"Basics" Line-by-Line!

Greetings, programs!

We recently completed our "The Corbomite Maneuver Line-by-Line" thread over in the TOS forum.

After each completed thread, I, or my youthful ward LeadHead, randomly pick someone who participated in the thread to choose the next episode we do. The lucky winner this time around was LeadHead! And LeadHead has chosen the two-part episode "Basics" 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 is our standard practice, we're doing these two episodes as a single thread. Our "rule" is that if the episode has a "To Be Continued..." on the end, it is done in a single thread, but if it's just an arc of related episodes, each episode is a separate thread.

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

Enjoy!

SUDER: An entirely new species. I'm going to name it after you. The Tuvok Orchid.

Tuvok: That is an honor you should reserve for yourself, Mister Suder. You gave this species life.

SUDER: And you gave me life. All of this is because of you, because of the meld.

Tuvok: The Meld may have introduced you to my interest in floriculture, but you have embraced it entirely on your own, and discovered a unique talent within yourself in the process.

SUDER: I used to think the only talent I had was a talent for killing. Please. It's my way of saying thank you.

SUDER: Tuvok, I want to do something for the ship. I'm not asking you to let me out of confinement. I accept my punishment. But if I could just, just contribute somehow.

SUDER: I was, I was thinking I might adapt some of the genetic engineering techniques I've developed for the orchids to make the airponic vegetable garden more productive.

Tuvok: We will see. Now, shall we begin?

Tuvok and Suder Kneel on the floor

Tuvok: Notice your mind working, how it plans for the future, visits the past. Notice those thoughts and set them aside. Turn your attention to the white light that is your breath.
