Didn't we already have a quote from the Daedalus duology?

Thanks

Next up:

"You seem to be enjoying this" Kirk grumbled, making a sour face. " You mean, You aren't?" McCoy gave him a wide-eyed innocent look."I thought having several wives was the spacemans ultimate fantasy. Now you'll never have to worry about getting enough exercise"

Re: Bringing back an old game - Name the TrekLit Quote

I had read it recently okay next quote is.

“You humans operate on a set of tenets that are totally illogical. I find no rational way of explaining your actions, even at the best of times.” “I didn’t think so.” The doors opened and Kirk strode out onto the life-support control deck. The normally bustling activity had been quieted to a few crewmen wandering in a daze. Kirk simply stood and stared as one officer staggered by, obviously drunk.

Sorry I didn't provide the answer for the Armageddon Sky quote, but I was without internet for a week.

As for the new quote, I'll take a wild guess. Is it Mutiny on the Enterprise?

Re: Bringing back an old game - Name the TrekLit Quote

Guess I get to go again. Only took several pages.

Here's the quote:

A second series of scans of the Enterprise pointed most definitely toward an outbreak of the madness: violence was erupting on almost every deck. Indeed, after the incident, Commander Riker had exploded in uncontrolled fury and lept from his chair to physically strike another crew member. Within seconds, a brawl had erupted on the bridge.


Good luck...

That wouldn't happen to be from "Invasion! - The Soldiers of Fear"?

Was reading the old thread for the Star Trek quote game and saw this thread ended without an answer. I have no idea if the guy who posted it still lurks here but the quote sounds like a scene from "possession" a tng novel

If the mods want to just merge my thread with this one, I'm ok with that.
