"Here is Captain Hannah Welch and the senior staff of the USS Aurora on the surface of an alien world at dusk," Chris writes. "This is one of my favorite screenshots -- it captures what Star Trek has meant to me since I was a kid. A tight group of friends in a universe filled with wonders we've yet to see. One of my favorite quotes from the series (from the pen of Maurice Hurley) comes from Q at the end of the episode that introduces the Borg; 'It's not safe out here. It's wondrous, with treasures to satiate desires both subtle and gross. But it's NOT for the timid.'"

This image comes from Different Chris, who comments, "Here is a night rainbow (a nightbow?) outside Gwingris in Eregion. My Champion, Levir, was grinding through some of those blasted wood trolls when I suddenly saw this. I had heard that they existed in the game and was so thankful for getting to see it myself."
Wait, how does that work?
"It's just a beautiful, clear, summer day with Senorzerg!" Jordan taunts my very soul. That's OK. I'll just sit here in Detroit and dream of a better life as a fun-loving pirate. You can actually live it.
"It's a very foggy (almost-)evening in Limsa," Chiana says. "This is one of my favourite screenshots actually. It sort of reminds me of the original Limsa opening scene from version 1.0. Makes me feel nostalgic!"
