    BATAI: We need help if we're to increase the water supply. We think there are ways to reclaim some of our water.

    Administrator: Batai, you're being a bit of an alarmist. True, we are in a drought, but water rationing has produced a sizeable savings.

    PICARD: If the weather pattern doesn't change, rationing will not be enough. We'll run out of water.

    PICARD: I suggest that we build atmospheric condensers which could extract water from the air.

    ADMINISTRATOR: I don't mean to quash your very creative ideas but building atmospheric condensers would be a monumental undertaking. We could not hope to sustain such a project.

    PICARD: Each community would be responsible for its own. Condensers could make the difference between watering our crops or watching them die.

    ADMINISTRATOR: Well, I'll be glad to pass along your idea. You'll see that this kind of participatory government works for everyone. Be well, Batai. I shall see you next month. Good to meet you, Kamin.

    (Picard obviously doesn't think much of the meeting)

    PICARD: But there'll be no atmospheric condensers.

    Picard: Come and have supper tonight, my friend. I'll make some vegetable stew. Let's talk about building our own condenser.

    BATAI: Kamin. Hearing you talk to the Administrator, I realized that for the first time in years, you were speaking as though you were truly a member of the community. It was good to hear that again.

    Frere Jacques drifts through the evening air.

    BATAI: You've been brooding behind that flute all evening.
