    Greetings!

    We've recently concluded our "The Homecoming/The Circle/The Siege Line-by-Line" thread over in the DS9 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 Vanyel! And Vanyel has chosen the "Cause and Effect" 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!

    (Enterprise goes BOOM!!!!)

    Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. It's continuing mission: To explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations. To boldly go where no one has gone before.

    Captain's log, stardate 45652.1. The Enterprise has entered an area of space known as the Typhon Expanse. We're the first Starfleet vessel to chart this unexplored region.
