    Starfleet dominates Trek and we rarely catch a glimpse of the worlds outside of its walls and uniforms.

    Your challenge is to show us a bit of Federation civilian life far away from deltas, pips and duty shifts.

    Good luck.

    Will a schematic for a civilian spacecraft qualify, because I really specialize at designing vehicles, and usually don't enter contests where such designs won't apply?
    I was thinking of designing a SSTO spaceliner, something like either a 23rd or 24th equivalent to a Boeing 747, or in others words, a descendent of the ubiquitous airliner.

    Absolutely. I left it vague intentionally so people could focus on whatever aspect they're best at while still forcing them to branch a little out of the comfort zone of aztecked hulls and black gabardine.

    Okay then, I guess I'd better get started! :)

    I noticed that. If its not a starship design or a uniform design, most people here don't seem to give a damn about you.

    ^ a tip, don't tell a poster that nobody gives a damn about him when he is more well known than you are.

    ^^^I think smalltalk meant "you" in general "everybody" sense, not specifically Venardhi.

    Admiral2 is right--besides, I've already won a contest a long time ago. I think Venardhi's win is a great thing--so I don't need your tips, punk.

    An old professor of mine who called everybody punks, especially if they shopped at a Kmart, came to mind

    I reread it later and saw what you meant, though I wouldn't have included the last two words ;)
