New Year’s Eve

John Ordover announced yesterday the winners of this year’s Star Trek: Strange New Worlds contest. Of the five stories I submitted for consideration, none made the final cut.

I thought I had a real shot with “Memorial Day” The story of Jake Sisko and the Cestus III Dominion War Memorial wasn’t the incestuous continuity porn fanwank crap that passes for the prototypical Strange New Worlds story. It was something else entirely, so much so that even I’m not sure it was a Star Trek story anymore.

Damn.

  1. Great read, Allyn – even if I’m not really into baseball.

    Too bad your story wasn’t chosen. Don’t forget to try again next year! 🙂

    ! Golly, I feel less bad about my story now. LOL.

    I’m going to read Memorial later today–I’m being pushed away from the computer. Thanks for sharing your perspective.
