"The Devil in the Dark'' Line-by-Line
 
Hello, welcome!

We recently finished our "What You Leave Behind" Line-by-Line in the DS9 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 mach7!! And mach7 has chosen ''The Devil in the Dark'' 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 myself, or perhaps even BlueStuff, will run the randomizer to determine who will pick the next episode and get it going.

Remember, you're on the set, and Shatner is looking ahead at the Horta!

Schmitter: Nobody ever does. Whatever the thing is, it's already killed fifty people. I never realised before how dark it is down here.

Vanderberg: Stay on your toes, Schmitter. Keep your phaser in your hand at all times.

Schmitter: What good will that do? You saw what happened to Ed Appel when he shot at it. How about those other people before the monster got them?

VANDERBERG: I'm sorry, Schmitter. I know how you feel, but we've got to have guards.

Ok Chief, I'll do what I can.

VANDERBERG: You'll be all right.

(The group leaves and Schmitter walks nervously around. There's a noise, he turns, screams, then is enveloped by something. The others hear and turn back)


VANDERBERG: Come on!

(they run back but it's too late)

VANDERBERG: Schmitter... Like the rest of 'em. Burned to a crisp...

Captains log stardate 3196.1 a distress call from the pergium production station on Janus 6 has brought the Enterprise to that long established colony. Mr Spock, Dr Macoy and I have beamed down to meet with chief engineer Vandenberg, administrative head of Janus 6.
