Discussion in 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' started by The Illusive Man, Jul 4, 2012.
PICARD: I have come on an urgent mission from the Federation. I'm looking for Ambassador Spock.
Voice from deeper in the cave: Indeed.
Spock emerges from a nearby Cave passage, not looking any older than he did in Star Trek VI, imagine that!
Spock: You have found him, Captain Picard.
To Be Continued....
Spock: What are you doing on Romulus?
PICARD: That was to have been my question of you, sir.
Spock: It is no concern of Starfleet.
PICARD: On the contrary, it is very much Starfleet's concern. You're in a position to compromise the security of the Federation.
Spock: You may assure your superiors, Captain, that I am here on a personal mission of peace, and I will advise Starfleet when it is appropriate.
PICARD: That is not satisfactory.
SPOCK: You cannot remain here, Captain Picard.
PICARD: And I will not return without a full explanation. Ambassador, with great respect for all that you've achieved on behalf of the Federation, this sort of cowboy diplomacy will not easily be tolerated any more.
SPOCK: Cowboy diplomacy?
PICARD: If you wish to undertake a mission with obvious repercussions to the Federation, then you should discuss it with the Federation. I'm here as their representative. You'll have to discuss it with me.
SPOCK: That is precisely what I had hoped to avoid.
PICARD: I also have the responsibility of being the bearer of unhappy news.
SPOCK: Sarek? Sarek is dead? Walk with me, Picard.
(a sort of living quarters adjoining the cave)
SPOCK: I know of your mind-meld with my father which enabled him to complete his last mission.
PICARD: It was an honor. He is a great man.
Spock: He was a great representative of the Vulcan people and of the Federation.
PICARD: I was with him before coming here. He expressed his pride in you. His love.
Spock: Emotional disarray was a symptom of the illness from which he suffered.
PICARD: No, those feelings came from his heart, Spock. He shared them with me; I know.
SPOCK: Sarek would no more approve my coming here than you do, Picard. For some time now, I've been aware of a growing movement here of people who seek to learn the ideals of the Vulcan philosophy. They've been declared enemies of the state. But there are a few in the Romulan hierarchy like Pardek, who are sympathetic. He asked me to come now, because he believes it may be time to take the first step toward reunification.
