    ALEXANA: The event that really opened my eyes took place only a few days after my arrival. A terrorist bomb destroyed a shuttlebus. 60 schoolchildren. There were no survivors. The Ansata claimed that it was a mistake, that their intended target was a police transport. As if that made everything all right. That day I vowed that I would put an end to terrorism in this city. And I will.

    CRUSHER: Thank you. You're very helpful. You could learn to do this when you grow up. If you grow up.
    (She goes over to Finn)
    CRUSHER: They're dying. I'm seeing a complicated set of conditions. Their DNA is warped somehow, and it's distorting their entire cellular chemistry.

    FINN: It's the inverter. It's given our cause a new life, but it asks for our lives in return.
