Stonewall Yourovision 2019

April 07 2019


The Eurovision Song Contest is the ultimate #1 entertainment show event on the planet earth. Every year since 1956 a growing number of countries choose one song to represent their country in an opulent state-of-the-art worldwide broadcasted television show. An international audience and professional juries from each participating country then select their winner in the famously long and thrilling voting procedure. The ESC reaches about double the audience as the superbowl, it is watched and enjoyed all over the world as the Eurovision Europe happily includes even Australia. The ESC makes people come together in the spirit of Love, Peace, Peace, Love and tricks in a hamsterwheel. There are fireworks, wind machines, costume changes and wild dances that are building the bridges between the individuality of the songs and the uniting of different people to celebrate diversity. That is the spirit we share in Star Trek as well as in the community that builds Stonewall, so we decided to bring the three together in a modern fairytale under the same sky.

Join us on May 12th for a get-together in the spirit of Eurovision! We rendezvous on Risa and then there will be party for everybody, a fun quiz and a fashion contest. Amazing prizes from Stonewall Credits to ships and costume boxes will be available! So light your fire because we are one. Feel your heart beat, share the moment and dare to dream: #yourovision19.

Thursday May 16th * Eurovision Semi Final Two
Saturday May 18th * Eurovision Grand Final



There are so many facts and useless knowledge around the ESC, it's almost like Star Trek Canon! First we have the rules, for example no animals are allowed on stage. And all artists have to be at least 16 years old. And, ehem, theoretically, songs with a political message are not allowed to enter the contest at all. Then we have the stars, the eurovision royalties - gorgeous icons and divas like Dana International, Ruslana, Johnny Logan and Goran Bregovic and so many more. Not to mention the growing number of participating countries and all the cities that had the honour to host a show, from Lisbon to Helsinki, from Dublin to Moscow.



Get a glimpse of it all in our Eurovision Star Quiz, in which we playfully present some interesting facts around the big contest. You do not need to be a eurovision specialist for this, so don't be shy to take part in it, as it will be mostly a multiple choice quiz! And there are Prizes to win as well:

First place: 3 Stonewall Credits
Second place: 2 Stonewall Credits
Third place: 1 Stonewall Credit
All participants will recieve a mystery item.
Stonewall Credits are redeemable at the Stonewall Credit Store for in-game and out of game prizes.



In Eurovision, you can break the rules of fashion and your chance to win shall grow. Costumes make up much of the unforgettable impression from a performance. To honor and enjoy the eye candy factor of Eurovision, we will have the following three amazing categories:

1. Colorful Sporty
Many acts decide to go for a sporty look in bright colours, usually combined with rather modern choreographies. Show us your toon in a casual, modern and colorful look. Even swimsuits are allowed.

2. Classical Elegance
The song contest stage is also often filled by people in elegant suits and classy gala robes. Throw on your finest and impress with a sophisticated evening attire in a glamorous look!

3. Costume Change
Why just go with only one costume? Give us your very own version of the (in)famous on-stage costume change!

Each person can participate in each three categories. Remember that in Eurovision, costumes often get enhanced to work well with the wind machine (featuring long hairstyles or capes) and sometimes they are designed to fit a certain choreography. You are more than welcome to include such thoughts in your design and your presentation to the audience.Also, feel free to enhance your performance with other emotes or special effects. As in the real Eurovision show, there are no pets allowed.
Please note the procedure to detemine the winners is inspired by the original EBU voting system: all participants in one category are members of the jury for this category. You have 8, 10 and 12 points to distribute for your 3rd, 2nd and 1st place. You are not allowed to vote for yourself. The voting points will be collected and then summarized together. Should there be ties within the results of the audience, a jury of neutral event-hosts (the Teds) will decide.

In each category you can win the following:
First place: 3 Stonewall Credits
Second place: 2 Stonewall Credits
Third place: 1 Stonewall Credit
All participants will recieve a costume item.
Stonewall Credits are redeemable at the Stonewall Credit Store for in-game and out of game prizes.




Take your chance to win up to 100 million EC in this years Heavy Betting Game!

Eurovision is an amazing thing - the coming together of nations not unlike the birth of the federation!
But with gay frivolity! And songs!
Hopefully you'll be able to watch it somehow :D

What a great description of this mega show. All is said. And you can watch it even in the US and Canada and China! Here's how:

1. Try the official website of the Eurovision Song Contest. It has all the news and on the event days there will be live streams as well.
>>> Eurovision official website
2. If this is not working, you can try Eurovisionworld. It has a great calendar of all events, linked with live streams, sometimes with multiple options.
>>> Eurovisionworld

@Voleron: There is a canadian singer this year, 'Katerine Duska' from Greece. And another canadian singer has even won the contest: Céline Dion in the year 1988 for Switzerland with the song 'Ne partez pas sans moi'.

We like that idea, but right now it will be more like a chat based tell-your-tale thingie. We've did a klingon boasting contest a while ago, and it was done in this manner. Was a lot of fun. So, if you want to take part, please prepare a short song/poem/story, which can be posted in the fleetchat in, say, up to 5 - 10 posts.

The singing or sometimes mentioned live karaoke thing has the problem of synchronizing around the world. Most people are unaware of this problem, but you have it even in the PvE's of the game. We use 2 computers with the same connection and we sometimes measure a difference about 1.5 seconds. In the game that isn't that dramatic, but in live singing it is really awful. But we're working on it for the future...
