Presenting the official Rules, Terms and Conditions of




A contest for Star Trek fans throughout DeviantArt resulting in a freeware, non-profit calendar


DISCLAIMER: The organizers, contributors and other participants of Ships of a Lesser Line are not affiliated with CBS and/or Paramount Pictures. The project is a friendly competition of artistic merit, with no financial gain made from any side



The contest to get your work featured in Ships of a Lesser Line begins as of the publication of this message and its first phase ends at Midnight, Central European Time, on 31st of October, 2014. It will be followed by a week-long second phase where members of DeviantArt, contributors and non-contributors alike, can vote on the assembled images.

Note: the voting period might be extended should multiple rounds of polling be required due to large numbers of entries.

The top 13 (thirteen) results will be featured in Ships of a Lesser Line. The top scoring image will be featured on the cover, the others, in descending order, will become the 12 months of the calendar for the year 2015 AD.

Any member of DeviantArt can enter. There is no age restriction, also all nationalities and countries are accepted, including states with limited or no recognition. We all do this in the spirit of IDIC.

Those who do not have a DeviantArt account can ask someone who has one to feature their work. If voted, the name of the creator of the image, and not that of the account owner will be featured in Ships of a Lesser Line.

One person can submit one image. This counts even if one has multiple accounts.

The entries must be still images, including, but not restricted to, 3D renderings, drawings, paintings, blueprints, etc. Still frames from animations also count.

The entries must be your own work, so no screencaps from movies or games. 3D renders made with gaming models are accepted.

The entries must be Star Trek based. This includes starships, shuttlecraft, space stations, etc., but excludes characters – this is a spacecraft-based contest. Crossovers are also accepted as long as the main topic of the image is Star Trek related.

All eras of the Star Trek universe are accepted: ENT, TOS, TNG, DS9, VOY and Abramsverse. Fan-made eras and vessel designs are also accepted and welcomed.

The entries must be at least 1024X768 pixels of resolution (for those who wish to print out the calendar later on).

The end result of this contest will be a freeware claendar made with special software that will be psoted on my account but can be uploaded to any DeviantArt account, including those who did not participate and/or vote in this contest. The calendar will be ready-for-printing.

Please submit your contributions as a reply to this post.


The organizer of Ships of a Lesser Line can offer no monetary compensation for the contributors. All I can provide is excitement, friendly competition and the prestige for those who succeed.


I kindly ask those who read this and are interested in it to spread the word of this contest throughout DeviantArt. Let's make this a true fan event, by the fans, from the fans, to the fans.


If you have any questions, please send me a note. I wish you happy Trekking and lots of luck!

Just wanted to say I really enjoy seeing a new pic you've done show up in my watch feed, but I had a question: How do you feel about the design of the new version of Deep Space 9 that is currently gracing the Trek novels? 
I quite like it's blending of Federation & Cardassian aestetics into a somewhat retro-looking whole, but friends of mine aren't so keen (and I can see their point)......
thefirstfleet Featured By Owner 2 days ago
I have to admit, I have nothing against the station, but the story... I don't like how they killed off the old DS9, made Sisko an idiot, and the way they took exploration out of Trek to replace it with grimdark.
garrett2099 Featured By Owner 2 days ago
Yeah, that first book with Sisko being a tool was tough to read....
