    JELLICO: Well, maybe there's something we can do to help. We'll launch a class five probe just before we reach the border. You could pick up the telemetry aboard the shuttle.

    (Jellico motions for Riker to come over.)

    JELLICO: Will.

    JELLICO: I believe we're scheduled to arrive at the Cardassian border during delta shift. Please inform the delta tactical officer that I want to launch a class five probe just before we drop out of warp.

    RIKER: I was actually going to talk to you about delta shift a little later, sir. Right now, gamma shift will be on duty when we arrive and I will tell Lieutenant McDowell about the probe.

    RIKER: There is no delta shift yet, sir. I have spoken to the department heads about changing from three shifts to four, and they assure me it's going to cause us significant personnel problems.

    JELLICO: So you have not changed the watch rotation.

    JELLICO: You will tell the department heads that as of now the Enterprise is on a four shift rotation. I don't want to talk about it. Get it done. Now that means delta shift will be due to come on duty in two hours. I expect you to have it fully manned and ready when it does. Is that clear?

    JELLICO: Of course he is, Jean-Luc. I'm sure it'll all work out.

    (some time later)

    Captain's log, stardate 46358.2. The Enterprise is on course for a rendezvous with the Cardassian ship Reklar. Fortunately, I still have time to prepare the ship and crew for the task ahead.

    Jellico, Riker, and Data are at the tactical station.

    JELLICO: I want you to install a bypass between the main phaser array and the secondary generators. I also want to run the main deflector pathway through the warp power grid and the auxiliary conduits through the lateral relays. You may have to reconfigure the transfer interface.

    Data: Sir, the transfer interface was nor designed for that configuration. It will take 7 hours to make those changes.

    RIKER: Sir, you may not be aware that our normal interface already routes auxiliary power through three separate relays.

    JELLICO: I'm aware of your current design system. It's not good enough. If these negotiations fail, we could find ourselves in a war zone and if that happens I want to be loaded for bear.

    JELLICO: Good. Now these stations should be devoted to damage control and weapons status from now on. See that they're manned at all times.
