Contest 7 is really hard. I can't get beyond a Q episode.

Until last night.

Last night saw the arrival of the Andoran. Game player of godlike powers. And Kyle Pontain, arrogant human. Ohhh. Much too arrogant.

The Andoran was challenged.

The game began.

And then I dried up and went to bed.

In the middle of the night I knew what the story was. I awoke with a smile. In mythology, a man is hung from a tree for days gaining knowledge through agony. Just swap hanging from a tree with playing a game.

Perfection. Simple. Elegant.

Now. Now I'm fully awake. And sadly, I have no idea what the hell my subconscious was trying to tell me.

One thing though, I'm sure it would have been fantastic.

Oh well back to meeting one of the R continuum and the evil Blorg.

To be honest, the prompt was inspired by a Farscape quote.
John Crichton wrote:"Godlike aliens! Man, do I hate godlike aliens. I'll trade a critter for a godlike alien any day."
Sorry if it wasn't very inspiring. :cry:

Anyhow, that's it for entries. Poll is up, let the voting commence! :thumbup:
