What's that presence you just felt in the dimly lit corridor? Why do vessels keep disappearing in that certain part of space? Where did that special friend go when he told you that "the Academy had a different course in mind for him"? What if Roddenberry didn't invent Star Trek, with all its optimism, but Lovecraft instead? What if Voyager was primarily penned by Stephen King? What if Starfleet was inspired by 1984? This flash contest will let those, who dare, explore the dark and twisted parts of the Star Trek universe. Or is this the Horrorverse alternate reality? You decide. Let us shiver, let us scream, give us something that will wake us from our dream. Give us a reason to be afraid of the infinite dark of space! There are almost no rules this time. If you horror up an existing design you had lying around, that's fine by me. Existing horrorfied design are not allowed, however! Deadline is October 31st!
