    TROI: I wouldn't call it resistance. More like uncertainty. Most of them had served under Captain Picard for several years. They knew him, they knew what he expected. Now they're being asked to adjust to a new captain and a new way of doing things, and they're uncertain how to react.

    JELLICO: I see your point. This all could be very unsettling to them.

    TROI: And to you. Perhaps everyone just needs some time. Time for you to get to know and trust the crew, and time for them to understand how you want things done.

    JELLICO: I'm glad you brought this to my attention, Deanna. Unfortunately, I don't have time for a honeymoon with the crew. You've clearly given this a lot of thought, so I'd like you to take charge of the morale situation. Please see to it that they make the adjustment to the new routine quickly and easily. I have a meeting with the new Security Chief in five minutes, so the duty roster will have to wait. Thank you, Counselor. (Troi gets up to leave) By the way. I prefer a certain formality on the Bridge. I'd appreciate it if you wore standard uniform when you're on duty. (here, here)

    LAFORGE: Commander, he's asked me to completely reroute half the power systems on the ship, change every duty roster, realign the warp coils in two days, and now he's transferred a third of my department to Security.

    Riker: If it makes you feel better, you're not alone. Captain Jellico has made major changes in every department on this ship.

    LAFORGE: Yeah, well, I don't mind making changes and I don't mind hard work, but the man isn't giving me the time I need to do the work. Someone's got to get him to listen to reason.

    LAFORGE: Well then, can I make a suggestion? Talk to Captain Picard. Maybe he can do something. We just need a little time.

    (Picard staggers home weary and worn out from a hard day on the holodeck. Just as he manages to sit down the doorbell rings.)

    PICARD: Come.

    Picard: Yes I am. The last time I had to train like this, was for the Academy Marathon, but...I'm managing. What can I do for you?

    JELLICO: Well the Enterprise will be monitoring your channel just in case you do need to transmit a signal.
