    PICARD: We do exactly what we would do if this Q never existed. If we're going to be damned, let's be damned for what we really are.

    Personal log, stardate 41153.8. Of the twenty-four hours Q allotted us to prove ourselves, eleven have now passed without incident. And yet I cannot forget Q's prediction that we will face some critical test.

    Riker: This planet's interior heat provides an abundance of geothermal energy, sir. But it's about all this world does offer.

    Picard: And it's your belief that this is what made it possible for them to construct this base to Starfleet Standards?

    RIKER: Yes sir. We have to assume that they've been trading their surplus energy for the construction materials used here. According to our ship's scans, many of the materials used are not found on this world.

    Picard: Perhaps it's like those incidents you describe in your report, as almost magical attempts to please us.

    PICARD: None of it suggests anything threatening. If only every life form had as much desire to please. Ready to beam down? I'm looking forward to meeting this Groppler Zorn.

    TROI (telepathically to Riker): Do you remember what I taught you, Imzadi? Can you still sense my thoughts?

    TROI (speaking normally): A pleasure, Commander.

    ZORN: No objections to that, but but I'm puzzled over you bringing a Betazoid to this. If her purpose, sir, is to probe my thoughts

    TROI: I can sense only strong emotions, Groppler. I am only half Betazoid. My father was a Starfleet officer.
