    Hello, Welcome!

    We recently completed E2 thread in the ENT forum!

    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 (like the Dominion Occupation Arc on DS9 or the Xindi Arc on ENT), each episode is a separate thread.

    Get ready for a story, here we go!

    BARTENDER: So tell me, why is it so important that you find this man?

    TROI: Maybe we can discuss that possibility. But first, I have to find him, collect the money I'm owed.

    TROI: If I don't find him, I'm going to have to move on. Are you sure you haven't seen him?

    BARTENDER: Human, about two metres tall, smooth-headed. No. I don't remember anyone like that.

    BARTENDER: And you're a Betazoid. I thought so. Listen, people who come in here, they count on a certain amount of anonymity. And if I were to start answering questions about them, even to a very beautiful woman, well, I wouldn't be in business very long. And being a businesswoman, I'm sure you understand.

    (and he goes off to serve another customer while at the other end of the bar)

    RIKER: Great story. I'll remember it next time I'm in a knife fight.

    (walks over to Worf)

    RIKER: Any luck?

    WORF: He would not admit to having seen the Captain, but he said that anyone who visited the ruins of Nafir would probably come here eventually. I suspect he knows more.

    YRANAC: The only reason I'm talking to you is that I have a sister, too.

    YRANAC: Family honour is important. If someone had defiled my sister I would do anything, pay anything, to find the one responsible.
