PICARD: How soon will you be ready?
LAFORGE: We're ready now, Captain. The subspace field is established.
COMMANDER "KILLY-JOY" RIKER: I'd be more comfortable if you'd monitor our progress from the bridge, Captain.
PICARD: I have reason to believe that my presence on this mission is imperative.
PICARD: Yes. Mister Worf, you will report back to the Bridge.
WORF: Sir, as Chief of Security my place is at your side.
PICARD: The security of the Enterprise is of paramount importance, Mister Worf.
WORF: Yes, sir. Worf to Enterprise.
CREWMAN on COMM: Go ahead.
WORF: Beam me up.
(Worf is beamed away)
PICARD: Proceed Mr. LaForge.
LAFORGE: I've modified this tricorder to interface with the subspace generator. It should allow me to control the phase discrimination, assuming this is going to work at all. I need everyone within the field. Adjusting synchronic distortion. .001. .002. (images of creatures start to appear) .003. .004.
[Picard and the rest of the away team are in the same cavern only now tinted a hue of blue. Alien forms sit around the cavern seemingly not aware of the away team. From a column in the middle of the room glowing globes of light fly out of it and enter the foreheads of the aliens.]
PICARD: If we can see them, why they can't see us?
LAFORGE: The phase displacement might not bring us far enough into their perceptual range.
[Crusher exams the central column of swirling energy]
CRUSHER: These strands appear to be biomagnetic. Variable flux. Possibly organic in origin.
PICARD: A life form.
TROI: No. There is no life here. What I have sensed is more like an imprint. An echo of the last moment of life. Human life. They all died in terror
[The time door opens. Two figures walk from it carrying the snake/cane and a case. They hook the case to column, the energy balls swirl from it into the column.]
RIKER: My God. They're delivering more of them for the others to ingest.
