"Requiem for Methuselah" Line-by-Line

Welcome to the Thread!

We've had a whirlwind of a time recently with the line-by-lines, I'm hoping things are gonna stabilize at least for now.
Ordinarily our benevolent leader, CoveTom, would be posting this, but he has recently become busy, so I'm starting this round. Hopefully, he'll return soon. In the meantime, we've got an episode to do!

After each completed thread, I'm randomly picking someone who participated to choose the next episode we do. The lucky winner this time around was Orac! And Orac has chosen "Requiem for Methuselah" as our next line-by-line adventure!

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.

As before, at the conclusion of this thread, I will pick someone at random from among all the participants to choose the next episode we do.

Enjoy!

Re: "Requiem for Methuselah" Line-by-Line

Captain's Log: Stardate 5843.7. The Enterprise is in the grip of a raging epidemic. Three crewmen have died and twenty three others have been struck down with Rigelian Fever. In order to combat the illness, Doctor McCoy needs large quantities of Ryetalyn, which is the only known antidote for the fever. Our sensors have picked up sufficient quantities of pure Ryetalyn on a small planet in the Omega System. We are beaming down to secure this urgently needed material.

Spock: Strange. Readings indicate a life form in the vicinity, apparently human. Yet, ship's sensors indicated this planet was uninhabited.

Re: "Requiem for Methuselah" Line-by-Line

Kirk: Let's get that ryetalyn. (A strange device comes traveling through the air towards them. A bit like Nomad, but much smaller and with more round bits. It fires an energy beam at the landing party's feet. They try to fire their phasers.) Inoperative! (The device fires again, and closes in.)
