Welcome to Unofficial Literary Challenge #44: "Worst Captain Ever". Experimenting with two prompts this month.Prompt 1: "Why Your Captain Is the Worst Captain Ever" by @proteusrex
Inspired by some of the threads on the forum and meant to be a tongue-in-cheek examination of your own character (no offense intended). Write a log where your Captain does something that violates the 'spirit' of the Federation. Do they do it by accident? Ignorance? Arrogance? Or does it have to be done for the greater good? And what happens when they get called out?Prompt 2: "Are You Trying to Tell Me Something?" by @masopw
Comms from Starfleet get 'lost'. Orders are 'misplaced', then found once you can't do anything about it. Supplies to your ship never arrive, or are incorrect, or consist of obsolete equipment. You get invited to meetings after the meeting occurred, or when it's in a sector that's so far away you'll never make it. Your suggestions to the brass get ignored.
Is somebody trying to tell you something? Is an Admiral very displeased at something you did? Or did the person who thought they'd
be in command of your ship find themselves at HQ with a lot of time on their hands and a big grudge against you?
As usual, no NSFW content.
