Default July 5



Welcome to Day 21, a.k.a. the straw that broke the camel's back. Sorry, folks, but it's finally happened: I've used up all the Kira-prepared or otherwise relatively simple CW material. The remaining updates require time, and between the math camp I'm running and Greek class, I just didn't have that time today. However, I do have some nice thematic filler: preview scenes!



Garibaldi: Petrov! What happened to you?
Petrov: They're... they're gonna kill...
(long pause)
Garibaldi: Well?
Petrov: I can't get the name out before I die, it's just not done. Ah, here we go. GAK!



Crichton: Listen buddy, we need to talk.
Molnon: Nope, you have to eat this mushroom first.
Crichton: Sure, why not? (CRUNCH!) Now as I was saaaayyyinnng... (FWUMP!)
Molnon: You lightweight! It was just a portobello.



Zero: Did you... stop... Vile?
X: I blasted him senseless, set him on fire, and threw him into the maw of a Sarlacc. He ain't comin' back.
Zero: Good. X... I'm not going to make it....
X: Don't be ridiculous, buddy! This is just a scratch!
Zero: I'm in three separate parts.
X: And each one is barely scuffed!


See, now you're in suspense for the rest of these fivers. It's like a cliffhanger. It fits the theme. Shut up. And be here tomorrow for Day 22: Revenge of the Bactrian Vertebrae!


(By the way, two of these are from fivers by me and one is from a FatMatDuhRat fiver. I can think of at least one forumgoer who will recognize each of the scenes... but will anyone recognize all three? More suspense!)

The first one is from the end of season one of B5, though the name escapes me. The others I really coulnd't say (I'm not even sure what the third one is from, though it probably has "Mega" somewhere in the title).

The first is definately B5, the second I think if Farscape, and I'm with Pointy on the Mega theory.

Zeke, you've done a bang-up job so far. 20 days is an amazing run.

Thanks for the support, guys.

B5 and Farscape are right for the first two. You're on the right track with the third; if no one else gets it, MaverickZer0 will recognize it instantly.

The first preview has gotta be from a B5 episode. That's my best guess because I've never seen the name "Garibaldi" featured in any other sci-fi show besides the one created by J. Michael Straczynski. (He's my uncle on my father's side of the family, & if you believe that then I know a bridge in Brooklyn that you can buy from me.)

I think the second preview is from Farscape. Call me crazy but those words look very familiar. I can't remember where I've seen them before... meh, I'm sure I'll figure it out when the Fiver gets published.

The third one... I have no idea, but I'm going to agree with PHJ that it may be from one of the Mega Man video games. (Just don't ask me which one, I haven't played any of them inna loooooong time!)

"Chrysalis" is the name of the episode I was looking for. I cannot for the life of me think what episode of Farscape the second one might be from though.

And, to echo the others: kudos on a job well done, Zeke.

The third one would seem to be from SW: TESB, but I ca't pick a scene.

Actually, I'm not the only one who should recognize it. You previewed a different part of it in the chat a while ago. Zero dying helped.

The third one's from near the end of Mega Man X. The first one.

I know the second one's Farscape, but don't ask me when, and I'm clueless on the first.

See? This is why blocking thread creation by non-members won't help.

What do you mean "see"? You never said anything of the kind.
