[TLF Phase 3]: Victory is Life

Description

In the final stage of the fleet action, all things come to an end. Win or lose. Starfleet will prevail, but at what bitter cost? Your ship may strike a decisive blow against the enemy, or may count itself among one of those lost along the way.

The theme of this writing competition is ‘the price of victory.’ Is your ship one which overcomes the enemy, or do they fail and are themselves overcome? If they are successful, what is the emotional, physical, and psychological cost of such a victory for the crew? What has it taken from them? If they are defeated even when Starfleet is overall victorious, what does that mean for them? While this story may depict the actual moment of triumph – or defeat – the emphasis here is, as with previous missions, on the emotional burdens and journeys the characters have experienced.
