[TLF Phase 2]: The Old Enemy

Description

The campaign against the Lost Fleet is in full swing. Enemies that have not come face to face in a quarter century clash in the stars, in orbit, on the ground. Whether your ship is on the front lines of battle, scouting on the outskirts, or providing support to those who fight, your involvement in this confrontation is inevitable.

The theme of this writing competition is ‘Violence.’ This is a deliberately open prompt and does not have to include the direct depiction of violence itself. But violence is all around in this campaign. How does your crew engage with it? How do they deal with facing it head-on, or the after-effects of a planet ravaged by war, or coming to the aid of another ship devastated by the enemy? Even being detached from violence in such a violent time, such as by learning about it second-hand, takes its toll. Rather than focus on how well a fight scene can be written, this competition is focused on the emotional, physical, and psychological burdens that violence inflicts upon characters.
