Discussion in 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' started by Santa Garrus, Feb 27, 2013.
LAL: I believe it is.
PICARD: You see, Lal, the Admiral is concerned that you need more guidance than your father can provide here on the Enterprise.
HAFTEL: Yes. Don't misunderstand me, I have great respect for your father.
LAL: You do not speak with respect.
HAFTEL: She seems very adversarial.
LAL: I'm merely stating a fact, Admiral.
HAFTEL: I don't think your father has taught you selective judgment in the verbalisation of your own thoughts. That is a skill we will help you develop.
LAL: My father is already helping me, sir.
HAFTEL: The question is, has he helped you enough?
LAL: Are you asking me, sir?
HAFTEL: No, I didn't mean to ask any...
PICARD: Why don't we, Admiral? In all these discussions, no one has ever mentioned her wishes. She's a free, sentient being. What are your wishes, Lal?
LAL: I wish to remain here, Captain Picard.
PICARD: Thank you, Lal. You're excused.
TROI: Come in.
(Lal enters, obviously upset)
TROI: Hello, Lal. How are you?
LAL: Troi. Admiral. Admiral. An Admiral from Starfleet has come to take me away, Troi. I am scared.
TROI: You are scared, aren't you?
Lal: I feel it. How is this possible?
Troi: I don't know.
Lal: This is what it means to feel. This is what it means to feel.
