"For the Uniform" Line-by-Line
Hello, Welcome!

We recently completed our "Year of Hell" Line-by-line" over in the Voyager 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 MickJo1701! And MickJo1701 has chosen "For the Uniform" 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, I or CoveTom, leandar, Enterprise1981 or one of our other great members of Team "Line-by-Line" will run the randomizer to determine who will pick the next episode and get it going.

Lets go and find Eddington!

Re: "For the Uniform" Line-by-Line
Captain's Log, stardate 50485.2. I've come to Marva 4, a planet near the badlands, to rendezvous with an informer who claims to have information on the whereabouts of the Maquis leader and former Starfleet Officer, Michael Eddington.

Sisko walks through a cave in civilian clothes and reaches a large chamber, there are many humans around, the mood is not a happy one. Sisko walks up to an elderly man who is welding.

Sisko: I'm looking for a friend of mine.

The Man keeps welding.

Sisko: His name is Cing'Ta.

The man stops welding and points toward an adjoining area, covered by a curtain.

Sisko walks to the curtain and goes inside, nobody is there.

Sisko: Cing'ta?

Sisko begins to take something out of his vest pocket. A Klingon disruptor is put to his head.

^ left this part out

(Sisko enters the curtained area.)

SISKO: Cing'ta?

(He reaches for his phaser, but a Klingon disruptor is put to his head.)

EDDINGTON: Throw it on the ground.

^ we're even now. :)

Sisko drops his phaser.

Eddington: Turn around.

Sisko turns to face Eddington. Eddington aims the disruptor away from Sisko.

Eddington: Hello, Captain.

Sisko: Eddington.

Re: "For the Uniform" Line-by-Line
EDDINGTON: Mister Cing'ta won't be joining us. His shuttle had an accident on the way to this rendezvous.

SISKO: Is he dead?

MickJo1701 October 28 2013 09:34 PM

Re: "For the Uniform" Line-by-Line
Eddington: You just don't understand the Maquis, do you, Captain? We're not killers. Mister Cing'ta's accident has marooned him on a particularly nasty planet in the Badlands. But I assure you, he's very much alive.

Re: "For the Uniform" Line-by-Line
Sisko: How merciful. You condemned him to a slow death.

Re: "For the Uniform" Line-by-Line
EDDINGTON: It's more than he deserved. He was going to sell us out to you. He betrayed us.

LeadHead October 28 2013 10:32 PM

Re: "For the Uniform" Line-by-Line
Sisko: Now there's a subject you know a lot about.

Athena28 October 28 2013 11:26 PM

Re: "For the Uniform" Line-by-Line
EDDINGTON: You've been on my tail for 8 months and now that we're face-to-face that's all you have to say to me?

MickJo1701 October 29 2013 12:07 AM

Re: "For the Uniform" Line-by-Line
Sisko: I will say the rest at your court-martial.

Athena28 October 29 2013 12:07 AM

Re: "For the Uniform" Line-by-Line
EDDINGTON: Tell me, Captain. What is it that bothers you more? The fact that I left Starfleet to fight for a higher cause, or the fact that it happened on your watch?

MickJo1701 October 29 2013 12:15 AM

Re: "For the Uniform" Line-by-Line
Sisko: You didn't leave Starfleet. If you had, I wouldn't be here. You betrayed Starfleet. You used your position as Security Chief to feed the Maquis information about us, and at the same time, you misled us with false information about them. There is a word for that. Treason.

Re: "For the Uniform" Line-by-Line
Eddington: Look out there.

(Sisko looks out into the main cave again.)

Eddington: Those people, They were colonists on Salva Two. They had farms, and shops, and homes, and schools, and then one day the Federation signed a treaty and handed their world over to the Cardassians. Just like that. They made these people refugees overnight.
