    Hello, Welcome!

    We've recently finished our "The Search" Line-by-Line over 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 Ziz! And Ziz has chosen "The Changeling" to be our next project!

    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 my Vorta Clone, CoveTom (:techman:) will pick someone at random from among all the participants to choose the next episode we do.

    Now, Captain Kirk, what are your orders?

    On the Bridge of the Enterprise...

    Kirk: Any response from the Malurians, Lieutenant?

    KIRK: What about the Federation science team working there? Doctor Manway had a special transmitter.

    SPOCK: Captain. They will not answer. The long-range sensor sweep of this system reveals no sign of life.

    KIRK: That can't be. The last census reported a total inhabitation of more than four billion people.

    SPOCK: We would have known in advance of any system-wide catastrophe, and in the event of an interplanetary war, there would be considerable radioactive residue. Our instruments show only normal background radiation.

    SPOCK: Unknown, sir. Sensor readings would have revealed the presence of any disease organisms. They do not. In addition, we received the routine report from this system only a week ago. Even the Symbalene blood burn does not act that swiftly.

    Sulu: Captain, shields just snapped on. Something heading in at multiwarp speeds.

    (The viewscreen fills with a ball of bright light.)

    SULU: It's going to hit.
