MADRED: What are the Federation's defense plans for Minos Korva?
PICARD: I don't know.
MADRED: Increase the level slightly to point three one. Let's begin again, shall we? Name?
PICARD: Picard, Jean-Luc.
MADRED: Place of birth?
PICARD: La Barre, France.
Captain's log, stardate 46360.8. The negotiations with the Cardassians have made little progress. I believe a military confrontation may be unavoidable.
JELLICO: Gul Lemec, I assure you that what the Federation wants above all, is the preservation of peace.
LEMEC: Then how do you explain the fact that a Federation team launched an unprovoked assault on Cardassian territory less than fourteen hours ago?
Picard: THERE ARE FOUR LIGHTS!!!
Sorry. Wanted to get that line in before LeadHead and Vanyel start another marathon and finish the thread in 20 minutes.
Jellico:I don't know what you're talking about.
LEMEC: Then let me explain. Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Lieutenant Worf, and Doctor Beverly Crusher landed on Celtris Three, attacked one of our outposts in a brutal assault, and killed over fifty five men, women and children. (liar)
JELLICO: What evidence do you have of that?
LEMEC: We have all the evidence we need. We have Captain Picard.
RIKER: Is he alive?
LEMEC: The Cardassian Union has yet to decided how it will respond to this latest provocation. But rest assured, we will respond.
(the Cardassians leave)
RIKER: Is there any truth in what he's saying?
JELLICO: Captain Picard and the others were sent to investigate reports of a metagenic weapon on Celtris Three. It's possible that they may have been captured. But if they did escape, they'll head for the Lyshan system. The Enterprise is supposed to meet them there in eight hours. Will, I want you to take a shuttlecraft and head for the rendezvous point. The Enterprise will have to remain here until the endgame with Gul Lemec is played out.
RIKER: Aye, sir.
(Picard is brought in blindfolded)
MADRED: Captain Picard.
PICARD: I demand to see a neutral representative as required by the Federation-Cardassian peace treaty.
MADRED: We have already sent a message to Tohvun Three, the nearest neutral planet. They assure us they will dispatch someone immediately. Will you allow me to remove your restraints? (Picard holds up his hands.) I understand that you are a student of archaeology. Did you know that Cardassia boasts some of the most ancient and splendid ruins in the entire galaxy?
