May Fiction Vignettes


Now that the Archanis Campaign has wrapped, we’re bringing back a competition we ran several times last year: fiction vignettes. A vignette is a small piece of writing (or film) that is more about evoking imagery, the setting, a character’s thoughts, or a theme than about telling a start-to-finish story. Vignettes are a sample of ice cream, not a full sundae. The idea is to deliver finely-honed, evocative writing.

For this month, we’re going to be inspired by this awesome image by JetFreak-7. For this competition, write a short piece of fiction (under 300) words inspired in any way by this image.


  • Entries must be submitted directly into the submission box.
  • Entries may be no more than 300 words long.
  • Entries should reference the image being used for the contest.
  • Entries will be assessed based primarily on style, relation to the image, coherence with Star Trek and fleet canon, and creativity, with spelling and grammar being used for tie-breaking purposes.
