CRUSHER: Ok ok.
Data: Have I said something to upset you?
CRUSHER: It's just that, that was a long time ago, and I don't want to be known as the dancing doctor. Again.
Data: Then your answer is no?
CRUSHER: All right. But let's keep this between you and me.
Data: Of course, Doctor.
PICARD [OC]: Commander Data, please report to the Bridge.
[Bridge] (T'Pel is with Picard)
PICARD: Data, I want a tactical projection of possible future Romulan deployments along the Neutral Zone. Access all Federation records on the subject and report to my Ready Room.
Data: Captain. Is there a more specific area you wish me to study?
PICARD: No. Ambassador. Number One set a course one three zero mark two four six, warp seven.
Riker: That will take us very close to the Neutral Zone, Captain.
PICARD: I'm aware of that, Number One. Proceed.
Riker: Lay in the course.
DATA [OC]: It is fortunate that I am able to perform my duties without emotional distractions. If that were not the case, a sudden course correction toward the Neutral Zone would make me very nervous.
DATA [OC] Personal Log, supplemental. Commander Maddox, there are still many dynamics of social interaction which I do not understand
DATA: Their ships are deployed to support a policy of confrontation designed to test Federation defenses along the Neutral Zone.
Picard’s Ready Room
Picard: Mr. Data, based on your analysis, what is the current Romulan strategy behind the deployment of their ships in this sector?
Data: Their ships are deployed to support a policy of confrontation designed to test Federation defenses along the Neutral Zone.
Picard: Do you predict any change in the near future?
DATA: I project a ninety percent probability that they will continue to support that policy.
Picard: And is there any indication of a more conciliatory attitude on their part?
DATA: No sir.
