Obviously you haven't finished reading this thread either. I have guessed that earlier.

Reading isn't one of your strengths, huh:

Don't go guessin' every one-word numbered TNG book title all at once, though, that's hardly fair. :P
I was waiting for at least a handful of people guessing after my last try before making a new guess, and I think others did likewise, but you had to post 4 at once.

Sorry.

Re: Bringing back an old game - Name the TrekLit Quote

Well, you got it, Steel. It's Intellivore - obviously a Trek novel that's made a huge impact on the Trek community Ah well. I just liked the name of the novel, that's why I picked it up and read it - not Duane's best book.

Go ahead and pick your quote, but try to make it something people will recognize because otherwise this thread will qualify for the most boring of all time, and I don't want to be responsible for that.

And, trampledamage, good suggestion: from now on, no more than 15 or so guesses. A hint is allowed from the OP of the quote for every 5 wrong guesses, if necessary. If after 3 hints nobody gets it, then someone new gets to post a quote.

Also, new rule: no more than two guesses per user per calendar day. That should keep things fair.

Re: Bringing back an old game - Name the TrekLit Quote

Okay, here's my quote:


Although Standared procedure, the stringet security measures felt more time-consuming than usual tonight, so impatient was Shannon to reach her final destination. She tapped her fingers restlessly against the dashboard as the Jeep's headlights fell upon a large hangar door built into the side of the mountain. An electric eye scanned the vehicle and its occupants, and the metal door rolled upward, well-greased gears making minimal clatter. The rising gate exposed a paved, man made tunnel that led directly into the zealously guarded heart of what the United States government, when grudgingly forced to acknowledge this installation's existance, reffered to simply as the "Groom Lake Facility."

Better known to the world as Area 51.


Good Luck.

Re: Bringing back an old game - Name the TrekLit Quote

Yes actually.

Damn I did not think someone would get it that fast. I thought this would be a bit tougher.

Good job.

Let's see your quote.

Re: Bringing back an old game - Name the TrekLit Quote

Oh, sweet! It was a guess, but a logical one. It's been years since I've read those books, so I wasn't even sure which one to guess.

"Riker remembered a time when he had gone mountain climbing at the age of fourteen, explicityly against his father's orders...or pehraps, if truth be known, precisely because his father had forbidden it. He'd been halfway up a particularly hazardous peak when his pitons had ripped loose from where they'd been wedged into the rock surface. Riker had swung outward, dangling, one thin rope preventing him from plunging to his death. The moments until his climbing partner had been able to reel Riker in and help him get re-anchored had been fraught with tension."
