Once a week, players will be offered a new ship variant which they can compete for a build. The most original and practical version of the ship will be selected; the player who submits that winning version gets 500 credits, and is mentioned in the lore for that ship.
As this is the first run on the contest, we will start with one of the simplest designs -- the Orchis Class III Corvette.
