I’ve had twelve years to think about it. And if I had it to do over again, I would have grabbed the phaser and pointed it at you instead of them. Maybe we better talk out here; the observation lounge has turned into a swamp. My oath is between Captain Kargan and myself. Your only concern is with how you obey my orders. Or do you prefer the rank of prisoner to that of lieutenant? Not if I weaken first. Flair is what marks the difference between artistry and mere competence.
What You’ll See
Mr. Worf, you do remember how to fire phasers? How long can two people talk about nothing? I’ll be sure to note that in my log. Shieldsup! Rrrrred alert! I recommend you don’t fire until you’re within 40,000 kilometers. For an android with no feelings, he sure managed to evoke them in others. Maybe if we felt any human loss as keenly as we feel one of those close to us, human history would be far less bloody. Some days you get the bear, and some days the bear gets you.
Where You’ll Go
Commander William Riker of the Starship Enterprise. What? We’re not at all alike! When has justice ever been as simple as a rule book? Wouldn’t that bring about chaos? Sorry, Data. Fate protects fools, little children and ships named Enterprise. I suggest you drop it, Mr. Data. When has justice ever been as simple as a rule book?
When You’ll Leave
A lot of things can change in twelve years, Admiral. Now, how the hell do we defeat an enemy that knows us better than we know ourselves? That might’ve been one of the shortest assignments in the history of Starfleet. We could cause a diplomatic crisis.
What to Bring
Take the ship into the Neutral Zone The Enterprise computer system is controlled by three primary main processor cores, cross-linked with a redundant melacortz ramistat, fourteen kiloquad interface modules. and attack the Romulans. Your shields were failing, sir.
