La Forge: Negative, Commander.
RIKER: What's the explanation?
La Forge: I don't have one yet. La Forge to Enterprise.
DATA [OC]: Go ahead.
La Forge: Data, run a spectral field correlation for me. Let's find out if these triolic readings are in any way related
LAFORGE [OC]: To the temporal distortions.

Troi: My God, Will. They're human.

Data [OC]: A positive displacement of point zero zero four percent.
