"Day of the Dove" Line-by-Line
 
Hello, welcome!

Since I'm too impatient, I've taken the liberty of starting the new thread, which hopefully won't be considered bad form.

We recently finished our "Memorial" Line-by-Line in the VOY 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 Orac! And Orac has chosen TOS's "Day of the Dove" as 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, LeadHead, or CoveTom, or leandar will run the randomizer to determine who will pick the next episode and get it going.

Okay, time for some Klingon action!

Let's Go!

(Kirk, McCoy, Chekov and a security guard have beamed down to a planet with a green sky and occasional outcrops of vertical rocks. Their phasers are drawn.)
KIRK: Report, Mister Chekov.

Chekov: Full scan. Results negative. Radiation level normal. Atmosphere and terrain are undisturbed. No evidence of a colony nor any residual aftereffect of a force that might have annihilated it.

KIRK: Life readings, Doctor McCoy?

Re: "Day of the Dove" Line-by-Line
 
MCCOY: Nothing. They said they were being attacked by an unidentified ship.

Orac March 20 2013 05:50 AM

Re: "Day of the Dove" Line-by-Line
 
Chekov: Which we were unable to detect upon approach.

Re: "Day of the Dove" Line-by-Line
 
KIRK: An entire human colony, a whole settlement. One hundred men, women and children. Who did it? And why? (communicator beep) Kirk here.

Orac March 20 2013 05:51 AM

Re: "Day of the Dove" Line-by-Line
 
Spock [OC]: Spock here, Captain.

[Bridge]

Spock; Sensors have picked up a Klingon ship, closing fast.

Re: "Day of the Dove" Line-by-Line
 
KIRK [OC]: Deflectors on. Condition Red. Protect yourselves.

[Planet surface]

KIRK: Total reply if attacked. So that's the answer. Klingons.

Orac March 20 2013 05:53 AM

Re: "Day of the Dove" Line-by-Line
 
[Bridge]

Sulu: Trouble aboard the Klingon ship. Evidence of explosions, massive destruction.

Gul Re'jal March 20 2013 05:54 AM

Re: "Day of the Dove" Line-by-Line
 
[Planet surface]

(Five furious Klingons beam down.)
SPOCK [OC]: Captain, the enemy ship is drifting, totally disabled.

[Bridge]

SPOCK: And we never fired upon her.

Orac March 20 2013 05:56 AM

Re: "Day of the Dove" Line-by-Line
 
[Planet surface]

Kirk: Maintain Red Alert.

BlueStuff March 20 2013 05:56 AM

Re: "Day of the Dove" Line-by-Line
 
(The Klingons arrive, and their leader hits Kirk with his disruptor, knocking him down.)

KANG: You attacked my ship! Four hundred of my crew dead. Kirk, my ship is disabled. I claim yours. You are now prisoners of the Klingon Empire against which you have committed a wanton act of war!

(And a weird swirl of light hangs in the air a little way away. The Federation landing party are disarmed.)

KANG: For three years, the Federation and the Klingon Empire have been at peace. A treaty we have honoured to the letter.

Gul Re'jal March 20 2013 06:00 AM

Re: "Day of the Dove" Line-by-Line
 
KIRK: We took no action against your ship, Kang.

Orac March 20 2013 06:09 AM

Re: "Day of the Dove" Line-by-Line
 
Kang: Were the screams of my crew imaginary? What were your orders, Kirk? To start a war? You've succeeded. To test a new weapon? We shall be happy to examine it.
