PILOT: Commander, cargo is on-board and secure.
TORETH: Tell me, is there a reason why the Commander of a ship is being kept ignorant of its cargo?
Troi: I don't know what you mean.
TORETH: I have been ordered to take on cargo but its contents are unknown to me. Does that seem wise? I am responsible for the safety of this ship and its crew. How do I know this cargo is safe to transport?
TROI: I'm sure it is safe; otherwise, it would not have been loaded.
TORETH: Ah. The Tal Shiar is deeply concerned for the safety and well-being of the military. I'm sure that every person on the Bridge of this ship could offer testimony about personal experiences with the Tal Shiar, but I doubt that many could recall those encounters as tender and caring. So I must ask you to forgive me, Major, if I hesitate to accept your assurances that that cargo presents no danger to my crew. I intend to open those containers.
TROI: That cargo is the property of the Tal Shiar. You will not touch it.
Toreth: On whose authority?
Deanna: Mine. And if you do not wish to undergo another personal experience with the Tal Shiar, I suggest you not question me again. Now, proceed on course bearing 102 mark 4 to the Kaleb sector.
Toreth: Why should we go to the Kayleb Sector? It's virtually deserted.
Deanna: Because those are your orders.
Toreth: Pilot, set course. Bearing 1-0-2 mark 4. Warp 6.
Pilot: Yes, Commander.
Enterprise in orbit of a planet
Captains Log Stardate 46519.1 We have arrived at Research Station 75 to take on a rather unique passenger, one whose homecoming will undoubtedly be difficult.
Worf: The man acted dishonorably. He is a traitor.
Crusher: He risked his life to get here. He spent 2 weeks alone on a Scout ship.
Worf: That does not excuse his original actions.
CRUSHER: Well, maybe he finally realized he made a mistake.
Riker: It's twenty years too late. Energize. (a man in a Romulan uniform is beamed in) Ensign DeSeve, by order of Starfleet Command, I am placing you under arrest for treason.
