    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!

    I'm not a Tom Clancy fan. Dad was. He used to read them like crazy when I was a kid.

    But I'm pretty sure a few of them were a dark take on the cold war, more gritty than most. I'll look into it and see if it can fit to a Trek episode title.

    I like your book cover idea, @The Green Monster - I've had a go at a Voyager cover just for fun:

    I also have some sketches reminiscent of @Atolm 's Demonic Enterprise but nowhere near as good, and based on a deep sea angler fish. I'm hoping I'll have time to come up with a finished image by the end of the month.

    ^Nice, but I believe one is supposed to make something as if it was created by someone else not associated with Trek, especially those whose work is darker than trek....

    The Clancy angle is a nice one! I'd say go for it :)

    The mentioning of those people in my opening post only was to give the participants an idea of where to take this. I'd be perfectly happy with that Haunting of Deck 12 image. Although I kinda want to see more frightened people I think... Star Trek Scream Queens yolo ^_^

    - Heh! Thank you, but yeah, it's a bit campy, isn't it? I didn't really give it much thought, and only posted it to see if I could (I haven't posted any images before and just wanted to give it a try).

    - Thanks! Although I don't think I want to use it as a submission. I've done a few more faux novel covers today - The TNG one may fit the bill? I'll put them in a separate post...

    I love the monsteriffic ships, Atolm!

    I had an instant inspiration this time - this may not be my ultimate design, but it's definitely the road I'm on ...

    Love the idea of this challenge! I had to throw something together for it. As of now, I think this may be my final entry, but further inspiration may strike.

    I love what you've done with the font CJCade. Are those blood splatters? A far off explosion? An evil transporter effect?! Very sinister.

    Thank you! I was thinking it could be a transporter effect, so you hit it spot on.

    "I've got blood down here," said ensign Evergreen.
    "I'm getting some strange readings from the Transporter Room," said Commander Soras.
    The doors burst open as an alien creature the likes of which neither had seen before burst forth from the transporter room and went for Commander Soras who desperately wished she hadn't opted for the tricorder. These were not the small little creatures they'd heard about in the emergency broadcast...
