    Hello, welcome!

    We recently finished our "Tribunal Line-by-Line" in the DS9 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 Enterprise1981! And Enterprise1981 has chosen the two parter ''Homefront"/"Paradise Lost" 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, LeadHead, or CoveTom, or leandar, or even I (if we've been waiting a while) will run the randomiser to determine who will pick the next episode and get it going.

    So let's go... to Earth! :bolian:

    A crowd of people are watching the wormhole open and close without any ships coming through.

    DAX: There it goes again. That's the seventh time in the last two hours.

    DAX: It seems to be opening and closing completely at random. No unusual readings, no ships coming through. For all we know, the Bajorans are right. Maybe it is a message from the Prophets.

    DAX: Maybe the Prophets don't recognise you with the new beard.

    SISKO: There has to be a scientific explanation for this. Something funny, old man

    QUARK: So then, the Andorian says "That's not my antenna." Why do I bother?

    ODO: You find all this very funny, don't you? You and Dax probably planned it together.
