Five-Minute "The Fall of Shadows"
Janeway: Well, here it comes -- the greatest crisis in my career. Where will it all end?|
Evans: In fire.
Evans: Sorry. There's this show I watch, see....
Janeway: I don't want to hear about it.
Gilmore: When shall we five meet again in thunder, lightning, or in rain?
Reporters: Captain! Did you--
Greskrendtregk: Welcome to my home, which is on Earth for some reason. How do you feel, my beloved daughter?
Despere: Remember me?
Torres: I'm so worried about what'll happen to me....
Seven: I like sneaking. Sneak sneak sneak....
Janeway: Mmm, thanks for the coffee. What's in it?
Hileya: The Equinox crew are the greatest monsters in history.
Despere: You've got problems, Tom. Big ones.
Seven: Sneaking, sneaking, da da da da da....
Louvois: The prosecution may make its opening statements.
Paris: Hi dad. Just dropping by to say hello and ask what horrible secret you're hiding.
Hileya: So you're Marla Gilmore?
Evans: Do you swear to tell the third edge of the sword of understanding?
Shelrak: I'm done with this witness.
Hileya: So what exactly did you do to those aliens?|
Tessoni: A deed without a name.
Pachano: But you had no choice -- tell the court what life was like on the ship.
Tessoni: Double, double toil and trouble. (Can we hurry this up? The five of us are running out of Macbeth lines.)
Chakotay: Captain Janeway's actions were completely justified at all times. She never did anything wrong at all.
Torres: You know, I've changed my mind. Being a Maquis was the best thing ever and Starfleet is a big barrel of monkeys.
Paris: WHAT? No way! You can't have Miral!
Shelrak: Tell the court what you think of Janeway's performance.
Torres: We have no choice...we'll have to flee Starfleet and become hunted fugitives, eventually landing jobs on a Klingon waste transfer barge.
Gilmore: Harpier cries 'Tis time, 'tis time.
Shelrak: Now, Mr. Tu--
T'Sai: Tell me, Tuvok...how did Janeway treat the Equinox crew?
Naomi: I miss Neelix. And Flotter. And especially Icheb, that hunky dreamboat.
Torres: How did it go?
Janeway: Sigh...being on trial sucks. How long have I been stuck in this building?
Barlett: The Equinox Five were busted and Janeway probably will be too. In other news, Seven of Nine, the notorious anti-shipper insurgent, is still at large; she was last sighted in Boston masquerading as a public-school teacher. If you see her in your area, contact the Special J/C Task Force at once.
