(Update: two copies of the game Webbed added to the party favors via the generosity of Doc0075)
(Update: a copy of Elex donated to the party favors table by Ywzywz)
(Update: full music/clip listing of things i've posted added to post 3)
========================

"Time comes and goes, ever fleeting......precious moments here for a bit and then gone again. What will the future hold in store for me, for any of us, I wonder? No matter, once more into the fray.....beam me up, fate!"

*GR steps into a lavishly decorated hall flled with all sorts of games, food, and drink*

"Welcome, honored guests, to yet another of my little gatherings. I am glad you could all attend, and am pleased to say that I have some nice things in store for you all.....those that survive(the random draws), that is. For those who do, there are games and prizes to be had. For those who don't....well, at least they'll have the pleasant memories from the events about to unfold herein. Once again, welcome, and enjoy!"

First, let's set the proper tone with a nice little bit of music
(the full version of this song is linked at the bottom of this same post)

---

Well it's time once again for yet another contest, and this one is a special one....as it's for a certain someone's upcoming birthday. :)

Now this year has had a few more 'blah moments' than usual, but the birthday personz still maintain a cheerful optimistic outlook on life none the less, and to boost morale a bit more(of themselves and others on GOG), they figured it'd be a good idea to hand out a few nice prizes to some lucky people.

To enter, an entrant must complete the entry requirement(s) and follow the rules listed below.....and also one more thing: have fun :)

---

Deadline

The deadline for entries for the two main draws (and door prize draw) will be September 20th, sometime between the hours of 1am and 12pm.

(there is no deadline for the party favors draws, they will continue until all the favors are handed out or until the contest closes)

Rules

1. An entrant must have joined before September 2021. All entries made by suspicious seeming accounts(i.e. accounts with little to no rep, with few/zero games and/or hidden libraries) will be subject to scrutiny before being added to the entrants list(s).

2. An entrant must complete the entry requirements listed below, and be able to be PMd(in case they win a prize). This can be done by either adding me as a PM friend, or allowing PMs from everyone for the duration of the contest.

3. An entrant can enter (for themselves or some other eligible gogger) for any or both of the two main giveaways listed below, and must state which they are entering for/opting out of & whom they are entering for(themselves/someone else). Also, like usual, every entrant/poster graciously gets added to the door prize draw by default.

***Note*** There is also a party favors draw, where I will pick from all entrants at random and then let them pick one game from a list of games i've gathered up. Every entrant is entered for this by default, but may turn it down if selected(if they don't want anything on the list of party favors/etc).

4. Be amazing and awesome to each other, as always. :)

---

Contest Requirements
(entrants must do at least one,
but can do more if they so chose)

1. Name your favorite (official or fan made) Star Trek film or series/episodes , or favorite Star Trek game/game level/game map, or favorite race/character....and then tell us why its your favorite.

2. Post some star trek media(music/video clips/picture attachments or links/etc) you like.

3. Tell us what you would like to do if you could go into space
(like in Star Trek or similar shows/media)

4. Tell us how you/your locale like to celebrate birthdays, and/or any special/fun/interesting things you or someone you know did for a recent birthday.

5. (optional, but appreciated) Watch the birthday music video link above near the top of this post, and let me know what ya think.

---

Well that's about it....good luck, and may you all live long and prosper(in this contest and beyond) :)

GR bows and smiles kindly at all his guests: "Hope y'all have a wonderful time"

He then turns and notices a small group hiding in the shadows: "And here's to another year of fun...let the games begin!"

No posts in this topic were marked as the solution yet. If you can help, add your reply
3. Tell us what you would like to do if you could go into space
(like in Star Trek or similar shows/media)

What I'd like to do is start an enormous solar empire and make artificial planets for people to live on like a hive of hexagonal shaped cities all stacked neatly like a beehive!

Besides all that, thanks for joining us :)

since I have Shadow Man the original and I have star trek elite force I'll take the trek game credit!
I'll be entering for the party favors.

3. I'm not a Trekkie (although I have watch the 2009 film and enjoyed it) but I love Star Wars (can you tell? can you?). If I could go to space, the first thing I'd do is mess around in anti-gravity. I've always wanted to walk on the ceiling. Then I'd go in search of other life. I mean, sure that's what everyone says but it is quite intriguing to know if there really is other life or it's another thought of our delusional species. Also, I need to know if aliens have a pink/orange tint. I'd finally prove that Trump isn't human (I won't tell you if it's an insult or praise. I'm just appealing to both sides but I'm not American so hah.

4. Eat cake. That's good enough.

5. Damn it that song is amazing. How have I not heard of it before?

Thanks for the giveaway!

1. I assume that means you're not entering for the other draws then? Alright, done and done. :)

2. I love both, and also many other series...so much fun to be had and fun things to find in the genre that is scifi.

3. That reminds me of Prey 2006, which i'm playing through atm.....nice use of gravity and portals in that one.

4. Yeah, i'd also like to see if other life(intelligent life) exists in space as well. Also lol to the other bit.

5. Dangnabbit, now I want my cake(won't be getting one until the day in question). ;D

6. Dunno, but in case you're curious: it's a cover of an old eurhythmics song done by Marilyn Manson.

Btw, I linked a full version(with scenes from House on Haunted Hill, where it is featured) at the bottom of the OP post, if you want to hear more. :)

Yup. Checked it's Wiki page and found out. Great cover really. Sick beats.
First of all, thank you once again for doing another contest and bring joy to fellow goggers.

I'd like to enter for the Star Trek credit and the Party Favors

1. I've never been a Star Trek fan and don't really know much of the lore. But I played both Elite Force games a long time ago and enjoyed them very much because they were fps games and the sci-fi setting is always appealing to me.

2. Well, my favourite has to be this one :D

3. I'd just want to experience the no gravity feeling.

4. For my birthday I like to keep the things simple: just me and my relatives having a good dinner.

5. Never watched the movie, is it any good? The Marilyn Manson cover of Sweet Dreams is great, though. And the video for it is that typical kinda creepy Marilyn Manson style that we don't get anywhere nowadays.
In for Star Crawlers.

1. Star Trek 4 - The voyage home.

2. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a7mK79i0tF8 (or the same song with some amazing crossover: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zN1WSkFXmzU)

3. I'd like to visit all the extreme exo-planets that have been discovered. The water planet, the carbon planet, the ultra-black planet, the ultra-dense one and the fluffy one and of course have a look at the planest in habitable zones, whether they contain life.

4. Just visiting friends and have a party of whatever kind you like. No special traditions. Apart from singing a birthday song.

5. I'll counter your song with a much more light-hearted birthday song by a German a capella band: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ZRYCz284aM

It also is used to great effect in the film.....really sets the mood well early on, imo.
