Announcing the winner of the Flashback week competition

A few weeks ago we ran a week-long even called Flashback week where we encouraged roleplayers and writers to think about the backstory of their character and write about a flashback to a different time in their lives. We held a competition which finished on the very last day of Flashback week, and our team of judges have been busy over the last two weeks reading the entries and voting for the best story, and we’re happy that we can now announce the winner!

And the winner is…


Chas Hammer

Chas’ Star Trek story titled “Rage!” is a flashback to a time when Lieutenant Hammer’s shuttle was shot down on a planet, and he had to fight enemy Cardassians to survive. The story regularly cuts back to the present where Lieutenant Hammer is being questioned by superior officers about the events on the planet.

You can read the full story by Chas Hammer here.

Many congratulations Chas!
