MOTHER PICARD: Dead? But I'm always with you, you know that.
PICARD: Yes, I've felt that. But why now, suddenly?
MAMAN: Here? At the edge of the universe? Or is it the beginning?
PICARD: We believe it's the outer rim. Maman, do you understand these things? Can you tell me where my ship is? What is this place?
RIKER: Captain, you were reported headed for...
PICARD: Just a moment, Number One!
(But the corridor is empty now)
Riker: Can I help you, sir?
PICARD: No. No, let's help all of us. (goes to comm. panel) General quarters. Red Alert.
ARGYLE: What is it Captain? Why are we at General Quarters?
^ Didn't Argyle say that?
PICARD: It was the quickest way to get everyone's attention.
PICARD: This is the Captain. This is not a drill. It seems that in this place, the world of the physical universe and the world of ideas is somehow intermixed. What we think also becomes a reality.We must, therefore, I repeat, must begin controlling our thoughts. We will give you more on this as our understanding increases. The Enterprise will stay at full alert until the crisis is over.
(Turns to Kozinkski)
PICARD: What did you do?
^Not according to my transcript.
RIKER: It wasn't him. It never was. It was his assistant.
Just watched it, Argyle said it.
Picard: What are you talking about?
Riker: Kosinski wasn't the one controlling the warp experiments.
Kozinski: It was me!
RIKER: The equations he punched in were nonsense, just as we thought.
KOSINSKI: I honestly thought it was me. I thought somehow, somehow I was operating on his level.
Argyle: It's also my fault, Captain. I should have realised it wasn't Kosinski.
Picard: How could you? How could any of us?
RIKER: Wesley did.
Picard: If you knew something, why didn't you say so?
