    Hello, welcome!

    We recently completed our "That Which Survives" Line-by-Line over in the TOS 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 Me! So I chose "Where No One Has Gone Before" to be 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, I or my Klingon Targ, CoveTom (:techman:) will pick someone at random from among all the participants to choose the next episode we do.

    Okay, lets see if we can upgrade the Enterprise's warp drive...

    The Enterprise and the USS Fearless fly through space together.

    Captain's Log: Stardate 41263.1. We have rendezvoused with the USS Fearless. From which a Starfleet Propulsion Expert and his assistant, are beaming over to conduct tests on the Enterprise's Warp Drive Engines. They have completed similar adjustments on 2 other Starfleet Vessels.

    On The Bridge,


    Picard: I don't understand your concern, Number One. They're not authorized to make any alterations in our engines. According to Starfleet's report, they will simply run tests on different ways of entering Warp Speed and different intermix formulas. Where's the harm in that?

    RIKER: It's the specs Kosinski sent us. In my opinion, sir, they're gibberish.

    Data: Sir, we put Mister Kazinski's specs into the computer and ran a controlled test on them. There was no improvement in performance.

    PICARD: Then how do you explain Starfleet's report that the same tests on the USS Ajax and on the Fearless over there resulted in a measurable increase in propulsion?

    RIKER: Our engines are new, sir. Top condition. The tests on those older ships may have simply straightened out some engine inefficiency.

    PICARD: (to Com) Stand by for Commander Riker, Chief. He's on his way.
    (to Riker) Obviously, something does worry you about these tests.

    KOSINSKI: A ship's engines should be a concern of the ship's captain.

    RIKER: They are, sir. Which is why they have made the first officer directly responsible for our engine's conditions and performance. Guided, of course, by one of our chief engineers, Lieutenant Commander Argyle in this case.
