    Ok, so has anyone heard from CoveTom or shall we do this again ourselves?

    He contacted me after I got the last one started, said things have been busy. I'll PM him now, I vote that we give him 24-48 hours to respond. If we there's no response, I'll run the randomizer and get things moving again like this time.

    Oh, I agree... My fav description of what its "like to be a Vulcan" comes from Season 6 of Voyager, "Muse". 2 primitives are putting on a play about "the eternals", one of which is a Vulcan. Kelis is the playwrite, and Jero is the actor.

    KELIS: Logical Tuvok doesn't cry! That's why they call him Logical!
    JERO: Everybody cries.
    KELIS: The land of Vulcan has no laughter, and it has no tears. It is a very quiet place, calm, just like Tuvok.
    JERO: I can't believe that.
    KELIS: You don't have to, just don't cry!
    JERO: The audience won't believe it either. They'll either think Tuvok is an unfeeling monster, or that I am a bad performer.
    KELIS: They'll realize that beneath your unfeeling exterior is a heart that's breaking. Silently, and in more pain than any of us can possibly understand, because that's what it is to be Vulcan

    Okay folks, so we gave CoveTom a couple of days to come in and set up our next episode, but he's a busy guy right now, so it might be awhile until he'd have the time to come and set up the next one. For the time being, I'll get things rolling here.

    I ran the Numbers here on this, CoveTom may not be around, but we stick to the method.

    Our contestants in Numerical order are:

    1. LeadHead
    2. leandar
    3. JanewayRulz!
    4. Orac
    5. Enterprise1981
    6. brian
    7. KirkPicard
    8. Vanyel
    9. Ziz

    I ran the random number generator on that magical talisman known as random.org, and our luck winner is:

    George Clooney

    What?! That can't be right. My sister grabbed the computer. :) Our real winner and chooser of the next episode is:

    brian

    So, brian the stage is yours, please select the next episode and I'll get the ball rolling again.

    Up to this point we have done the following episodes:

    Where No Man Has Gone Before (TOS)
    The Man Trap (TOS)
    The Menagerie (TOS)
    Journey to Babel (TOS)
    Requiem for Methuselah (TOS)
    Measure of a Man (TNG)
    Yesterday's Enterprise (TNG)
    Peak Performance (TNG)
    The First Duty (TNG)
    The Best of Both Worlds (TNG)
    Sins of the Father (TNG)
    The Visitor (DS9)
    Trials and Tribble-ations (DS9)
    The Way of the Warrior (DS9)
    Bride of Chaotica (VOY)
    Dark Frontier (VOY)
