So here's how it works:
Comment with a prompt. It can be science, it can be math, it can be an obscure bit of computer coding, it doesn't matter so long as it is dorky as hell. We are discussing characters who are not all human, who live on a spaceship, and who do science for a living; let's make the fic reflect that. If you just really want to see a fic about a Starfleet astronomer writing a grant for some telescope time on the Enterprise, read about the struggles of the botanists trying to get their Aldeberanian tomatoes to grow, watch Bones play House and try to treat the surprising and alien venereal disease that Jim's somehow managed to contract this time, then this is the challenge for you.
Pictures, links to Wikipedia articles, explanations are all welcome. Be as specific (or not) as you want, and prompt as much as you want. Prompts will be open until March 10th, at which point writing and/or posting begins - more details on that later.( The prompt list:Collapse )
