    The theme for this months art challenge is Egypt. I was thinking long and hard about a couple of ideas for this month's theme, but ancient Egyptians, pyramids, mummies and hieroglyphs have always fascinated me since I was a child. It's just something that inspires me and I love to dabble with. I hope you agree that it's a broad enough theme for everyone to work in.

    Maybe you can show us how the Borg would build their ships if they were Egyptians. Maybe you can reimagine familiar Treknology as Egyptian “steampunk” tech. Or maybe you'll let us see how Kirk & Spock beam down to a planet with a civilization strikingly similar to ancient Egypt. The possibilities are virtually endless. :)

    Are there any questions or suggestions? :)

    Sorry about the delay. We're a bit late this month, but I'm sure everyone will have ample time to join in. If necessary, we can always extend the submission period for a couple of days. Just let us know in this thread.

    Please don't forget to post your entry by July 28th in this very thread. I'll post the voting thread then.

    And now, have fun!

    Ooh, good one! And, for me, three weeks is plenty of time - I'll spend the first week or two procrastinating, then do everything in a rush during the last week, as usual :D

    :lol: Yeah, I'm just like that. Unfortunately. :scream:

    Yeah, hadn't thought about that. A mashup of Vulcan and Egyptian iconography would be awesome!

    Just a reminder to everyone who want to enter this month's challenge that you can do so until the end of the week. Unless anyone needs more time in which case we can think about extending this for a few days. If everything goes to plan, though, I will post the voting thread on Saturday.

    Also, please don't forget to post you final entries in this thread. Paging @Cyfa, @gazomg, @Laura Cynthia Chambers and everyone else who wants to enter.

    (Here's hoping I'll find time this week to finish my own entry. :scream:)

    Here's mine entry... that I've just googled and found here! :lol:

    (Just joking of course! But maybe it can inspire some legitimate entries.)

    - Yikes! My effort is quite similar. I don't know how I managed to not see (or overlook) that artwork when I googled Star Trek + Egypt?!

    Thanks for the reminder, M - I've got some free time on Thursday, so I'll put the finishing touches to mine and post it here then :)

    The actual image itself. It's just a measure to insure that the correct and final version of you entry is included in the poll.

    You spelled hieroglyphs wrong. But I guess whoever prepared that report could have done so also. I thought you were going to leave the image as is, but adding some (time meddling) context was a nice touch.

    - Oh, cripes! So I did. I mean, so the DTI did ;)
    I can't let it go, though, so I'm going to have to make a little amendment... Thanks for pointing it out.

    EDIT: OK, here's my REAL entry:
