    Greetings!

    We've recently concluded our "All Good Things..." Line-by-Line thread over in the TNG 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 KirkPicard! And KirkPicard has chosen "The Doomsday Machine" as our next line-by-line adventure!

    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 will pick someone at random from among all the participants to choose the next episode we do.

    Enjoy!

    PALMER: The distress call definitely came from one of the solar systems in this sector.

    Palmer: Negative. It was so badly garbled all we got was the name Constellation, then we lost it.

    Sulu: Sir? We're now within the limits of System L-370, but I can't seem to locate...

    Spock: Captain, sensors show this entire solar system has been destroyed. Nothing left but rubble and asteroids.

    Kirk: That's incredible. The star in this system is still intact. Only a nova could destroy like that.

    Spock: Nonetheless, Captain, the sensors show nothing but debris where we charted seven planets last year.

    ^^Finishing:
    Sulu (cont.): Entering limits of System L-374, sir. Scanners show the same evidence of destruction.

    Kirk: Every solar system in this sector blasted to rubble and still no sign of the Constellation. Matt Decker's in command, what could have happened to him?

    Spock: Have it on sensors, Captain. By configuration a starship, stopped in space. She appears to be drifting.

    Kirk: Approach course, Mr. Sulu.

    (They find a ship hanging in space and looking identical to the Enterprise)

    Kirk (cont.): It's the Constellation. Look at that!
