    Greetings!

    We've recently concluded our "In a Mirror, Darkly Line-by-Line" thread in the Enterprise forum!

    After each completed thread, I'm randomly picking someone who participated to choose the next episode we do. The lucky winner this time around was Enterprise1981! And Enterprise1981 has chosen "Bread and Circuses" 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, I will pick someone at random from among all the participants to choose the next episode we do.

    Enjoy!

    Kirk: Then whatever destroyed the ship, the crew was able to get off safely. Navigator, compute the present drift of the wreckage.

    KIRK: Mister Spock, assuming that the wreckage drifted at the same speed and direction for the past six years?

    Kirk: Put it on the screen.
    The viewscreen shows a planet with lots of water, some land masses and just s few wispy white clouds.

    SPOCK: Different in shape only, Captain. The proportion of land to water is exactly as on your Earth. Density five point five, diameter seven nine one seven at the equator, atmosphere seventy eight percent nitrogen, twenty one percent oxygen. Again, exactly like Earth.
