    How can we be prepared for that which we do not know? But I do know that we are ready to encounter it.

    Yes. Absolutely. That's why we're out here.

    Oh, the arrogance. They don’t have a clue as to what’s out here.

    But they will learn, adapt. That is their greatest advantage.

    You judge yourself against the pitiful adversaries you’ve encountered so far. The Romulans. The Klingons. They’re nothing compared to what’s waiting. Picard you are about to move into areas of the galaxy containing wonders more incredible than you can possibly imagine and terrors to freeze your soul. I offer myself as a guide only to be rejected out of hand.

    What justifies that smugness?

    Not smugness, not arrogance. But we are resolute, we are determined, and your help is not required.
