Re: "Face of the Enemy" Line-by-Line

Well, for better of for worse, I've sort of become the de facto leader of these threads. And so I feel that I need to say something here before we go forward. But, truth is, I really don't know how to handle this.

This isn't a contest. There's nothing to be won or lost here. This is all just for fun. It seems like, though, that some people aren't enjoying these threads as much because they feel like they can't get in fast enough, and others feel like they would enjoy the threads less if there were restrictions placed on their participation. And I can see the valid points of both arguments.

So, since we're all friends here and this isn't a flame war that mods are having to step in and put out, I'd like to suggest this: Let's not try to set any hard and fast rules about number of posts in a row or how many times a person can post in a day or anything like that. Let's not make this something that requires a page of rules to follow.

But, at the same time, let's try to take into consideration the fact that not everyone is as involved in these threads as some of us are, and perhaps we need to step back once in a while and wait for a few hours to see if someone else wants to jump in and participate. Not every time. Not with some enforced restriction. But just out of concern for others who want to participate, and just with some common sense applied to whether or not a thread, or several threads in a row, have been moving so fast that some are feeling excluded.

Does that seem reasonable and make sense?

That sounds reasonable, try to avoid getting too carried away.

Re: "Face of the Enemy" Line-by-Line

That sounds good to me. That's what I was thinking of, let's not go start having to make big rules on something we've been doing pretty good for what, a couple of years now or something like that? But at the same time, let's make sure everyone feels welcome to jump in and participate. I think we can do it, we're all reasonable and mature adults. Except for LeadHead, of course.

I'm kidding. I'm kidding! I'm kidding!! You're supposed to laugh now. Go ahead, laugh at that, it was a joke. Laugh now. Laugh, or I'm going to go get that lion from Myspace comments to bite your butt! lol!!

No, Jack, we'd rather not.

Personally, I wouldn't like to be locked in their kitchen either

Re: "Face of the Enemy" Line-by-Line

Alright, seems like we've reached at least somewhat of a consensus. Let's try that for a couple threads and see how it goes.

And with that...

The participants from our current thread are as follows:

1. CoveTom
2. leandar
3. 5 LeadHead Rings (aka LeadHead)
4. JanewayRulz!
5. Gul Re'jal
6. Vulcan Princess
7. Brian
8. ClawsThatCatch
9. Ziz
10. Alienesse
11. Enteprise1981
12. PianoWizzy
13. Vanyel

Those names should be in the order in which each person first posted to the thread. No "weight" is given for who posted more or less often.

(If anyone has been inadvertently left off the list of participants, please let me know and I'll try to make it up on the next go-around.)

And now, it's time for random.org to do it's magic...

*drumroll*

5 LeadHead Rings (aka LeadHead)!

So, apparently LeadHead decided to start bribing the randomizer again...

So, LeadHead, the next move is yours. Would you like to select the next episode we are going to do line-by-line? You are free to select the next episode or pass and I will re-run the randomization. You can pick any episode from any of the Trek series that you like. For reference, the ones we've done so far, ordered by series, are:

The Original Series
Where No Man Has Gone Before
The Man Trap
The Menagerie
Journey to Babel
The City on the Edge of Forever
The Doomsday Machine
Requiem for Methuselah
The Trouble with Tribbles
Spock's Brain

The Animated Series
The Counter-Clock Incident

The Next Generation
Measure of a Man
Yesterday's Enterprise
Peak Performance
The First Duty
The Best of Both Worlds
Sins of the Father
All Good Things...
Contagion
Sarek
Face of the Enemy

Deep Space Nine
The Visitor
Trials and Tribble-ations
The Way of the Warrior
Improbable Cause/The Die is Cast
Favor The Bold/The Sacrifice of Angels

Voyager
Bride of Chaotica
Dark Frontier
Scorpion
Counterpoint

Enterprise
Shuttlepod One

Once a new episode has been chosen, I will fire up the next line-by-line thread in the appropriate forum and post the link here.

NOTE: As has been agreed, when a person is selected as the "chooser," they will have 48 hours to post their selection. After 48 hours, I will assume they "pass" and will re-run the randomization.

Re: "Face of the Enemy" Line-by-Line

Wow! Me Again? Okay, I'll do this, but if I come up on the next 2 or 3 I opt for an automatic re-run of the randomizer.

We have not ever done a 3 part arc, I know I'm going to be shunned because this is an Enterprise one, but I'm trying to be diplomatic about it. This arc has Brent Spiner in it!

Borderland/Cold Station 12/The Augments

It'll be fun to do a 3 parter and should stretch things out a bit, in combination with us trying to avoid going too overboard, should make sure more people have more of a chance to participate.

Re: "Face of the Enemy" Line-by-Line

^ Wow, great minds think alike. That would have been my pick. This is my favorite of all the Star Trek three-parters, excluding DS9's second and sixth season finales which didn't have "To be continueds" at the end.

Re: "Face of the Enemy" Line-by-Line

I think those actually should qualify, they've always been 3 parters in my mind. But we do have to maintain the to be continued rule I guess. Lets jump off that bridge when we get to it.
