KIRA: As of this moment, betting pools of any kind are illegal on this station. I catch someone placing a bet, I put you in a holding cell for fifteen days. Is that clear?

(Kira sees Jake staring out of a window and goes up to join him. The wormhole goes WHOOSH. Then we pull back and back, until DS9 is just a dot in space as we leave them behind.)

Re: "What You Leave Behind" Line-by-Line

Is it me or has this game descended to a cut and paste job from Chrissie's Transcripts and other such sites? How many people are taking the time to actually look up the episode, pull out their DVD's, or look to see if they can find the episodes online somewhere?

Hell, some people don't check the accuracy of what the transcripts say, or that the stage notes made are correct. I really noticed how people are just copying what they see at Chrissie's Transcripts when we did The High Ground. When the Ansata went to Engineering the staging in the transcript did not match the staging in the episode.

So I'm asking, has this become a game, or merely a cut and paste job?

I, for one, took the time to find the episodes and write out my own transcript. It wasn't perfect and some times I was only a few lines ahead of the pace of the posting, but I did keep writing my own transcripts. I don't have all the episodes or DVD's for all the series, but I did my best to find the episodes. If I couldn't find the full episode online I'd find a piece of the episode on Youtube and hope I get the line in at the right time. In other words I worked for my posts.

For me this is no longer a game, just a cut and paste job.

Any thoughts on this? Am I right? Am I wrong?

Re: "What You Leave Behind" Line-by-Line

I'm glad you have brought this up, Vanyel..

I use the transcripts but only to confirm the lines, and I almost always type out the lines, (I can count the times I've cut and pasted with the fingers on one hand) it's why so much of the time my non dialogue material is more intricate and specific. I'll admit that it's bugged me when I've written up that and been outpaced by someone who cut and pasted.

I'm okay with cut and paste as long as it's not what someone does all the time. The fun of this for me has been typing in the lines and writing the non dialogue material.

Other thoughts?

Re: "What You Leave Behind" Line-by-Line

I would say it depends on the series and episode. I am a lot more familiar with TOS and TNG, followed by (in order) DS9, Ent and Voyager. I do make corrections to clarify where I think something is lacking, or if there is something I find personally compelling that I want to emphasize. I do see that in other posts as well. Most of the time it's pretty straightforward CxV.

I think the compelling thing in a line by line is to appreciate the purity of the story as it exists as words on a page, you have to have good words to begin with. I enjoy reading and posting the line by line as it makes me appreciate the writers seminal contribution to the episode. Obviously some episodes (and series) are better than others in that regard.

In terms of this episode, it's a pretty good one, though it does have an overall tying-up-loose-ends feel to it. There are some good words in there though, Bashir, Ezri, and Quark in particular seem to have the best lines. There is quite a lot of battleish one word responses to orders which bloat it on the page.
