PICARD: SHUT UP! WESLEY!
No, that's not it. Just joking.
PICARD: Our reality? And in order to satisfy this curiosity, you have brought my ship and my crew into great risk.
TRAVELER: I have made some mistakes.
PICARD: Some mistakes? What mistakes could possibly explain these incredible explosions of velocity?
TRAVELER: I don't know if I can put it in terms you'll understand.
PICARD: I believe there may be a warp speed that can get us beyond Galaxy M33, but there is no velocity of any magnitude that can possibly bring us wherever this is. Is it true what our navigation sensors are telling us? Are we millions of light years away from where we were?
PICARD: Well, what got us here?
TRAVELER: You do understand don't you that thought is the basis of all reality? The "energy" of thought, to put it in your terms, is very powerful.
KOSINSKI: That's not an explanation.
TRAVELER: I have the ability to act like a lens which focuses thought.
Kosinski: That's just so much nonsense. You're asking us to believe in magic.
TRAVELER: "Well... [stiff laugh] Yes, I guess this would seem like magic to you."
Picard: No. No, it actually makes sense to me. Only the power of thought could explain what has been happening. Especially out here.
Traveler: Thought is the essence of where you are now. You do understand the danger, don't you?
Picard: Chaos. What we think is what happens.
Traveler: It pains me I was so careless, Captain. My intent was only to observe, not to cause this. You should not be here until your far, far distant future. Certainly not until you have learned control.
Riker: You are from a different time, aren't you?
