    Line by Line players, I did not expect to see you again so soon!

    We've recently finished our "Emissary" Line-by-Line over in the DS9 Forum!

    After each completed thread, I'm randomly picking someone who participated to choose the next episode we do. The lucky winner this time around was leandar! And leandar selected "The Defector" as out next 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.

    As before, at the conclusion of this thread, I or the Relief Picther, CoveTom (:rommie:) will pick someone at random from among all the participants to choose the next episode we do.


    Lets get going!

    On the holodeck, at an English Camp in Agincourt

    Williams: (Patrick Stewart in Makeup) Brother John Bates, is not that morning which breaks yonder?

    It is?


    BATES: I think it be, but we have no great cause to desire the approach of day.



    (great choice, by the way leandar!)

    Whoops, I copied and pasted the last time I put the write up for the first post in, which was The Squire of Gothos, thought I'd removed everything that I needed to. Missed that.

    Williams: Who's there?

    Bates: He hath not told his thought to the king?

    DATA: No, nor it is not meet he should. For though I speak it to you, I think the king is but a man, as I am. The violet smells to him as it doth to me, in his nakedness he appears but a man. Therefore, his fears, out of doubt, be of the same relish as ours are. Yet no man should possess him with any appearance of fear, lest he, by showing it, should dishearten his army.

    Bates: He may show what outward courage he will, but I believe, as cold a night as 'tis, he could wish himself in Thames up to the neck.

    BATES: Or more than we should seek after. If his cause be wrong, our obedience to the King wipes the crime of it out of us.

    Williams: But if the cause be not good, the king himself hath
    a heavy reckoning to make, when all those legs and
    arms and heads, chopped off in battle, shall join
    together at the latter day and cry all 'We died at
    such a place.'

    Picard: Data, you're here to learn about the human condition and there is no better way of doing that than by embracing Shakespeare. But you must discover it through your own performance, not by imitating others.
