"Balance of Terror" Line-by-Line!

Greetings, programs!

We recently completed our "The Enemy Line-by-Line" thread over in the TNG 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. Random.org selected thread participant Enterprise1981 to be our next chooser. And Enterprise1981 has chosen the TOS classic "Balance of Terror" 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, we will pick someone at random from among all the participants to choose the next episode we do.

Enjoy!

Kirk: Maintain course to Outpost Four, keep me informed. Kirk out.

Kirk: Since the days of the first wooden vessels, all ship masters have had one happy privilege. That of uniting two people in the bonds of matrimony.
