Discussion in 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' started by The Illusive Man, Feb 15, 2013.
Q: Have you forgotten that we have an agreement?
Picard: An agreement which you are at this moment breaking by taking over our vessel, interfering with my decisions. Either leave or finish us!
Q: Temper, temper, mon Capitaine. I'm merely trying to assist a pitiful species. But perhaps I will leave if Commander Riker provides me with some amusement.
PICARD: Do nothing that he asks.
Q (Judge): But I ask so little, and it's so necessary if you're to solve all this. Beam over there with your what do you call it? Your away team.
Picard: I'll risk none of my crew on that unknown.
Q: You should already know what you'll find there. Or perhaps it's too adult a puzzle for you.
RIKER: With all respect, Captain, I want to beam over there.
Q: You show promise, my good fellow.
Riker: Have you understood any part of hat he's tried to tell you? Humanity is no longer a savage race.
Q: But you must still prove that.
PICARD: At least you impressed him, Number One. That's hopeful.
RIKER: Thank you, Captain. Captain, if he's not open to evidence in our favour, where will you go from there?
Picard: I'll attend to my duty.
RIKER: To the bitter end?
Picard: I see nothing so bitter about that.
Picard enters the turbolift.
CRUSHER: Can I help you, Captain?
Picard: I didn't want you thinking me harsh, cold blooded.
Beverly: Why, oh why would I ever think that?
Picard: I didn't welcome you aboard personally, professionally. I made you come to me on the Bridge. I yelled at your son. Who, as you pointed out, was quite correct. He does seem to have a very good grasp of starship operations.
