I was re-reading over some of the chatlogs this morning in preparation for one of the scripts, and found myself looking at the kidnapping of Phil. I know this was a very momentous event, as evidenced by some of the chat logs that follow, but the log doesn't really give the full story. I know Brian and Daed were there, maybe others. Could you guys tell the story as you remember it, with as many details as you can? Many of have heard the general idea, but I don't know that I have a clear picture in my head of exactly what happened. Would you mind sharing with us?

I'll admit this isn't purely personal interest. At some point we'll hafta write a script for this event, and the more info we can get from primary sources the better!

Well, I finally sat down with the chat log and made a script of it. I consulted heavily with Daedalus, who was there for the event and remembered it well. Also got some points out of Brian who was there too. I think we've done a thorough job reconstructing events and are as accurate as we're going to get, so we got a bunch of filming done today! The first part of the script needs finalizing, especially to have some of the philosophical discussion weeded out of the first part, since much of it isn't necessary to the story.

If you'd like, maybe you can get the whole story through the episode? Very Happy Tell us how educated you feel when you've seen it?
