    Hello, Welcome!

    We recently finished our "Errand of Mercy" Line-by-Line over in the Original Series forum!

    After each completed thread, using an extremely complex and technobabble-laden device (minus the standard Voyager big red, reset button) called a Random Number Generator, also known as random.org, we select our winner and they are handed the keys to the torpedo tube for the next thread.

    And our winner was: leandar! Our heroic and brave victor chose "Death Wish" 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 CoveTom, BlueStuff, leandar or LeadHead, or SOMEBODY will run the randomizer to determine who will picks the next episode and get it going.

    A comet is on the viewscreen.

    CHAKOTAY: It's trajectory is erratic, and our sensors aren't detecting any stellar or planetary gravitational fields that could account for its motion.

    Janeway: Then you're saying it isn't a comet.

    Chakotay: And yet it looks, feels and tastes just like a comet.

    JANEWAY: Well, there's a slight chance that there are magnetodynamic forces acting on the comet that are too subtle for our sensors to detect. Or it might be something we've never encountered before. B'Elanna, go down to Transporter room two. Let's beam aboard a sample for examination.

    A stocky male figure in a Starfleet command uniform appears, and walks through the containment field.

    QUINN: Hello. My name is Q.

    (Quinn zaps himself over to Torres and speaks into her comm. badge.)

    QUINN: Oh, please don't bother, Captain. Let me take you to lunch instead.

    (Quinn gestures and vanishes.)

    Quinn and Janeway appear in the Mess Hall. Quinn starts shaking Janeway's hand.

    Quinn: What a pleasure it is to meet you. Oh, am I doing this right? It's been so long since I've had the opportunity to greet anyone. Oh, here, take a seat. Allow me to make the setting more appropriate.

    The Standard Starfleet Table and chairs is replaced with a new fancy table and chairs, complete with tablecloth, candles, fine silverware and plates, etc.

    Janeway: My name is Kathryn Janeway, Captain of the Federation-

    QUINN: The Federation Starship Voyager. Yes, yes, I know all that. Look, Welsh rarebit like your grandfather used to make.
