Sentinels of Peace: Gunboat Diplomacy
Diplomacy is usually accomplished through words, behind closed doors, and away from the eyes of the public. Sometimes, however, things aren’t so easy or circumstances don’t allow for any calm discussions. There are occasions when negotiations happen behind the barrel of a gun, or in this case, a phaser bank. Some species simply can’t be reasoned with, and though it may not be the preferred method a diplomat would use to get the point across, a well placed phaser discharge can do it in a pinch.
In Star Trek Online, participants shall undertake the following TFOs; Azure Nebula Rescue, Gateway to Grethor, and Swarm. These missions highlight the Federation’s willingness to come to the aide of former enemies who have since become allies, even if temporarily.
- Participants should play any of the following TFOs: Azure Nebula Rescue, Gateway to Grethor, or Swarm.
- Participants should submit their TFOs as normal to the gaming office, excepting that the entries for this competition should be separated out from their other TFOs, and labeled as being part of this competition. If you are unsure of how to submit gaming activity, please consult with the Gaming Office.
- This competition will be scored based on the total number of eligible TFOs completed within the competition period. A participant may complete each TFO as many times as they wish, each proof of submission counting for one point.
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.
