The Lucky Crewmember


Garden Q&A: Try your luck with four-leaf clover

Welcome to the Luck Crewmember, a writing competition that explores the concepts of luck set in the Star Trek Universe. Imagine a member of your primary command who possesses an extraordinary gift: they are unnaturally lucky. This luck is not a mere superstition but an actual force that shapes their lives unexpectedly. It could be narrowly avoiding a dangerous event, stumbling upon a solution to a seemingly unsolvable problem, or being in the right place at the right time to witness a key moment in history.

However, as with any gift, there’s a catch. Good luck always comes with a price. It could be a personal sacrifice, a moral dilemma, or a test of character. Your character must navigate the complexities of serving in Starfleet while wrestling with the impacts of their unique ability. The possibilities are as endless as the universe itself. So, let your creativity run wild and explore how luck shapes the life of your character. Remember, it’s not just about winning the competition; it’s about the journey of self-discovery, if you will.
