"Time's Arrow" Line-by-Line

Hello, welcome!

We recently finished our "Tapestry" Line-by-Line here in the TNG forum!

After each completed thread, we're randomly picking someone who participated to choose the next episode we do. The lucky winner this time around was Circus Peanut! And Circus Peanut has chosen TNG's "Time's Arrow" 2 parter as our next Line-by-Line challenge!

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.

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, I or my evil temporal creature, CoveTom will pick someone at random from among all the participants to choose the next episode we do.

Okay, lets head to San Francisco!

Captain's Log Stardate 45959.1. The Enterprise has been recalled to Sector 001 on a priority mission. All we've been told is that evidence has been discovered indicating the presence of extraterrestrials on Earth, 5 centuries ago.

Scientist: The crew was having a problem with the regulators. Something inside the cavern was interfering with the phase conditioners. It turned out to be the cavern itself.

SCIENTIST: We've confirmed that no one has been in or out of this cavern in centuries, so we're left with a five hundred year old mystery.
