Data: The metallurgical scan. Have you completed it?
WORF: I do not remember you asking me to. Captain, there is a Cardassian ship approaching. Galor Class.
Picard: Open a channel.
WORF: On screen.
Picard: This is Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the Starship Enterprise. You are in Federation territory. Please explain your presence here.
NADOR: We were wondering the same thing about you, Captain. Why would Starfleet's flagship want to venture so close to the Cardassian border?
Picard: We are repairing one of our subspace telescopes.
NADOR: I see. May we offer our assistance?
Picard: No, thank you. Everything is under control.
NADOR: If you don't mind my asking, what exactly is this telescope of yours designed to do?
Picard: It's a long range subspace Array. We use it for gathering data on astronomical phenomena.
NADOR [on viewscreen]: I'm certain it would never be used to observe a neighbouring species.
PICARD: Certainly not.
NADOR [on viewscreen]: Well then, best of luck with your repairs. Just try to make certain that your studies are limited to astronomical phenomena.
RIKER: Charming fellow.
WORF: Captain, that ship was responsible for reprogramming the Array.
Picard: What are you saying?
WORF: It is the same class and energy configuration as the ship we saw in the imaging logs.
PICARD: The imaging logs? Are you suggesting that you have evidence the Cardassians have tampered with the Array?
WORF: They are using the Array as a surveillance device. You saw the logs yourself.
