Jean-Luc Picard was our esteemed winner and as our new dictator he has thrown down the following challenge:
My idea is politics, one of our "FORBIDDEN TOPICS!!!" They're never going to go away, even into the 24th Century. How do our characters pick who to lead the Federation or participate in the illusion of freedom within the Romulan Empire? Do they remain active at the local level? Can they truly shape the future of their nation?
A novel and different challenge for sure but take the theme of politics, apply it to your story setting and era and possibly even create a little bit of world building. Or it might just be two crewmembers/captains discussing the merits or demerits of some political situation. Whatever your spin on it just make politics a part of the theme.
Obviously, and it really goes without saying but it would be remiss of me not to do so, keep real life politics out of it and don't worry about drawing any parallels and/or stating anything explicity. Make it about the story. Discussion thread HERE.
