T'Pol: "I won't dispute that."
Archer: I was thinking, a Vulcan Science Officer could come in handy, but if i asked you to stay it might look like I wasn't ready to do this on my own.
T'Pol: "Perhaps you should add pride to list."
< < She's going to be like this the whole journey, isn't she? Always getting that last word in... Maybe you'd better reconsider that job offer there, pinkskin?
I know a certain Andorian who'll be in the job market in a few years. Somebody who doesn't mind arguments that come to blows... providing you can put up with all that casual racism.
Archer: Perhaps I should.
T'Pol: "It might be best if I were to contact my superiors and make the request myself... with your permission?"
Archer: Permission Granted.
Archer and T'Pol leave Ready Room and enter the Bridge.
Archer: I hope none of you are in a hurry to get home. Starfleet seems to think we're ready to begin our mission.
Reed, Hoshi and Mayweather are all smiles.
Archer: I understand there's an inhabited planet a few light years from here.
^ That line of Archer's makes a great contrast to Voyager's predicament by the end of Caretaker. We're out here... let's go explore and not bother about going home just yet.
Malcolm Reed: "We've detected it, sir. Sensors show a nitrogen sulfide atmosphere."
Hoshi: Probably not humanoids?
Archer: "That's what we're here to find out."
"Prepare to break orbit and lay in a course."
Mayweather: I'm reading an ion storm on that trajectory, Sir. Should I go around it?
Archer: "We can't be afraid of the wind, Ensign.
Take us to warp four."
We end on the beach front scene in cypia again. The model spacecraft (a moon shuttle? an earlier Warp 1 ship?) whizzes past out to sea. Finally straightened up and flying right.
The young boy is at the controls, while his proud Father looks on.
We did it ChristopherPike!
Methinks you and I should take on another episode.
Yeah, it wasn't easy... but we made it! 36 pages. Phew.
Actually it might be a better idea to help you all out with a Line-by-Line that's already up and running....
Since "Yesterday's Enterprise" has just got going. That's one of my favourite TNG episodes. More actively working on the same one can make light work of it.
I'm going offline to celebrate first. Catch you later.
*stands and applauds*
Great job! And thanks to both of you for taking us to the finish line.
I enjoyed the running commentary as much as revisiting the episode.
If you do launch another ENT episode, here's one fan who will be reading along, and adding a line or two when I get the chance.
Hey, good job, you guys, and everyone else who participated. You made a believer out of this skeptic. Very fun to read.
If Leadhead's agreeable... What's the most popular ENT episode? My mileage tends to vary wildly. Might be helpful to know other people's opinion. That way there's more chance of others knowing the best lines and chipping in.
There have been a lot of threads and polls in recent months about people's favorites / best episodes. Just do a search.
And hey, you can start here.
I'm game for another one. The episodes that I think more people might know are Shadows of P'Jem, Shuttlepod One, The Expanse, Twilight and Similitude.
That thread was a bit different, asking for what you would put on a "The best of Enterprise" dvd.
E2 is one of my favorite eps (possibly the favorite, though I've never come up with an absolute favorite for any series other than VOY). But I wouldn't put E2 on that dvd because it's too "fan wankish" and a lot would be lost viewing it without context. You want to be able to introduce someone to ENT with a best of dvd.
So, I love E2. I want that novel!!! (The story of Lorien and his people).
A lot of my other favorites were part of story arcs and hard to seperate. I did love Carpenter Street which is not that popular.. it was so different than a lot of eps but had a strong storyline.
All good eps, IMHO.
"E2" is one of my favorites as well. I don't know if it's popular enough for a "line by line" thread, but I probably have most of it memorized...
