Discussion in 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' started by The Illusive Man, Feb 13, 2014.
PICARD: I get the feeling from your mother that you have something to tell me.
YOUNG BATAI: Yes. I was waiting for the right moment, but that will never come. I'm leaving school.
PICARD: Leaving school? No, you're not.
YOUNG BATAI: I want to concentrate on my music. That's what I care about.
Picard: Last year, all you cared about was mathematics. The year before that, botany. Now
YOUNG BATAI: Through it all, there was my music. I think you know that, Father. This is the life I want.
PICARD: Well, we'll discuss it.
BATAI JR: Thank you, Father.
Eline: Even after all these years you still have the ability to surprise me.
Picard: If music is what he wants, why should I stand in his way? Anyway, who knows how much time he'll have to follow any dream.
ELINE: Are you still planning to talk to the Administrator tomorrow?
Picard: There's a possibility he'll dismiss me from the Council.
ELINE: Unless, of course, you keep quiet.
Picard: No. The evidence is too pronounced. I can't stay silent.
ELINE: (bemused) What a surprise.
ADMINISTRATOR: Kamin, what do you hope to accomplish? Spreading rumours that the planet is doomed. There could be chaos.
PICARD: The facts are here. At least show them to someone who will recognise what they mean.
ADMINISTRATOR: I won't be a party to your making trouble.
PICARD: If you won't take them, I most certainly will.
Administrator: Your observations, your findings, our scientists reached those same conclusions two years ago. Well, what did you expect us to do? Make it public? Can you imagine the effect?
