TORETH: Tell me, Major, what do you think about his theories on the differences between the military and the Tal Shiar?
TROI: Which aspects are you referring to?
TORETH: Come now, Major. Surely you attended his classes regularly? It was Konsab's main theme.
TROI: Do you have a point to make, Commander? If so, it has escaped me.
TORETH: Commander Konsab believes that in order to function, military officers have to trust each other. The Tal Shiar, on the other hand, trust no one. They expect deception, so they always find it.
TROI: Your opinion of the Tal Shiar quite clear, Commander.
TORETH: I hope so.
Troi: We ensure the loyalty of the people. Do you believe the Empire would be better off without our protection?
TORETH: Protection? From what? How was the Empire threatened by the words of an old man, a devoted citizen who merely tried to speak his mind? How did the Tal Shiar protect the Empire by dragging him, my father, out of his home in the middle of the night?
Troi: Clearly, your father was a traitor.
TORETH: No. He was just an idealistic old man. I never saw him again.
TROI: I don't need your devotion, Commander. Just your obedience.
Toreth: And that's all you have.
PILOT [OC]: Commander, sensors are picking up an unidentified ship on an intercept course.
Troi, Toreth, N'Vek and others enter the bridge.
Toreth: What is the configuration?
PILOT: It appears to be a freighter, Commander.
TROI: Hail them.
Corvallen Captain: Commander, we are glad to see you. We are prepared to transfer your cargo, as agreed.
