    Hello, Welcome!

    We recently completed our "Shattered" Line-by-Line over in the Voyager 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 Mach7! And Mach7has chosen "Arena" 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 CoveTom, BlueStuff, Enterprise1981 or even maybe leandar? Nah. :p will run the randomizer to determine who will pick the next episode and get it going.

    Okay, that take care of business, lets go to Cestus III, I hear they'll have baseball in about a hundred or so years. I wonder what it looks like now!

    The Enterprise is in orbit of Cestus III, in the transporter room...

    Kirk: You'll enjoy Commodore Travers, he sets a good table.

    MCCOY: I wonder if he brought his personal chef along with him to Cestus 3.

    Travers: (over comm) Be sure to bring along your tactical people. I've got an interesting problem for them.

    SPOCK: Captain; I wonder why he's insistent that our tactical aides come down.

    Kirk: This colony is isolated, exposed, out on the edge of nowhere. He probably wants additional advice.

    McCoy: Spock, isn't it enough the Commodore is famous for his hospitality? I, for one could use a good non-reconstituted meal.
