    TALLERA: Your offer is appreciated but our security forces are more than adequate.

    PICARD: I see. Do you think it's wise for you to go there alone? After all, they were expecting Baran to show up. Don't you think if I were to accompany you, it might seem more plausible.

    TALLERA: Captain, I do understand your human emotional need to be there at the final moment, but this is a Vulcan matter.

    PICARD: Tallera, I've decided on a change of plan. Take one of the artifacts with you. Leave the other here. As soon as we have our payment in full, we'll complete the delivery.

    PICARD: I realise that. But it's safer for all concerned to leave one behind.

    PICARD: They've been waiting a long time for this. They're not going to take any risks. Now, take one of the artefacts and beam down.

    TALLERA: That is all I was waiting for. Go to the navigational computer and check file one three seven slash omega. You'll find a message secretly transmitted to the Enterprise, containing our entire flight plan.

    TALLERA: The message was sent by Galen. He's a Starfleet officer.

    PICARD: Tallera is right. But what she's not telling you is that those artefacts she's holding are part of an incredibly powerful weapon. There's no reward waiting for you down on the surface. As soon as she's got those artefacts, she'll leave you behind to be captured by Starfleet.

    VEKOR: I don't care what it is you want, Tallera. I don't care if that's a weapon for your personal use or if you're really just making a delivery as planned. All I care about is my money. So I propose a compromise. Narik and I will go with you to the surface to guarantee that we receive our payment.

    TALLERA: Agreed. Bring him as well. We'll use him as a hostage if Starfleet arrives. If not, we'll kill him on the surface.

    TALLERA: There. Your reward, as promised.

    VEKOR: No, this is less than half of what we were promised. Where's the rest of it?
