Discussion in 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' started by The Illusive Man, Jul 4, 2012.
Picard: I wish you well.
VARIOUS: Thank you. Thank you Captain.
(Picard, Data and Spock go into an adjoining cave)
Picard, Spock and Data move deeper into the caves.
Spock: Captain, I will not be coming with you.
Spock: The reason for my coming here has never been more clear. The union of the Vulcan and the Romulan people will not be achieved by politics or by diplomacy, but it will be achieved. The answer has been here before us, all along. An inexorable evolution toward a Vulcan society has already begun. Like the first Vulcans, these people are struggling to a new enlightenment. It may take decades or even centuries for them to reach it. But they will reach it, and I must help.
PICARD: I have learned it is useless to argue with you once your mind is set.
Spock: Not at all, Captain. I have found our arguments quite useful. Almost as useful as those I had with my father.
PICARD: Would it surprise you to learn that he found them equally valuable?
Spock: Ironically, you may know Sarek better than his own son does. My father and I, never chose to meld.
PICARD: I offer you the chance to touch what he shared with me.
(and we close on Spock initiating a mind-meld with Picard)
Yay! We're done!
Glad to make it to the end with ya Alienesse! Haven't been here for the endings much recently.
Yeah, me neither! That's why I'm particularly happy we could take this one to its conclusion together.
Agreed! Have a good night!
Thanks! Day here for now. You have a good night as well!

Wow! Didn't expect that to happen anytime soon!

Thanks for the update, BlueStuff! It's really interesting to see how each episode did in the line-by-line. What do you think this says about the episodes, though? I guess it's reasonable to assume that the more popular an episode is the faster it goes?
