    CLEMENS: His accomplices. They've come from the future. My God, it's an invasion.

    [Clemens gets a bit hysterical as he begins realizing this and hails a hansom cab.]

    [The Cavern]

    RIKER: [scanning with tricorder] The triolic levels are as high as they were on Devidia Two. There's no indication of a control mechanism.

    LAFORGE: I'm not so sure. My visor is picking up crystalline fractures. These cavern walls have undergone some kind of selective molecular polarisation. In fact, if I'm right this whole cavern has been configured to focus the space-time distortion. Just like a lens. Captain, we think we might be on to something. The cavern itself seems to be acting as a focusing mechanism. I'm willing to bet it's the same at their habitat back on Devidia Two.
