    Hello, welcome!

    We recently finished our "Breaking the Ice" Line-by-Line over in the ENT 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 BlueStuff! And BlueStuff has chosen TNG's "Tapestry" 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, an evil Nausican, CoveTom :rommie: will pick someone at random from among all the participants to choose the next episode we do.

    Okay, time to welcome Jean-Luc to the afterlife!

    In sickbay, Crusher and her team scramble, preparing for an incoming medical emergency.

    Crusher: Bring the stasis units in here, and have them online.

    (Worf is carrying Picard, Riker and a security man have their phasers out, and a security woman is supporting an injured colleague)

    MEDIC: Let's go, let's go. Get him on here.

    CRUSHER: He's in cardiac arrest. Connect the pulmonary support units. He's got internal haemorrhaging. The bioregulator of his artificial heart's been fused. He's got liver and spleen damage.

    CRUSHER: Forty cc's inaprovaline. The activity in the isocortex is falling. Cortical stimulators. Now. (Picard jerks) Again. His respiratory system is shutting down. The levels in the isocortex are still falling. Damn. Prepare a four percent series...

    (A bright white void. There is a figure also in shimmering white nearby). Picard touches it's hand and then sees who it is.)
    Q: Welcome to the afterlife, Jean-Luc. You're dead.

    Q: I told you. You're dead. This is the afterlife, and I'm God.

    Q: Blasphemy! You're lucky I don't cast you out, or smite you or something. The bottom line is your life ended about five minutes ago, under the inept ministrations of Dr. Beverly Crusher.

    Picard:: No. I am not dead. Because I refuse to believe that the afterlife is run by you. The universe is not so badly designed.

    Picard: "No... I am not dead. [Because] I refuse to believe the Afterlife is run by you, the universe is not so badly designed"

    (One of my favorite lines in the series.)

    Q: Very well. If you really require more evidence of your post-mortem status, I guess I'll just have to provide you some.
