Picard: You hunt us. You kill us. We cannot allow that.
ALIEN: We need your energy.
Picard: Perhaps we can find a substitute.
ALIEN: No. There is none. We must continue.
Picard: We know how you move back and forth through time. My crew have returned to the twenty fourth century to destroy your transport site on Devidia Two.
ALIEN: Destroy it? Your weapons will only amplify the time distortion. You will annihilate your own world.
[The alien flickers out of existence.]
Riker: I'm going back for Captain Picard. Mister Worf, assemble an Away team to accompany me to the surface. Doctor, I need to know anything you can tell me about that ophidian.
CRUSHER: I've just started running some tests. If I can have a few hours....
Riker: I can't give the aliens any more time.
Crusher: Will, I haven't been able to determine if our phaser energy can generate a stable field. The risk would be-
RIKER: I'll take that risk.
WORF: Sir, permission to speak frankly?
RIKER: Go ahead.
Worf: Our priority is to stop the aliens from any more incursions to Earth. Any delay is unacceptable.
Riker: If I can save Captain Picard, I consider that very acceptable.
WORF: The Captain would not. I recommend we target photon torpedoes on the alien habitat and destroy it. Immediately.
TROI: He's right, Will.
RIKER: Power up the photons, Mr. Worf. Alert me when they're ready.
LAFORGE: Computer, initialise the reload circuits.
COMPUTER: Reload circuits are initializing.
