Our final visit to ‘The Tavern’ with Cap!

Players must write up an account from their character’s background which involved them being sent back in time and how they witnessed a particular significant event from the past. This may include history from Earth, or a different planet as well as Federation history. They must then end their post on being approached by Lucsly and Dulmur, the two agents from the Department of Temporal Investigations and having to be debriefed by them (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: “Trials and Tribble-ations”). A maximum of 3000 words will be set. Posts must be submitted to the BF Forums.
