    Okay, it's time for a new challenge, so here it is . . .
    Create a story with an awkward situation. It might be humorous, it might be tense, it might be embarrassing . . . use your imagination!
    Examples: "Picard Day" on the Enterprise, Worf attempting social pleasantries, Spock's moment of joy when he finds out Kirk isn't dead, etc.
    Givens and druthers:
    • Star Trek related, from any era.
    • Canon or your own characters.
    • No word limit, but novels may be a bit much. Shorter is usually better for these challenges.
    • Have fun and good luck!

    Oddly enough, there's a little segment in my next Ranger story that might fit the bill, I might focus in on that for a short piece (rather than making it part of a larger story).

    When inspiration comes, you have to strike whilst the iron is hot.

    So I present the latest installment of the Border Service cutter Ranger, "Awkward Bedfellows".

    Enjoy :bolian:

    I, too, have had a segment in mind for my Police Cutter Fletcher story for a couple years, actually. Perhaps I'll skip ahead in that series and write the segment now.

    I would like to add my story "The Return" to the challenge.

    Prithee, is there an end date and voting period for the current contest?
