    Paris: Well, thanks, Tuvok, but I don't need any probability studies. I'm just sort of making it up as I go along.

    Tuvok: Indeed. I'd be curious to know what you've made up thus far.

    PARIS: Well, I was thinking, Paris and Janeway retake the ship and then she decides to execute all the conspirators.

    TUVOK: That is an entirely implausible plot development. Captain Janeway would never behave in such an inhumane manner.

    PARIS: This isn't real life, Tuvok. It's fiction. Don't get so caught up in logic.

    TUVOK: Logic is an integral part of narrative structure. According to The Dictates of Poetics by T'hain of Vulcan, a character's actions must flow inexorably from his or her established traits.

    Paris: Well, I don't know anything about T'hain, but I do know what makes an interesting story, and that's unexpected plot twists.

    TUVOK: If you think I will allow you to turn this program into a parody, you are sorely mistaken.

    TUVOK: I would hardly call Mister Paris's ideas, artistic.

    Paris: Apparently, my instincts don't comply with the Vulcan Dictates if Poetics.

    TORRES: Well, I've got a couple of suggestions that might help. Now, up until now the story's been nothing but action, which is fine. But what it needs is a little heart, a little emotion.

    Torres: Listen, I don't care which one of you is writing this thing. All I'm saying is that there is room in every good story for a little bit of passion.

    PARIS: You know, maybe you're on to something. I could add a steamy love scene between the Starfleet conn officer and the Maquis engineer.
