[WATB Phase 1]: Looming Cube (Flash Fiction)


The Borg are known for their enormous, monolithic starships, each carrying tens of thousands of drones without any visible command, engineering, or habitat sections. They are faceless and terrifying much like the Borg themselves. For this competition, describe one of your character’s reactions to first seeing a Borg vessel—this could be on the holodeck or in real life, but very few people have seen a Borg vessel and lived to tell about it.

Write your response as a fiction vignette: a focused, concise piece of writing focusing on senses including sight, smell, taste, touch, and sound. This should be no more than 250 words. Enter your response directly into the competition box. You can post your vignette as part of a story on the BFMS, and if you do so, you should include that link in your competition submission as well. Your entry need not be set within your Fleet Action story, though, and it can be something you write just for this competition.


  • Entries will be scored using the Bravo Fleet Fiction Rubric.
  • Entries should be submitted directly to the competition form. If an entry is also being posted to a story, the link to the BFMS story should be included in the submission.
