    Picard: Reunification? After so many centuries? After so many fundamental differences have evolved between your peoples?

    Spock: It would seem unlikely to succeed. But I cannot ignore the potential rewards that a union between our two worlds would bring.

    Spock: There is a new ProConsul in the Romulan Senate. He is young and idealistic. He has promised many reforms. Pardek believes that he may be receptive to discussing reunification.

    PICARD: Why would you not bring something so important to the attention of your own people or the Federation?

    Spock: A personal decision, Captain. Perhaps you are aware of the small role I played in the overture to peace with the Klingons.

    Spock: Not entirely. It was I who comitted Captain Kirk to that Peace Mission and I who had to bear the consequences to him and to his crew. Quite simply, I am unwilling to risk anyone's life but my own on this occasion. So, I ask, that you respect my wishes and leave.

    PICARD: Ambassador, your logic escapes me. If I didn't know better, I would say that your judgment is influenced by your emotions.

    Spock gives the trademark eyebrow raise.

    Spock: You speak as if my father would, if he were here, Picard.

    SPOCK: I was involved with cowboy diplomacy, as you describe it, long before you were born.

    Spock: In your own way, you are as stubborn as another Captain of the Enterprise I once knew.

    Later, on the Klingon Bridge, Captain K'Vada enters, with Data still dressed as a Romulan.

    K'Vada: We have more important things to attend to than acting as your nursemaids.

    DATA: Captain Picard regrets detaining you, but it will be necessary for a while longer. In addition, I require access to your ship's computer.
