Picard: No, no, but I was going to. I would have told him anything. Anything at all. But more than that, I believed that I could see Five Lights.

The one thing that always stood out to me about this ep is that if you look at the way all the shots of Madred are framed and lit, you almost get the sense that there could be a fifth light that was always just out of camera range.

Congratulations, guys! I've been busy this weekend doing Easter stuff with the family, but I will get the randomizer going tomorrow and get us off on our next adventure.

In the meantime, Happy Easter everyone!

Re: "Chain of Command" Line-by-Line!

Ziz....

That's what I've always thought as well. I thought it would have been even more powerful for the camera to pan up to reveal that Madred had installed a fifth light in order to make Picard believe he was seeing a light that wasn't really there.

It would have made Madred all the more evil. We, the audience, would know that there really were five lights. However, at the end of the episode, Picard would have believed that he had been broken when he really hadn't.

The participants from our current thread are as follows:

1. CoveTom
2. Admiral Shran
3. LeadHead
4. Vulcan Princess
5. Brian
6. Enterprise1981
7. leandar
8. Vanyel
9. Ziz
10. KirkPicard

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. Special thanks to LeadHead for compiling the list!

(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*

Ziz!

Congratulations!!

So, Ziz, 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
Space Seed
Mirror, Mirror
The Tholian Web

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
Cause and Effect
Chain of Command

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
Far Beyond the Stars
The Homecoming/The Circle/The Siege
The Maquis

Voyager
Bride of Chaotica
Dark Frontier
Scorpion
Counterpoint

Enterprise
Shuttlepod One
Borderland/Cold Station 12/The Augments

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.

Cool! I didn't miss my shot this time. It's 8AM right now and I need to get out of here in a few minutes. I'll be back with my episode choice tonight.

CoveTom's usually been pretty slow on starting the Enterprise episodes. I'll give him till the end of the evening, then risk the wrath and start it.
