WORF: What do we know about Celtris Three?
PICARD: Very little. It was thought to be uninhabited until these emissions were detected. Starfleet believes that the Cardassians may have a secret research lab located somewhere below the planet surface. Our orders are to penetrate this Celtris Three installation and determine if the Cardassians are actually building a metagenic weapon.
CRUSHER: And if they are?
PICARD: Destroy it. At any cost. When I was on the Stargazer, we conducted extensive tests using theta band carrier waves. One of the reasons I was selected for this mission is my familiarity with the methods used for generating them. Mister Worf, your presence here is obvious. Doctor, your job will be to locate and destroy any biotoxins we may find.
Worf: Celtris III is in Cardassian space. How will we get there undetected?
PICARD: I know a way of acquiring some discreet transport. Mister Worf, set a course for Torman Five.
(Picard is directed to the person he is looking for.)
SOLOK: If he doesn't pay up, I know three large Ferengi who will not be so forgiving.
As our trio stand around, the person the little Ferengi was talking to leaves in a hurry.
SOLOK: I didn't do it.
PICARD: I'm not accusing you of anything.
SOLOK: What do you want then?
PICARD: We're looking for DaiMon Solok.
PICARD: I have a business proposition to discuss.
SOLOK: Solok is a very busy, very important man. He isn't here. (Worf sits him down again) But I could relay a message.
PICARD: Good. Please, will you tell DaiMon Solok that we're interested in transportation to Celtris Three?
SOLOK: That's a Cardassian planet.
PICARD: Now, we understand that DaiMon Solok runs cargo there from time to time.
Solok: Solok is no smuggler.
PICARD: Yes, but if Solok were to go to Celtris Three for legitimate reasons, we would be interested in quietly booking passage for the journey.
SOLOK: I don't think he would be interested in dealing with Federation spies.
Crusher sits down near Solok
Crusher: (damsel in distress voice) You know, I heard that Solok is quite a man.
