Sorry you couldn't enjoy it, though you were always welcome. It didn't drag, and there was only 1 reason for it, to keep entertained while we waited - remember the waiting we sometimes had to endure?

Re: "Emissary" Line by Line

Look the rest up, you'll see plenty that took a long time before a new person was chosen and a new episode picked.

Oh what the hell:
Tomorrow is Yesterday
In The Pale Moonlight
Are just two of many. In the Pale Moonlight is unique in that we finished a second episode and started a third. IMO it's just a few killjoys who complain about the after party line-by-line. All are invited, all are welcome. Hell, we've even had people complain about a small group of posters finishing a single episode. Still I say it's fun. If you don't want to play, don't. That last sentence was not directed at you Sammy142, please come play with us:

They were amusing for a page or two. After that, it was like most of Family Guy's sidebar jokes that just go on and on and on and on to where you're begging for it to end so they can get back to the main part of the show.

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.

Several people played, and I'm truly sorry you couldn't see the fun in it. It also, I might add, served an unintended purpose, it kept the thread active and people looking in to see if a new person had been picked, and what new episode had been chosen. I am really sorry that you didn't find it fun. I'm also sorry you didn't find the marathon postings to finish an episode fun. And the after LBL's ended once a new episode was chosen.

I just think that certain posters get carried away and turn it into a competition where it should be more relaxing and fun.

But it's a game, and games are competitive. Do you remember when we did "The First Duty"? The line by line came to dead halt right before Picard's "First duty" speech. Leadhead broke the stand off and the game continued. LINK (it starts at post 221.)

That was almost 2 years ago. This has always been a competition.

Re: "Emissary" Line by Line

Whenever I hear somebody not be pleased about our marathon finishes, I think back to when Vanyel and I did The Best of Both Worlds about 97% between the 2 of us.

I can't speak for Vanyel, but I had a blast! Two evenings we made our way through one of my all time favorite Trek episodes. We had a rhythm so well going, we didn't need to wait to check if you should get the next line ready. It wasn't a competition, just a lotta fun.

Was it you that I blew through "Sarek" with in just a matter of hours as well?

I've been itching to do this one since the first time we did "The Enemy," "The Defector!"
