Another hint would be nice.
It's a book with a one-word title.
Don't go guessin' every one-word numbered TNG book title all at once, though, that's hardly fair. :P
Imbalance by V.E. Mitchell ?
I think I'm beginning to see why the old game died a death...
We just gotta pick more obvious quotes, I guess.
I'm atrocious at these games anyway so I'm no judge - but you should maybe set a limit of something like "3 hints and if you don't get it then, reveal the answer and let someone else pick a quote"
Imbalance? (The only Trek book I've ever started and not finished.)
Obviously you haven't finished reading this thread either. I have guessed that earlier.
^ No, I'm Spartacus!
(Sorry, couldn't resist. Well, okay, I could've resisted, but I chose not to.....)
Any of these?
Reading isn't one of your strengths, huh:
I was waiting for at least a handful of people guessing after my last try before making a new guess, and I think others did likewise, but you had to post 4 at once.
And I never really read the early TNG stuff. I have them just never read them.
Well, you got it, Steel. It's Intellivore - obviously a Trek novel that's made a huge impact on the Trek community Ah well. I just liked the name of the novel, that's why I picked it up and read it - not Duane's best book.
Go ahead and pick your quote, but try to make it something people will recognize because otherwise this thread will qualify for the most boring of all time, and I don't want to be responsible for that.
And, trampledamage, good suggestion: from now on, no more than 15 or so guesses. A hint is allowed from the OP of the quote for every 5 wrong guesses, if necessary. If after 3 hints nobody gets it, then someone new gets to post a quote.
Also, new rule: no more than two guesses per user per calendar day. That should keep things fair.
Okay, here's my quote:
Although Standared procedure, the stringet security measures felt more time-consuming than usual tonight, so impatient was Shannon to reach her final destination. She tapped her fingers restlessly against the dashboard as the Jeep's headlights fell upon a large hangar door built into the side of the mountain. An electric eye scanned the vehicle and its occupants, and the metal door rolled upward, well-greased gears making minimal clatter. The rising gate exposed a paved, man made tunnel that led directly into the zealously guarded heart of what the United States government, when grudgingly forced to acknowledge this installation's existance, reffered to simply as the "Groom Lake Facility."
Better known to the world as Area 51.
Eugenics Wars: The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh, Book One?
Damn I did not think someone would get it that fast. I thought this would be a bit tougher.
Let's see your quote.
Separate names with a comma.
