    Hello, Welcome!

    We recently completed our "The Catwalk" Line-by-Line in the Enterprise 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 "I, Mudd" 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, leandar, Enterprise1981 or one of our other great members of Team "Line-by-Line" will run the randomizer to determine who will pick the next episode and get it going.

    Okay, anybody remember what the penalty for fraud is on Deneb 5?

    Spock and McCoy walk through an Enterprise corridor and encounter a new crew member in a Blue uniform.

    Norman: Good morning, Sir. Doctor.

    McCoy: Yes. There's something odd about that man and I can't quite pinpoint it.

    Spock: Perhaps you're making a rather hasty judgment. Mister Norman has only been aboard 72 hours.

    McCoy: I know when something doesn't strike me right and he doesn't.

    Spock: Specifics, Doctor. Labels do not make arguments.

    MCCOY: All right. There's something wrong about a man who never smiles, whose conversation never varies from the routine of the job, and who won't talk about his background.

    McCoy: Spock, I mean that it's odd for a non-Vulcan. The ears make all the difference.

    Spock: I find your argument strewn with gaping defects in logic.

    McCoy: Maybe, but you can't evaluate a man by logic alone. Besides, he has avoided 2 appointments that I've made for his physical exam without reason.

    Spock: That's not at all surprising, Doctor. he is probably terrified of your beads and rattles.

    (Norman enters.)

    Jordan: Command personnel only.

    (Norman knocks him out and makes changes to the various control panels. A 'Danger, Overload' light comes on.)
