The best collection of the most implausible, ridiculous, gaudy, or just plain silly original Star Trek characters! :DFAQ
Hmmm… we might need to do an extension on the contest. We only have 1 entry so far, and I just realized I never announced any prizes!
Would it help get more entries if I actually did that, do you think? XD
So, the contest has been EXTENDED until a month from now, AUGUST 20TH, until we can get this situation back in order and drum up some prizes!!
Oh my gosh, is it really that time already?!
The contest ends tomorrow night!! Get those entries in! :D
Sweet mother of god how do you mix a unicorn and a Vulcan?
With a little champagne, candles, and some smooth jazz.
Anonymous said: Please don't use the phrase, _____ played the ______ card. It makes you look like a bigot. I mean, if you're a bigot, then I guess it's okay, but if you didn't really mean it that way... yeah, that is the way it's taken by the member of the group you just othered and mocked by suggesting their attempt to share is a misguided attempt at belonging that will not be accepted.
Oh wow, my first anon hate! :)
I’m sorry you think I’m a bigot. That’s not what I meant. There is a difference between sharing about your disability, and using it purely to garner attention and sympathy from other people. That’s rude and wrong.
Additionally, you should not give your character a disability just to get attention or to demand “pity” from other people, because that puts their disability in the forefront and lessens their value as a regular person inherently deserving respect, purely in the name of humanity.
Basically, don’t use disabilities as an attention-getting device, whether you’re a real person or creating a character! It’s selfish.

She has cerebral palsy (like my friend), works with Bones as a brain surgeon (what my friend wants to be), hates Spock (for no reason), and she pretty much always tells people not to pity her and then tells them her backstory so they will pity her. She insists she's independent but then can't go without Kirk. It's ridiculous.
Oh, that’s unfortunate. :/ You should never play a disability as a Sympathy Card.
Sel daughter of Guinherr
A young, smart aleck, trouble-making ensign. Sel was invited to study in order to join Starfleet after a rare genetic abnormality developed in adolescence. Her estranged father Hhel’d was a first generation Klingon-Vulcan hybrid and Sel’s disability is the product of forewarned-against genetic disaster. Being one of the fist discovered second-generation offspring to develop such a mutation, an invite was extended on behalf of a starfleet medical board to join on the condition that she be surveyed on her condition and agree to experimental treatment- the only treatment to be developed. The infusions and therapy keep her around to bug the everliving snot out of the crew, but aren’t enough to cure her symptoms. (which very much resemble that of painful human autoimmune syndromes) Of course, Sel takes it like a Klingon.
