"Back from the Dead?" was the fifth Star Trek Online: Unofficial Literary Challenge based upon the Star Trek Online: Literary Challenges. It was the fifth Star Trek Online: Unofficial Literary Challenge of Star Trek Online's Season 9.5. It was managed by Star Trek Online Forum users and was made up of three separate challenges.
Prompt #1 - LazarusEdit
"Lazarus" was the first of three sub-categorized challenges within the overall challenge. It was suggested by Star Trek Online Forum user ambassadormolari.
- During the fight against the Vaadwaur in the Delta Quadrant, one of the officers under your command is killed on the Kobali homeworld. The Kobali approach you, and petition you to allow them to resurrect your officer as one of their own. Write about how your Captain would react to this petition, and whether or not your Captain would agree to it.
Prompt #2 - Ghost StoriesEdit
"Ghost Stories" was the second of three challenges within the overall challenge. It was suggested by Star Trek Online Forum user sander233.
- What better way to break in the new guy then by scaring the pants off him? After a new bridge officer is assigned to your ship, the rest of your bridge devotes a little downtime to relate a tale of terror - the sort of thing he should expect to face on a "typical" mission.
- Is the story true? Did your officers add their own embellishments? Did they make it all up?
- Could it happen again?
Prompt #3 - The Lives of... [Insert Name Here]Edit
"The Lives of..." was the third and final of three challenges within the overall challenge. It was submitted by Star Trek Online Forum user gulberat.
- You have been called to conduct your zhian'tara or participate in the zhian'tara of a crew member, family member, or friend from your past. Who will be accompanying you on this journey? Who will embody each host? What are their personalities like and their pasts? How have their successes and their struggles shaped the person you are, or that you know, today?
