CrunchTrek - Week 5 - And The Horse You Rode In On

“…And The Horse You Rode In On”

The last 18 hours on the USS Novaform were unnerving. Without a full crew compliment, systems all over the ship were shutting down. Captain @Salty1 put the computer in charge of most functions while he and XO @RelativeTime worked on weaponizing the Artifact. They discovered that it was made of 6 separate pieces, each requiring a specific timing and combination to deploy the weapons and the final one to close the Time Rift above Earth. The Borg would also know this through all of their assimilated knowledge, as well as Starfleet procedures from the assimilated officers from the Novaform, Black Bay, and Timegazer. There was a lot of work to do and not much time.

The Captain and XO brought the pieces of the Artifact from the Lab for the weapons bay and started retrofitting the photon torpedoes integrated with the Artifact tech. They were able to calibrate the last torpedo when the computer provided a warning.

“Exiting warp and arriving in Earth orbit in 15 minutes.”

The Captain and XO loaded the last torpedo in the tube and headed to the Bridge. Upon arriving on the command deck, the Captain said “Computer. Red Alert. XO, all power to shields and weapons.”

“Sir, long range sensors are detecting the Rift…and the Borg Cube”. Their transwarp drive outclassed anything the Federation had which allowed them to arrive before the Novaform to Earth.

“Lock weapons and take us in.”

—————————————————

Novaform and Borg, we’ve arrived at the final week of CrunchTrek. You will be facing off in 2 types of challenges.

  1. Daily Challenge from Monday thru Saturday - crews will post pictures based on my exact instructions. You can post your own pictures. If you do not post a picture that day, you will be eliminated.

  2. Community Challenge. Both Novaform and Borg crews will submit 1 paragraph to me supporting their position by 5pm PST 5/21 (0:00 UTC 5/22). I will post a poll with your paragraphs and the team that wins the poll will be declared the winner of CrunchTrek.

The question will be “If you had only 1 watch to wear the rest of your life, will it be a homage watch or an Apple Watch?”

  • Novaform - your paragraph will support wearing the homage watch for life

  • Borg - your paragraph will support wearing an Apple Watch for life.

You’ll need to convince your fellow Cruncher to only wear an homage or an Apple Watch, everyday for the rest of their lives. Can you do it?

————————————————

Tagging in @WatchCrunch as they will be creating a special badge for the winners. I’ve been teasing for weeks now about the special prize that I will personally give to the winners of CrunchTrek. Here it it. It’s one of 2 things. 1) I will donate $50 per player per winning team, to a charity of your choice. In this case, I will donate up to $100 to Novaform’s charity and up to $300 to the Borg’s charity. 2) If charity isn’t your thing, then how about a nerdy Star Trek watch.

For the write up are you allowed to upgrade to a next gen apple watch in say every 5-10 years? Or are you stuck with it until 2060s 😆

You only get software updates until Apple decides to cut it off in 5 years.
