"Time After Time" was the second unofficial Star Trek Online: Literary Challenge and the second unofficial Star Trek Online: 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.
Challenge #1 - Time after TimeEdit
"Time after Time" (which shares the title of its unofficial Star Trek Online: Literary Challenge) was the first of three sub-categorized challenges within the overall challenge. It was submitted by Star Trek Online Forum user sander233.
- In which you and your ship are caught in a time loop, in which you and your ship are caught in a time loop, in which you and your ship are caught in a time loop...
Challenge #2 - The Grass is Much GreenerEdit
"The Grass is Much Greener" was the second of three challenges within the overall challenge. It was submitted by Star Trek Online Forum user moonshadowdark.
- It was the perfect plan! During an excursion to the mirror universe, you successfully swapped places with your annoying counterpart and have infiltrated their starship. Now, as they are aboard your vessel in stasis, you are free to sabotage the ship and open portals to your universe! All you have left to do is—wait, what's this? The First Officer wants to have a lunch meeting? Your First Officer hates you with all their life. The ship's helm's man is inviting you to play cards? Must be a trick to assassinate you. Or is it? As you spend more time aboard this vessel, you discover how...nice it is! No having to worry about assassination plots, no battle rations for every meal, no having to report to those hard asses at HQ. This universe is paradise! But the Terran universe is expecting you to complete the mission. What do you do? Can you really turn your back on your home reality?
Challenge #3 - Out in the ColdEdit
"Out in the Cold" was the third and final of three challenges within the overall challenge. It was submitted by Star Trek Online Forum user danqueller.
- When you decided to join the Landing Party to do a quick survey of ruins on an arctic planet discovered in your patrol route, you didn't think it would turn into an extended stay. The hostile ships that came at your ship forced it to retreat, and the last communication you received indicated they were heading out of the system with the entire enemy force in pursuit. Now, you and those with you must survive in the bitter cold. Write a Captain's Log detailing the time spent on the ice planet and the eventual outcome of your efforts.
