Welcome to a Special Edition of the New Month Long Writer's Challenge!
Today we start the one month run of the sixty-eighth Literary Challenge: STO Halloween.
We will be running this event from the 10/01 to the 10/31.
You may enter 1 story for this topic over the course of the net month.
This month, our topic will be a single storyline...
Star Trek Online Halloween
The ancient tradition of Terran Fall Harvest Celebrations, Spirit Worship, and the practice of 'Trick or Treat' has long been studied by allies of the Federation. With our favorite holiday fast approaching, we want to see what great stories you can come up with that celebrate the concept of Halloween, either from a human perspective, or from that of any of the species in STO. Do the Klingons or Romulans have similar cultural traditions? Do the Bajorans? The Caitians? The Orions? The Talaxians? Now is your chance to invent something special just in time for the holiday.
This is the writer's thread -- only entries should be made here.
