Riker: Ensign, set a course to Galorndon Core. Take us to warp 8.
Ensign: Aye, sir.
Data: Captain, the Romulan subspace logs identify a transmission from the Romulan surface to a Barolian ship near Galorndon Core 12 hours ago.
K'Vada: Galorndon Core is along the Barolian trade route. They trade a great deal with the Romulans. It's probably just routine.
DATA: This would not appear to be routine. I was able to trace the source of the transmission. It incorporates the code prefix of Romulan intelligence.
Picard: Can you access it?
DATA: It is a short sequence of numbers. 1-4-0-0.
Picard: Nothing more?
DATA: No, sir.
On Romulus, Spock walks down a street. D'Tan runs up to him.
D'Tan: Spock! I've been looking for you.
SPOCK: I have been meeting with the Proconsul.
D'Tan: Does he still speak of reunification?
SPOCK: He speaks of nothing else.
They step to a corner, D'Tan takes out some triangular blocks and hands them to Spock.
D'Tan: Have you ever seen these?
SPOCK: The syllabic nucleus of the Vulcan language.
D'Tan: They were my toys when I was small.
SPOCK: Your parents wanted you to learn to understand Vulcan?
D'Tan: Yes, as did their parents before them, to prepare us for the day when we would reunite with our Vulcan cousins.
ROMULAN 1: Your friends from the Federation have returned. They need to see you immediately. I've told Pardek. He'll meet you at the cave.
Later, Spock and Pardek have met up with Picard and Data, who are both armed and in uniform.
Picard: ...The only communication that was sent were the numbers 1,4,0,0.
