JELLICO: So to speed up the process, you are preparing for war.
LEMEC: We are preparing to defend ourselves.
RIKER: The Federation will not start a war.
LEMEC: That has always been your position. However, I have heard reports that a small team from the Federation has already been sent into our territory. Of course, I don't believe it. Such an attempt would almost certainly fail, and even if it succeeded, it would trigger a very serious response on our part.
JELLICO: I don't know what you're talking about.
LEMEC: Then there's no need for worry. A short recess would seem to be in order.
JELLICO: Very well.
LEMEC: Where is Captain Picard?
LEMEC: Well, I hope his new assignment is not too dangerous. It would be a shame if something were to happen to such a, er, such a noted officer.
JELLICO: Yes, it would.
PICARD: Only a few more meters.
(Picard and Worf are clear when there's a small rock fall)
PICARD: Beverly, get out of there! Beverly!
(Worf scrabbles at the small rocks)
WORF: I have her.
(they pull her out of the now-blocked tube)
PICARD: Are you all right?
CRUSHER: I think so. Next time, you try bringing up the rear.
PICARD: We're nearly there. Can you continue?
(an incongruous metal door set in the rock wall)
PICARD: Looks like a maintenance hatch to the installation. I'm picking up three proximity sensors around it.
(Worf puts a device on the ground that sends out beams to the door)
WORF: Sensor echoes established, but the false image will only last a few minutes. The hatch is magnetically sealed, but I believe I can bypass it.
CRUSHER: I can't get a scan from the other side of the hatch. It's been shielded.
PICARD: We have no choice. Remember, aim low. Fire in short, controlled bursts.
