PREVIOUS CHALLENGES
January 2019: New Year's Resolution (Link)
February 2019: Café des Armours (Link)


THEMATIC CHALLENGE V19 03: THE NEVERENDING STORY
Inspired by the latest release Qpid this month's thematic challenge is all about stories, book, and literature in general. This could be a character from a book which was seen or mentioned on screen like for example Robin Hood from the episode Qpid or Hamlet because Jean-Luc Picard shows and mentions The Globe Illustrated Shakespeare which contains all works. But you do not limit yourself to Human literature, Klingons and Romulans have also some impressive amount of literature. You can find a list of books that were seen on screen on Memory Alpha.
Create a Star Trek CCG card from a piece of literature that was seen or mentioned on screen in any movie or series.


DEADLINE 31st March 2019


Sneak peak for April's challenge: You know nothing!

[D] Picard and Dathon at El-Adrel {Star Trek: The Next Generation}
In 2368 the Tamarian Dathon sacrified his life to establish first contact with the Federation of Planets. Dathon's sacrifice and Picard's experiences were remembered as a new "word" in the Tamarian language. [Countdown:3]

Plays on your Boreth or Defiant-class ship. Klingons you own gain Anthropology. When you solve this mission, place a Klingon in your discard pile aboard your ship here.
Klingon opera that foretells the return of Kahless. Favorite of Worf.

Vote: F.

My Entry:

Quote:
[NA] Michael Williams (Star Trek: TNG)

Image

[Holo] <Fed-Infiltrator> SECURITY

Holographic representation of the Shakespearean character. Soldier under Henry V. Bears a passing resemblance to Jean-Luc Picard, but nobody comments.

[SD] Anthropology [SD] Honour [DL] Earn Your Rank!

Integrity: 7, Cunning: 7, Strength: 7


Notes: For many years I thought this was in fact Picard playing the role in the scene in The Defector... Made the it a little confusing on the rewatch! In fact Patrick Stewart, due to his love of Shakespeare, requested he play one of the holograms as well, and so does double duty here.

All the Best,

Mattgomery Scott.

It seems that this month's thematic challenge is not very well received. I am truely sorry for that. If you are still undeceided or un-inpsired I would like to remind you that you still have a little more than a week for your submission. Then, a new thematic challenge will start.

When two famous authors become part of the Trek story, how can they NOT be an entry into a literary based dream card contest? :D
