DeSeve: I understand.
RIKER: After Doctor Crusher declares you medically fit, you will be confined to your quarters until a court martial can be convened. Find some civilian clothes. I don't want to see you in that uniform.
Deseve: Yes, sir. Commander, I must speak with Captain Picard.
Riker: He's a busy man.
Deseve: Please, it's important... urgent.
Riker: I'll tell him.
(Later, Deseve is in his quarters under guard when Picard enters, at that, Deseve snaps to attention)
Picard: At ease. It's Captain, Actually.
Good job at forgetting that since you talked to Riker btw.
Deseve: Of course. I'm sorry, sir.
(I'm sure it was habit by this point)
Picard: You said it was important that I see you.
Yeah, I'm just saying, he comes off a bit dumb since in the previous scene he knew it without being reminded.
Deseve: Yes, Captain. I have a message from Ambassador Spock. He said it involves further... cowboy diplomacy, he said you would understand. There's a Corvallen freighter arriving in the Kaleb sector in the next twelve hours. Spock wants you to rendezvous...? with that ship, bring its cargo back to Federation space.
PICARD: What kind of cargo?
Deseve: He said it was important to the future of the Romulans and the Federation.
Picard: You have returned in order to give me this message?
Picard: In order to know whether Ambassador Spock's message is being delivered accurately, I need to now something about the messenger.
Deseve: I was ready to come back. Romulus had lost its appeal.
Whoops. repeat. sorry.
Picard: Yet at one time, you found something very appealing about it.
DeSeve: The Romulans are very moral, Captain. They have an absolute certainty about what is right and what is wrong, who is a friend and who is an enemy, a strict moral compass which provides them with a clarity of purpose. At one time I found their sense of purpose, their passion and commitment, to be very compelling.
