    LAFORGE: Exactly. But you can't always go with your gut either. It's a combination, Data. Right, I'll put it to you this way. All these feelings that get in the way of human judgment, that confuse the hell out of us, that make us second guess ourselves, well we need them. We need them to help us fill in the missing pieces because we almost never have all the facts.

    DATA: So a person fills in missing pieces of the puzzle with his own personality, resulting in a conclusion based as much on instinct and intuition as on fact.

    LAFORGE: Data. Look at this. The facts just took a left turn.

    DATA: As the probe went into orbit around Nelvana Three, it began picking up low level subspace radio emissions.

    LAFORGE: We've tried. It's probably Romulan but we can't be sure. We've also picked up ionisation disturbances.

    LAFORGE: Reading nothing but barren rock. I don't know. They might be able to hide a base from our probe. Its capabilities are limited. The only way we'll know for sure is if we go and take a look for ourselves.

    Later in Ten Forward, Data stares at Setal

    Setal: I take it that you have never seen a Romulan before.
