    Q: You are out of order!
    (Guns are placed at Data and Troi's heads)
    Q: Soldiers, you will press those triggers if this criminal answers with any word other than guilty. Criminal, how plead you?

    Picard (looks back at Tasha and Deanna and Data): Guilty. (The crowd cheers and Q appears satisfied) Provisionally! (The crowd silences)

    PICARD: We question whether this court is abiding by its own trial instructions. Have I have permission to have Commander Data repeat the record?

    PICARD: These will be your own words, your Honour. What exactly what followed his Honour's statement that the prisoner will not be harmed?

    DATA: Yes, sir. The Captain had asked the question, "Can we assume you mean this will be a fair trial?" And in reply the judge stated, yes, absolutely equitable.

    PICARD: Alright! We agree there is evidence to support the court's contention that humans have been savage. Therefore I say test us. Test whether this is presently true of humans.

    Q: I see, I see. And so you petition the Court to accept you and your comrades as proof of what humanity has become.

    PICARD: There must be many ways we can be tested. We have a long mission ahead of us.

    Q: Another brilliant suggestion, Captain. But your test hardly requires a long mission. Your immediate destination offers far more challenge than you can possibly imagine. Yes, this Farpoint station will be an excellent test.

    Q: Captain, you may find you are not nearly clever enough to deal with what lies ahead for you. It may have been better to accept sentence here.

    (A flash of light, and while Q speaks, Picard and the others find themselves back on the battle bridge. Everyone looks around, seeing that they have returned, meanwhile at conn, Chief O'Brien has no idea that the others ever left the ship)

    Data: What is present course, conn?
