RIKER: I guess you're right. It's not worth playing this game.
SETAL: What a fool I've been. To come looking for courage in a lair of cowards
COMPUTER: Captain Picard, priority message from security officer, Klingon vessel Bortas.
PICARD: Lieutenant Worf, will you handle this at security station, deck nine.
WORF: Aye, sir.
Data: Sensors are configured for planetary probe, Sir. Ready for launch.
Data: Probe on course. Sensors are functioning.
Picard: Coordinate your analysis with Mr. La Forge. I want this report with dispatch.
LAFORGE: I don't know, Data. My gut tells me we ought to be listening to what this guy's trying to tell us.
(Hey, Blue! Another day, another LBL round!)
DATA: Your gut?
(indeed! Though I can't stay for long this time!)
LAFORGE: It's just a feeling, you know? An instinct. Intuition.
DATA: But those qualities would interfere with rational judgment, would they not?
LAFORGE: You're right. Sometimes they do.
DATA: Then why not rely strictly on the facts?
LAFORGE: Because you just can't rely on the plain and simple facts. Sometimes they lie.
DATA: They can lead to wrong conclusions, but they cannot lie.
LAFORGE: What do you think? Is he a defector or not?
DATA: The facts to date would lead to an objective conclusion that he is not.
LAFORGE: Somehow I think we're going to catch the Romulans with their pants down on Nelvana Three, just like he says.
