Well the server is down so might as well post this:

I was thinking the other day how many events there are in this game and how many storylines the writers must have to come up with before one is decided upon. It might be funny to think of some of the terrible ideas that got rejected along the way. In my mind here are some terrible storylines for events that might have gotten rejected.

Rejected STT events:

Event name: “Even The Ugly Can Find Love”
Event Description: Help Neelix, Tuvix, and Yarnek find love for Valentine’s Day. Whether it be from an artificial intelligence or simply a hologram, almost anything will do.
Event crew: Neelix in a tuxedo, Tuvix in workout clothes, and Yarnek on the beach.

Event name: “1980’s Night”
Event Description: Starfleet decides to have a throwback event to celebrate the 1980’s.
Event crew: Kira in sweatbands and leg warmers, Wesley tries to be cool with a fanny pack, and Morn goes retro with acid washed jeans, night sunglasses, a popped up shirt collar and a boom box on his shoulder.

Event name: “Wrong Occupation”
Event Description: Q has already messed with the timelines but now decides to mess it up even further by forcing certain characters to do 20th century occupations they were clearly unfit for. Will they fail or thrive in their new occupations?
Event crew: Kindergarten Teacher Worf, Rapper Data, Flight attendant Quark, and Gowron the shoe salesman.

Event Name: “Halloween Night”
Event Description: Q has messed with everything again, this time he created a strange way to celebrate Halloween whereby characters come dressed as another. The best costume will win a prize. Will it be enough?
Event Crew: Picard dressed up as Beverly Crusher, Worf dressed up as Spock, Wesley dressed up as Khan.

All rejected storylines that never could have made it to become a Timelines event. Anyone have any other funny ideas for possibly rejected storylines?

Removed.

Aww… sorry to see you took the post down. I thought it was brilliant! Don’t know if I could have come up with anything quite as funny, but I was willing to give it a shot. wink

Could you please continue the petty bickering? I find it most intriguing.

Aw man, now I’m sorry I missed it.  Why’d you remove?

Originally I tried to delete it and I was going to work on it more and repost it later, but it did not seem possible for me to delete it. I thought if I just deleted the main message one of the mods would simply remove it for me. Apparently that didn’t happen either lol and I realized this post seemed stuck here.

Now the server is down and I’m killing time. So, I’ll just post the original message, maybe I’ll rework it later if I get the chance, or maybe not. I wrote all of it from my phone while I was bored and killing time.
