    Spock: No, it is not. But it is true that I will miss the arguments. They were, finally, all we had.

    Spock: I always had a different vision than my father. The ability to see beyond pure logic. He considered it weak, but I have discovered it to be a source of extraordinary strength. Sarek would have seen this mission of reunification as a fool's errand. Somehow I think it is not. Logic cannot explain why, I only know that I must pursue this.

    SPOCK: If the Romulans do have an ulterior motive, it is in the interests of all concerned that we determine what it is. So I will play the role that they would have me play.

    DATA: Negative, Captain. The Romulan Information net employs a progressive encryption lock. I have been unable to penetrate their security measures.

    SPOCK: Remarkably analytical and dispassionate, for a human. I understand why my father chose to mind-meld with him. There's almost a Vulcan quality to the man.

    Data: Interesting. I have not considered that. And Captain Picard has been a role model in my quest to be more human.

    SPOCK: Fascinating. You have an efficient intellect, superior physical skills and no emotional impediments. There are Vulcans who aspire all their lives to achieve what you've been given by design.
