This week, we'll get into a spooky mindset as folks prepare for Halloween! Let's icon some of the scariest Trek episodes!

To keep it consistent, I've looked up a lot of polls and lists of what fans feel are the scariest episodes across all series. There was a lot of overlap, and I feel the most comprehensive list is HERE, provided by Blumhouse.

For this challenge, you may make icons with images from the following episodes:

-The Man Trap (TOS)
-Whispers (DS9)
-Night Terrors (TNG)
-Impulse (ENT)
-Frame of Mind (TNG)
-Darkling (VOY)
-Wolf in the Fold (TOS)
-Empok Nor (DS9)
-Schisms (TNG)
-Q Who (TNG)
-Catspaw (TOS)


If you feel strongly that there should be another episode added to the list, comment or message the mod ASAP - I'll consider ideas until Wednesday, to allow everyone time to create. I have included one additional episode, Catspaw (TOS). If you have already submitted icons, you may change your entry until it closes. Feel free to include this episode!

RULES:
- You may enter up to 4 (four) icons for this challenge.

This week, we’ll have a character challenge. We’ve done characters whose names begin with ‘A’, and through random number generator, this time we’ll icon characters whose names begin with ‘D’.

Need ideas or help? Try the Wikipedia list of Star Trek characters - D. Think of characters like Data, Darvin (the non-Klingon), the many incarnations of Dax, Admiral Dougherty, the Deckers, Duras (of TNG and Enterprise).

You may have other characters in the icon, but the focus MUST be on the character whose single name (Data) or surname (Matt Decker) begins with 'D.'

This can be from ANY Trek episode or film, but if it's not immediately recognizable, please include the quote reference! Thanks!

This week, we'll have an icon technique challenge. You may use ANY Trek images, but the majority of the icon must portray open/negative/blank space. This space can be filled with part of the image, a texture, or color, but the focus of the icon should not cover more than half or so of the icon space.

Due to the terrible tragedy that occurred earlier today, I am altering what our challenge will be for this week. New Trek star, Anton Yelchin, passed away over the weekend. The Star Trek community and the world has lost a bright star, and I would like to honor him this week through our icons.

As our community did following Leonard Nimoy's passing, for this challenge, you may make icons of Yelchin as Chekov, in a different non-Trek role, or out of character. We will honor Anton Yelchin in all aspects of his life and work. May he rest in peace.
