Default July 1

It's 5MD: The Third Anniversary: The Final Chapter! Lots of contributors today....
  • ...starting with the man himself, Derek. Last year, he created a comic adaptation of his "In the Hands of the Prophets" fiver, one of the six season finales with which he launched 5MD. This year he's done the next one. Here's Five-Minute "The Jem'Hadar": The Comic Adaptation.
  • Next up is staffer Sa'ar Chasm with "Rivals." While I was making this update, I discovered that Sa'ar's "Sanctuary" fiver from '04 had gone missing, probably when we changed to PHP. I've restored it now -- might want to read it in case you missed it before.
  • Next is Nate with "Rules of Engagement." I nearly went with his "Hard Time" fiver, but this event has tortured O'Brien enough already.
  • Finally, here's my own contribution: "In the Pale Moonlight," a brilliant episode I've wanted to hit for a while now.
Nine new fivers and a comic -- feels good after all that downtime, no? With that, and a tip of the hat from me to Derek for his third excellent year, this subsite anniversary event concludes. On to the next one!

(Oh, and happy Canada Day.)

Yet another set of good fivers. Mr. Leslie would give a look of aprroval without saying anything or reacting visually. Might go bridge-diving, though.

Happy Canada Day!

Great comic, Derek, and great fivers, all.

My dad always says not to waste time worrying. That's easy when your biggest worry is a random inspection by the FSPCA, but I had just gambled the entire Federation on a forgery. Hm, maybe Dad should have been worried about that too. Anyway....

It all started with the casualty list. Every Friday I have to post the latest "Sucks To Be These Casualties" notice from Starfleet.

O'Brien: You said it. If they didn't turn a blind eye and a pointed ear to the Jem'Hadar crossing their territory....
It was then that I reached a decision: whatever it took, I would convince the Romulans to either enter the war or round off their ears.

I love this scene for some many different reasons.

Quote:

Sisko: I get the picture. So... um. Well. What if... money?
Quark: First bribe, huh?
Sisko: Does it show?
This one, too.

Garak: I've found a seller, but he wants to be paid in bio-mimetic gel.
Sisko: What? That stuff is more dangerous than antimatter radiation! Or talking about it, even!
Garak: I'm afraid he wouldn't budge on this point, Captain. It's bio-way or the highway.
Sisko: Groan. Why can't we just give him some of Odo?
There's plenty more Odo where that bit came from. Although...if he doesn't eat or drink, how does he make more goo?

Classic Zeke scene.

I liked the chorus line of Troll dolls, and the tables for the running scorecard.

Yeah, liked those, and the addition to the image with Jake's "fermentation" line. Heh.

Yeah, about Vulcan Love Slave. Can anyone remember which episodes mention it? And for that matter, does Part One get a mention before Part Two: the Revenge is?

I know it's mentioned as one of the two books almost every Ferengi owns. (The other is, of course, the Rules of Aquisition)

Sisko: I just think the Romulans might get snippy with him because of his species. You shouldn't have that problem.
Excellent.

Great fivers, all.

Glad everyone enjoyed the fivers. Special thanks to all those guest fivists who have been fiving and keeping 5MD going. Special thanks also to Zeke who keeps the whole site going. It's been a great three years, and hard to believe it's been three.

I agree. Totally and unconditionally beyond shadow of a doubt there that should be long enough to keep the board software happy.

Forgot to mention this. I discovered something interesting when I was working on the "Pale Moonlight" fiver. Take a look at the script and search for the phrase "pacing in his office". You'll find a Sisko/Dax scene that was cut from the episode, taking place while Vreenak is inspecting the forged datarod. Personally, I think cutting it was probably best, but it's very interesting. What do you guys think?

(Also, to my great satisfaction, Ben's grammar mistake -- "The soufflé will either rise or it won't" -- wasn't in the script. There's no "either.")
