Welcome to the twenty-fifth edition of the Unofficial Literary Challenge: "Agents of Yesterday"! This ULC focuses on the upcoming Agents of Yesterday expansion, the Quarter life of the ULC and the 50th Anniversary of Star Trek!
"Agents of Yesterday"
"Temporal agents have delivered you a very important mission. An unknown captain of a 23rd century ship has been pulled forward through time to the 25th century. Your mission is to meet with them and acclimate them to your timeline. But the task is easier given than executed. With the captain's limited knowledge of threats like the Borg, the Dominion and the Iconians, they may be in more danger than they realize. Find them, bring them back safely and try to avoid any paradoxes if you can."
"When Spock tried to save Romulus with red matter to create an artificial black hole, the black hole swallowed both him and the Romulan known as Nero, seemingly killing them both. But Temporal Investigations claims that they actually traveled back in time and created a splinter timeline called the Kelvin Timeline. There, things are still somewhat the same, yet slightly different. Since it's creation, Temporal Investigations has tried to keep both timelines separate. But they have discovered that Spock, the Prime Spock, is still alive for now. But his health is failing and time is running out. You have been tasked to bring Spock home or, if the worst has come, bring back his remains."
"2410. The year when everything changes. The Nexus has reopened and your Captain has disappeared within. Your crew has followed into the Nexus and discovered that, while only moments passed outside, your captain has spent one hundred years in the Nexus in their own paradise. Write a log about how your captain spent that century in the Nexus. What was their paradise like? Who was there? Does your captain even want to leave?"
As usual, no NSFW content.
