The challenge has been cast. The gauntlet thrown down. Many have been called, few have answered. On the planet Hacknor... On Fire Island D, brave contestants will compete. Who will falter? Who will thrive? Who will be
OK, Gladiators, it’s been a tough couple of weeks here but don’t worry, this next challenge will be easy. Each of you will get the chance to captain a starship. No problem right? Just ease that thing out of Spacedock and head off to patrol the Nuetral Zone area. No problem.
Oh yes, except there is this one tiny little thing: the Kobayashi Maru.
The Kobayashi Maru is a tiny freighter that somehow got off course and damaged in the Neutral Zone. It’s sending out a distress signal even as we speak. Head on out there and do what you can.
Don’t worry about who’s on the other side of the Neutral Zone, they’re probably not watching or listening to what’s going on over here. Everything will be just fine. Have fun, it’s just a simple rescue op.
Oh yeah, and add to the fun, guess who showed up to judge the challenge? None other than Simon himself. Yep, he’s taking a little break from tickling Clay Aiken’s feet with a peacock feather on his palatial estate to lend a hand.
