CBS Interactive and Fanlib are teaming up on an official STAR TREK fan fiction writing contest! Here’s the deal: the story idea is Kirk vs. Picard. Trek producer Andre Bormanis will be throwing out some initial ideas that will then be open for a vote– the idea that wins will drive the storyline. From there ,wannabe-writers will submit chapters based on “scene missions” from the site, with weekly winners picked through online voting (a panel will narrow the selections down first). Online videos, hosted by George Takei and Wil Wheaton, will chronicle the whole thing.
Winning contributor get some pretty nice prizes, including an iPhone and a trip to Vegas that includes a tour of Star Trek: The Experience. No word yet on what we will become of the final story, though!
Our only advice? Kirk wins. Kirk always wins.
