    Default Cover Contest 8/26 to 9/1: Redshirts

    Let's do something Trek-inspired...
    REDSHIRTS!!!
    Ah, Redshirts. They're there to die horribly so the main characters appear to be in 'peril'.
    Your job this week is to post covers featuring some poor lesser team mate having suffered a horrible fate while our true heroes look on in horror, determination, morbid curiosity, unconcern, etc. It doesn't have to be a Trek cover; just one featuring an unfortunate soul who never had a chance and some other people who we know aren't going to suffer the same fate because of their Plot Armour.

    ...and yes, I'm fully aware of the red/gold switch between TOS and TNG. :P

    The usual RULES apply:
    1) Post One (& ONLY ONE) Cover that fits the theme of this Week's Contest!
    2) Cover must be from a Published Comic Book, Graphic Novel, or Collected Volume!
    3) Covers must be Posted before Voting Begins!
    4) Voting Begins 12 AM Wednesday PDT and Runs Until 12 AM Tuesday PDT (3 AM EDT)! (This is in US time)
    5) Vote by Posting the name in BOLD of the Poster whose cover best fits the theme or that you simply like the most! A vote need not be in bold, but it does make it easier to Count-The-Votes!
    6) The Winner of the Contest is the Entry with the MOST Votes after the Voting-Period!
    7) It's Okay to Discuss the Covers but if you Think Someone's Entry Doesn't Fit the Theme or Violates the Rules, you Don't need to Argue it in the thread, Simply Don't Vote for It!
    8) Plus: Occasionally Voting will Result in a Tie! The Person Who Started the Thread will do the Counting that Week will Usually call for a TIE-Breaking --Vote from Someone who has Not Yet Voted!
    9) AFTER the Tie-Breaker Vote, Voting Ends and the Winner is Declared by The One Who Started the Thread (or assigned surrogate) and Thus will do the Counting.
    10) HAVE FUN!

    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    It's a little on the nose but I couldn't resist one with an actual redshirt getting taken out.

    You can find a bunch of books I wrote stories for here. The weekly column is here.

    Spock seems suitably pissed off about being shifted from Science to Security... and what that means for his career [and general life] options.
