Hey folks,

I'm so sorry for the delay. It's been a bit hectic in real life. I'll have a post up later today with how to submit art and a revised challenge schedule.

I hope everyone's still looking forward to participating.

Star Trek Enterprise
What is Trek Reverse Bang?

Trek Reverse Bang is based on startrekbigbang, except here the art comes first. Artists create their art, send in their drafts and authors choose the pieces in a blind claims post. Then the authors write a minimum of 6K words based on the artwork and starting from tJune 10th, the fandom gets a whole bunch of delightful presents.

What are the dates?

Feb 7 Artist & Author signups OPEN
Feb 7 Prompt submissions
Apr 30 Artist signups CLOSE
Apr 30 Author Signups CLOSE
May 1 Artist drafts due
May 2 Submissions viewing post opens
May 3-10 Author claims OPEN
June 10 Posting begins

How does this work?

Artists sign up starting Feburary 7th. They can work from their own ideas or choose from a selection of prompts that will be submitted by the fandom at large and have their pieces ready by April 30th. We are changing the rule slightly from last time in that artwork needs to be complete when submissions are due (we have increased the submission period accordingly). If you wish to add/change the artwork because you're inspired by the author's ideas after you've submitted your work, that's fine. And you're welcome to do more than one piece for an author if you have the time or desire to do so. This change is mainly to ensure that all art comes with a story and vice versa, since it is easier to find pinch-hitters to write if an author needs to drop out, but doesn't really work the other way around because of the way the challenge is structured.

27th-Mar-2013 08:00 am - Upcoming Round
Star Trek Enterprise
The next round of trekreversebang will take place after the release of the new movie and startrekbigbang's round. So we'll be back in January of next year.

It'll give us time to revamp and reorganize and have a better plan for running a more seamelss round.

We hope you'll have fun over at startrekbigbang in whatever form you choose then come back to join us for ours! :D


Also, would you like a series of ramp up festivities?

Thoughts and suggestions welcome in the comments.
9th-Jul-2012 06:09 pm - End of Round
Star Trek Enterprise
Hello folks,

We've reached the end of the round and I'd like to thank everyone for participating. I'd also like to extend a heartfelt thanks to our amazing artists for submitting additional pieces when they were able.

I'd like to welcome the artists who haven't posted their art to the comm for whatever reason to do so now. I'd rather your art was shared with everyone to be appreciated than held back.


Now to the unpleasant business. This round suffered from various delays for which I apologize and a confusing lack of follow through as posting neared. Out of our 20 pieces that were scheduled to be posted, only 9 were. Participation in this round was significantly lower than in the previous rounds and artists were asked to provide additional pieces if they were so inclined. I'd like to hear your thoughts on why that was the case and what can be done to ensure this reverse bang continues to have a healthy life as we move forward into future rounds.


  • Were the delays a hindrance?

  • Did life just get too busy toward the end?

  • Are folks just not interested in Star Trek anymore?

  • Are there just not enough people on LJ for a Trek Reverse Bang to be a standalone event?

  • Anything else you can think of?



You're also welcome to email us at trekreversebang[at]gmail[dot]com with your feedback if you prefer a different forum.
