"Unification" Line-by-Line
Hello, Welcome!

We recently finished our "Return to Tomorrow" Line-by-Line over in the TOS Forum!

After each completed thread, we're randomly picking someone who participated to choose the next episode we do. The lucky winner this time around was Enterprise1981, who has chosen "Unification" to be our next Line-by-Line challenge!

For any unfamiliar with our "game," you are asked to post only a single line (defined as one character speaking without interruption by another character) per message. You can post as often as you like, but someone else must post a line in between your posts.

Our "rule" is that if the episode has a "To Be Continued..." on the end, it is done in a single thread, but if it's just an arc of related episodes, each episode is a separate thread.

As before, at the conclusion of this thread, I or my Romulan Double Agent, CoveTom (:techman:) will pick someone at random from among all the participants to choose the next episode we do.

Lets begin The Next Generations "Search for Spock!"

Captain's Log, Stardate 45233.1. Our terraforming mission to Doraf One has been cancelled and the Enterprise recalled to Starbase 234. Fleet Admiral Brackett would not discuss the matter on subspace for reasons she said would soon be clear.

BRACKETT: I apologize, Captain, for the mystery, but we must attempt to contain the information I'm about to reveal to you at least as long as possible.

Picard: I must admit you've piqued my curiosity, Admiral.

BRACKETT: Three weeks ago, one of our most celebrated Ambassadors, an advisor to Federation leaders for generations, disappeared. He left no word of his destination. Two days ago, intelligence reports placed him on Romulus and I assure you it was an unauthorized visit. Computer, initiate linkage between this terminal and starbase computer system alpha two nine.

Re: "Unification" Line-by-Line
Computer: Linkage Complete.

PICARD: A defection?

Brackett: If it is, the damage to Federation Security would be immeasurable.

Looking at the blurry image on Picard's Desktop viewer.

Brackett: Taken on Romulus by Federation Long Range Scanner. Computer: Enhance the image in Section 4-Delta.

The Image zooms in on a face, then clears up so we can see that it is the face of Spock.

Picard is speechless as he looks at the image.

Captain's log, stardate 45236.4. As I study the intelligence reports on Ambassador Spock's disappearance, I cannot help but feel a deeper, more personal concern about this mission, for I know this man through his father. It was barely a year ago that I shared a mind meld with the Vulcan, Sarek. Now we must meet again as I attempt to find an explanation for his son's actions.

Picard sits in the Observation Lounge, staring off into space. Riker enters.

Riker: We'll be coming into orbit of Vulcan in less than an hour, Captain.

Re: "Unification" Line-by-Line
Picard: We should tell Sarek's wife of our plans.

Enterprise1981 July 4 2012 09:27 PM

Re: "Unification" Line-by-Line
RIKER: Already been taken care of. She's transporting over at oh-seven-hundred.

Santa Garrus July 4 2012 09:35 PM

Re: "Unification" Line-by-Line
Picard: And Sarek?

Vanyel July 4 2012 09:35 PM

Re: "Unification" Line-by-Line
Riker: She say's he's too ill to make the trip.
