[Warbird ward room]
TROI: You will plot a course for the Draken System.
Toreth: Oh, you can’t be serious.
TROI: Draken Four was the freighter's destination. I ordered the freighter destroyed because I recognised the Captain, a known Federation spy. Now we must deliver the cargo ourselves.
Toreth: We must…..
TROI: I do not intend to explain myself to you. You will set a course.
Toreth: In order to reach Draken, we will have to travel through Federation SPace for nearly 20 hours.
TROI: That is not a problem.
Toreth: Contrary to the propaganda, that your superiors would have us believe, Starfleet is neither weak, nor foolish. The chances of us reaching Draken undetected are not good.
TROI: We will be cloaked.
Toreth: The cloaking device does not always make us invulnerable. And you would know that if you had spent any time at all in the field. The Federation has littered its borders with subspace listening post, with gavitic sensors; they may even have a tachyon detection grid in operation in which case they will know that we’re there. If we are discovered in Federation territory it will be interpreted as an act of war.
TROI: The Tal Shiar has obtained access codes for the sensor nets. I will provide them if necessary.
Toreth: That will be no guarantee that we will escape undetected.
TROI: Your cowardice does not befit a Romulan soldier.
Toreth: People blame the military for the wars that we are asked to fight, but I think that it is your kind, Major, that will be the death of us all. (Warbird Bridge) Plot a course for the Draken system
Pilot: Course plotted, Sir.
Toreth: Prepare for warp.
PILOT: Commander, sensors are picking up a vessel. Our cloaking device is still engaged. They have not detected us.
Toreth: Activate Viewscreen. Enlarge.
N’Vek: It is the Enterprise, Commander.
Toreth: Well, Major, it appears your suspicions about the freighter were correct, after all. The Federation has come in search of its spies. Status.
