    Hello and Welcome!

    We recently finished our "How Sharper than a Serpent's Tooth" Line-by-Line over in the TOS forum!

    After each completed thread, using a Random Number Generator, we choose the person who gets the keys to the car and selects the next episode.

    This time around, Random.org selected Athena28 as our winner. Athena28 chose "Workforce" to be our next Line-by-Line adventure!

    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.

    As before, at the conclusion of this thread CoveTom, leandar, Enterprise1981, LeadHead or I will run the randomizer to determine who will pick the next episode and get it going.

    [Power distribution plant]

    (On a modern planet, with a railway bridge running over a wide river through the middle of the city, workers of all races and species are walking down a metal staircase from the station. Janeway is in a blue leather suit. She takes the express lift down to a mid level walkway and into the plant.)

    JANEWAY: Excuse me, can you tell me where I can find the supervisor?

    Supervisor: Well, it's easy to get disoriented when you're new here. I've been in this city all my life and I still get lost on occasion. Now you'll be monitoring the primary reactor coils. They process more than eight thousand

    JANEWAY: Thanks.
