interesting Superman mini-series titled Superman: Red Son, where Superman landed in Soviet Russia (Ukraine, to be precise) instead of Kansas, and was raised on a collective farm. Now, imagine that Evgeny Roddenov (or some suitably-renamed Great Bear of the Galaxy) had created the show - what would it look like? The ship, the crew, the title - at a glance, it's Star Trek, but not as we know it. We've had mirror universes where the difference was a goatee and a bad attitude, but what if this ship had a Keptin Chekov and maybe even a multi-racial crew - even an alien! - plying the stars and bringing the benefits of communism (not necessarily capital "C" Communism) to the galaxy? The very best of Mother Russia (or "Amerika" in an alternate universe ) on TV every week during the Cold War ... Put on your 'thinkying keps' and design whatever strikes you - maybe it's a propaganda poster, maybe it's a uniform, maybe it's a phaser, or the Enterprise herself - just keep in mind it's Star Trek and try to make it recognizable as such.
