    SETAL: This. This is my home now. My future. I have sacrificed everything. It must not be in vain. Arrange a meeting between myself and Captain Picard. Tell him Admiral Jarok wants to see him.

    Haden: (on viewer) Captain, we have confirmed that you are holding Admiral Alidar Jarok. He has been identified as the commander of the Massacre at the Norkan Outposts. The council strongly advised that you consider Jarok an unreliable source of information.

    OKay, now I'm going. See ya when I can get back to computer, if there's any episode left... :)

    (later! Still quite a bit more to go, but maybe it'll be done!)

    PICARD: Bring him in.

    ^Finishing PICARD: Ensign, will you wait outside? Have a seat, Admiral Jarok.

    JAROK: Captain, there is no more time.

    PICARD: Admiral, have a seat. You see, I'm just not convinced that you are telling the truth.

    PICARD: You must convince me. If I had irrefutable evidence? But you did not bring irrefutable evidence. You brought no evidence at all. Now, here, you are not the man you claimed to be. Admiral, your credibility is stretched beyond belief. A Romulan defector is almost a contradiction in terms. But Admiral Jarok crossing the lines?

    PICARD: Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. Peace in our galaxy. Except, Admiral, you are not a man of peace. Your military record, what we know of it, is clear.

    JAROK: which is precisely why I chose an alternate identity here.

    PICARD: The massacres in the Norkan outposts, for example.

    JAROK: What you call massacres were called the Norkan Campaign on my world, Captain. One world's butcher is another world's hero. Perhaps I am neither one.

    PICARD: On what basis, Admiral, am I to decide? Your good word? Are you willing to help us overpower the Romulan B-type warbirds we may encounter? Are you prepared to help us detect them through their cloaking shields? You see my problem, Admiral. You ask us for faith in circumstances which are hardly possible to believe, compounded by lies and your refusal to tell us all you know.

    PICARD: You've already betrayed your people, Admiral. You've made your choices, sir. You're a traitor. Now, if the bitter taste of that is unpalatable to you, I am truly sorry. But I will not risk the lives of my crew because you think you can dance on the edge of the Neutral Zone. You've crossed over, Admiral. You make yourself comfortable with that.
