    Greetings!

    We recently finished our "Rocks and Shoals Line-by-Line" 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 MickJo1701! And MickJo1701 has chosen "Year of Hell" 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, LeadHead, or CoveTom, leandar, or one of our other fine fill-ins when we're all busy will run the randomizer to determine who will pick the next episode and get it going.

    Now, time to kick off the Year of Hell.

    Day 1

    It's morning in a futuristic metropolis when a large monstrosity of a ship suddenly blocks out the sun and vaporizes the entire city.

    OBRIST: Temporal incursion is complete. All organisms and man-made objects have been eradicated.

    Annorax: Probe the continuum. Has our target event been achieved?

    Obrist: Negative. Negative target event. I don't understand, sir. We spent months making these calculations.

    ANNORAX: Time is patient, so we must be patient with it. Eradicating a single Zahl colony wasn't enough for a total restoration. We have to work on a larger scale. Take us to the Zahl homeworld. Prepare a new set of calculations. We must erase the entire species from time. Every lifeform, every molecule.

    Voyager, the new astrometrics lab

    Janeway: Space, the great unknown, only now we're going to know it a little better. Harry?

    CHAKOTAY: Before there were maps and globes, let alone radar and subspace sensors, mariners navigated by the stars. We're returning to that tried and true method, but this time there's a difference.

    Janeway: Ensign Kim and 7 of 9 have merged Starfleet and Borg ingenuity to create this new technology, and I'm sure I speak for the entire crew when I say, thank you. Now, how the hell does it work?

    Seven: Astrometric sensors measure the radiative flux of up to three billion stars simultaneously. The computer then calculates our position relative to the centre of the galaxy.

    Kim: This mapping technology is ten times more accurate than what we've been using. Seven, will you do the honours? We've plotted a new course home.

    SEVEN: By my estimates this trajectory will eliminate five years from your journey.

    TORRES: That region of space we're about to enter; it looks like it has a lot of M-class planets.

    7: Technologically advanced but non-confrontational. Their resistant quotient is quite low.

    The Doctor: I'd like to say a few words if I may. I've prepared a speech for this occasion. When I was first activated on Stardate 48315, and I found myself mano a mano with the Delta Quadrant I didn't think we'd survive a week, let alone three years. There was strife. There was discord. You were all at each others throats. But over time, I've had the pleasure and pride of watching this crew learn to work together as colleagues, even friends.

    The Doctor: Who would have thought that this eclectic group of Voyagers could actually become a family? Starfleet, Maquis, Klingon, Talaxian, Hologram, Borg even Mr. Paris. Granted, we've had our share of difficulties. One might say, we've seen the Best of Times and the Worst of Times. I'd now like to recount some of those times from my unique perspective. Under the category of 'Best of Times' I invite you all to recall the moment when I...
