    Trois Quarters on the Warbird

    Troi: We have to get a message to the Enterprise.

    Troi: It's the perfect opportunity, the Enterprise is nearby. If we can communicate with them, the might be able to help us.

    N’Vek: Counselor, this ship is traveling under cloak. All of our electromagnetic emissions are being monitored. Any attempt at communication whatsoever and we would be discover instantly. It could not succeed. We must continue to Draken IV. That is the safest course.

    Troi: Is there anything you can do to the ship or the cloaking device that would let the Enterprise track us?

    N’Vek: Track us? No. We want to get into Federation territory undetected.

    Troi: What we want is to get the dissidents to safety. Now answer the question: is there a way?

    Troi: We're not playing it your way anymore N'Vek. I've been kidnapped, surgically altered, put in danger, I've gone along with all your plans, now you are going to listen to me! You find a way to let the Enterprise track us, or I'll got to Toreth and tell her I've discovered you're a traitor. I'll have you ejected into space, Is that clear Subcommander?

    N'Vek: There is one possibility. In order for a ship to remain undetectable while cloaked, the radiative emissions from the warp engines must be precisely balanced. The ship's Engineer is a sympathizer. He may be able to slightly misalign one of the nullifier cores. It would create a small magnetic disturbance in space whenever we were in motion.

    N'Vek: The effect would only be intermittent. They might not even detect it.

    Troi: If it’s the best we can do, we have to try it.

    N'Vek: Anything else would be immediately detected on the bridge. Even this slight misalignment may be detected.

    Troi: It’s a risk we have to take. You’re the one who outlined the stakes to me N’Vek, are you getting squeamish now just because things are getting a little more dangerous?

    Back on the Enterprise...

    Data: Sensors are picking up a polarized magnetic distortion to our port side.
