For millennia, the evil Galra Empire has plagued the universe by destroying other civilizations and enslaving various races. The only known threat strong enough against the empire's power and plans is the legendary 'Defender of the Universe' Voltron, a 100-meter tall robot warrior composed of five lion mechas whose pilots are known as the Paladins. At the crux of the war that ended with the destruction of planet Altea, Voltron was separated by King Alfor of Altea in order to protect Voltron from falling into the Galran Emperor Zarkon's possession. King Alfor bonded the five lion's energies to his daughter Allura's life force and sent them across the universe to different locations until the time for the next generation of Paladins to appear and pilot Voltron arrived. Princess Allura, her royal advisor Coran, and the Altean Castle of Lions were hidden on planet Arus along with the Black Lion.

Growing tomatoes, lettuce, or carrots on Iceland? What an absurd idea!

But still, whoever had that idea was a genius! Geothermal energy on the island allows you to cultivate the most unexpected fruits and vegetables - an oddity that no tourist would want to miss. You are not the only farmer in Reykholt who is looking to make a fortune out of this, however, so you better be quick! The tourist season in Reykholt is short, and there are more people coming every year. Making use of the right people and having the right vegetables at the right time in Reykholt will give you the advantage you need to win the race!

GM Troupe: Team Woodbury
Type: LARP
System: Cooperative Problem Solving
Players: 8
LARP Experience: Beginners Welcome
Game Content: Family
Genre: Star Trek DS9
Costume Suggestions: Any DS9-era Trek

You finally took Quark up on his 2-for-1 holosuite deal. It seemed like such a great way to blow off a little steam with some friends. Unfortunately, you seem to have triggered an old Cardassian boobytrap, sealing the room and shutting down most of the systems. Engineering is locked out, transporters aren't functioning, and there's an ominous countdown proceeding toward zero. You need to somehow make sense of the station's systems and puzzle your way out of this before something bad happens.

Notes:
1. This is a game event that requires you to use your keen mind and powers of deduction to succeed. While knowledge of Trek may be entertaining, it is not necessary.
2. Gather items, find codes, and solve puzzles to restore system functions and escape.<br>3. Strategy and cooperation with your team members is essential more heads are definitely better than one.<br>4. Failure to escape the holosuite is nothing to be embarrassed about. After all, you are matching wits with the Cardassians, widely known for their devious plots and ingenious traps.<br>5. Do not worry if you are still in the holosuite when time expires. Odo has told Quark he's not allowed to charge you extra.<br>6. Dressing like your Trek character may help
