Watching the forums and Reddit, stumbled upon this little thing that seemed like a thing to share:

Instructions on How To Create A Screenshot & Insert It Here:

Good luck to everyone who enters!

Ok, so I’m going to basically blame this all on CaptPFDennis here (its not really his fault, but he needs some blaming because Filbones isn’t around regularly enough anymore to point a finger at).  The winner has been chosen and he is <drumroll>

Chaddy18!

Unto him shall be bestowed the TalShiar Ship. Everyone else who participated though check your mail, you should have a goodie or 2 contained within.

 

Thanks to everyone participating and thanks for your patience!

Alpha FlightWinner

 

Mission Title : Alpha Flight

Author : @RemairTamec

Faction : Federation

Level Requirements : 31+

Requirements : Shuttle Based Mission


2nd Place:

3rd Place : “Beneath the Skin” by @P_Sutherland

Congratulations to @RemairTamec for winning the Foundry Challenge #7 – Shuttle Challenge. Good job to all authors for entries in the Shuttle Challenge and I can’t wait to see and Review Foundry Challenge #8.

“Rellimtime’s Foundry Mission Review” will continue on future Foundry Challenges; I will also be covering future New Spotlight Missions.


Follow me on : TwitterFacebook

In a thread at the STO forum, BranFlakes agreed to the sentiment expressed by HippieJohn and others:

Challenge #8 will be postponed until further notice, unfortunately.

Fortunately, we are working on resolutions to many of the big, outstanding Foundry issues (crashes, KDF creation, etc.) and hope to have those live in an upcoming patch. Watch for patch notes and updates from Frost!

Cheers,

Brandon =/\=

 

As a participant in the last challenge, I think this is a wise move.  Challenge #7 was pretty much ruined by bugs, downtime, a loss of votes, and a general lack of participation post LoR.   Beware of the Foundry Challenge.

PrimetimeUGC, during the last show, advertised our first Foundry Challenge.

Here are the details:

Theme: We want to see a story mission with very little or no use of combat.

The idea being to draw the player in and engage him/her without all the shooting.

The entry must be 30-45 minutes in length, and be a Federation mission.

Authors have until August 16th, 2013 to publish their missions.

And, please, only one entry per author.

That’s all.

1st prize will be a Tal Shiar Adapted Destroyer. That’s right. We are awarding the

author of a very peaceful mission, an advanced battleship. 2nd and 3rd prizes will

also be awarded. These will range from Mirror Ha’apax Warbirds and/or Mirror

Science or Assault Vessels. Email us your ingame handle and mission name and/or

ID to:   

mailbag@PrimetimeUGC.com

Also feel free to email us with any questions.

 

Good Luck and Have fun.

A huge Zone of Darkness has been detected deep within Cardassian Space on a direct course that intercepts many highly populated planets from Cardassia Prime to New Romulas.

It is so vast it shifts the gravity-well of local stars and can block out all sensor readings in and around entire star systems.

Visual recordings of the engulfed star have revealed there IS a body at the center of this veil and several Cardassian ships have gone missing attempting to intercept it.

Now Starfleet has made it ‘your turn’ to face this Goliath, What lies at the center of this blackness, why is it destroying life and are you ready to go where no man has gone before?
