[color=#000000ost_uid0]Halfway through our celebrations, here's today's material:
    [*]Derek Dean brings us the next DS9 Mirror Universe episode with Five-Minute "Shattered Mirror"[*]Marc Richard also makes a contribution in his own section with Five-Minute "Remember Me"[*]One of my favorite [iost_uid0]X-Files[/iost_uid0] episodes happens to have an A/U theme, so here's Five-Minute "4-D", by me[*]And finally, our newest staff member tries his hand at our feature with Sleapers, part 4. Come to think of it, Derek's stand-alone tendency for bad puns means it's probably a good thing we didn't try to have a guess-the-author contest this year...[*]Speaking of last year's constest, now seems as good a time as any to announce what we've devised this year. It's not a contest, per say -- more like a game. Firstly, there is at one cameo per part by a guest author or a forumgoer. Some of the cameos are much better hidden than others, and I doubt any one forumgoer would be able to guess them all without putting their heads together with at least one other person. (You're welcome to try.) This isn't an official contest, just something to entertain you in the forums. (So don't bother emailing your guesses to any of us.) Secondly, in part 1, IJD mentions that we've been to at least thirty worlds, by his count. Well, we've dropped subtle and not-so-subtle references to places we've "sleaped" to throughout each part so you can try counting (and listing) all the worlds. I'm curious to see whether anybody can get them all. Hopefully you'll all have as much fun figuring these things out as we had putting them in.[/list][/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Well, I've got all the cameos, so far. I'll have to go back and check on the worlds thing. Another good batch from all.

Marc, liked these:
[quoteost_uid0]
Crusher: Computer, viewscreen on.
Computer: Why?
Crusher: Because the truth is out there.
Computer: Very well -- viewscreen on. What does the truth look like?
Crusher: Disturbingly like the inside of a very large ping-pong ball.
--------
Computer: The spherical universe we occupy is collapsing. Its periphery has just obliterated the forward edge of the ship's saucer section.
Crusher: Does that mean that Ten-Forward is now the Restaurant at the End of The Universe?
Computer: Very well put.
[/quoteost_uid0]Heh. [/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]>> Mirror Garak: This just in: Kira's always evil. <<

Now that's what I call a multi-layered joke. [/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0][quoteost_uid0]Crusher: But we do have one! Either that or I've gone completely mad!
Troi: Don't be so categorical. You may simply have gone partially mad.
Crusher: That does [iost_uid0]not[/iost_uid0] make me feel better.[/quoteost_uid0]
I like the Restaurant at the end of the Universe too.

[quoteost_uid0]Reyes: I'm telling you, there has to be some kind of mistake. John was with me.
Scully: I think you've misunderstood the whole "Agent Doggett has been shot" situation -- it's the shooter who needs an alibi, not the victim.
Follmer: The bullet that shot Doggett came from an FBI weapon, possibly belonging to someone in this room whose initials are M. R.
Reyes: But it couldn't have been me! I was with John when he was shot!
Scully: You really do have trouble with the concept of an alibi, don't you?[/quoteost_uid0]
Great scene.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]My favorite parts were

[quoteost_uid0]Crusher: Computer, viewscreen on.
Computer: Why?
Crusher: Because the truth is out there.
Computer: Very well -- viewscreen on. What does the truth look like?
Crusher: Disturbingly like the inside of a very large ping-pong ball.
...
Crusher: Does that mean that Ten-Forward is now the Restaurant at the End of The Universe?
Computer: Very well put.[/quoteost_uid0]
[quoteost_uid0]Doggett: Freeze, dirtbag!
Lukesh: By "freeze," do you mean "vanish into thin air and reappear behind me"?
Doggett: No, I mean --
Lukesh: (poof) Too late.
...
Follmer: The bullet that shot Doggett came from an FBI weapon, possibly belonging to someone in this room whose initials are M. R.
Reyes: But it couldn't have been me! I was with John when he was shot!
Scully: You really do have trouble with the concept of an alibi, don't you?
...
Reyes: There's only one possible explanation for this: a government conspiracy. No, wait, aliens. No, wait, super-soldiers. No, wait --
Doggett: (Parallel universes?)
Reyes: Of course! That explains everything! It's a government conspiracy to send super-soldiers to parallel universes to hide evidence of aliens!
Doggett: (Or you imagining things)
Reyes: Klingons do not imagine things!
...
Lukesh's Mother: And what's this score sheet that says "Lukesh 2, FBI 0"?
Lukesh: Here, let me update that. (writes on the sheet)
Lukesh's Mother: "Lukesh 3, FBI 0, Mom 0"? I don't underst-- GAK!
...
Reyes: A minor technicality. Do you have a better plan?
Skinner: Yes, but the ninjas won't be here until Tuesday.[/quoteost_uid0]

[quoteost_uid0]Zeke: But we're on a different world! And he might not even be a Sheriff on this world. He might just be some loser who practically lives on the internet and makes bad math jokes.[/quoteost_uid0]
:O [iost_uid0]OUCH![/iost_uid0] :lol:^3
[quoteost_uid0]Dean: Stop that. I ought to bring all four of you up on charges of battery for throwing that metal object at me.
Marc: Would those be positive or negative charges?
[/quoteost_uid0]

Great work, everyone! [/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]By the way, it still says "Through the Looking Glass" on the front page where it should say "Shattered Mirror".

What I've read so far is very funny by the way. I think I'm well on the way to a fatal laughter-induced death.[/colorost_uid0]
