Lying Down On The Job
Everybody knows that in Starfleet, there are the best of the best… and then there are the other guys.
You know who they are. They’re the people that maybe they work hard, but then they decide in the middle of a firefight, that’s a great place to take a nap, right? They’ll cut a corner or two just to get some peace and quiet, and who can blame them? The constant thrum of a warp engine sometimes isn’t very soothing, and you just need some loud explosions to lull you to sleep. This is what this competition’s all about.
To participate, STO players just need to do one thing: use the emote “Sleeping” in an odd place. Amuse us – and quite possibly yourself – getting the most inopportune time to lie down on the job. Could it be while a Gorn is trying to hurl a rock at you? Could it be while negotiating with a Ferengi? Could it be on the command deck of an Iconian dreadnought while trying to negotiate galactic peace? Or could it simply be on the top of the only bar on Nimbus, instead of entering it and getting jumped by a three breasted cat dancer?
On a side note, does anyone else notice that the accolade for the “only bar on Nimbus” completely ignores the other bar on Nimbus, Shangdu?

Please read through and view each competition submission before making your decisions. As a general rule of thumb, the earliest person who submitted a fully correct entry should earn first place, although this may vary depending on the competition you hosted. Don't forget to compare each entry with your criteria as a rubric for grading! Feel free to contact the Chief of Staff if you have any questions about the judging process.
