She knows her stuff.
She has your full confidence?
Well, I think she needs supervision. She takes the initiative a little too easy. Sometimes with risks.
Sounds a little like a young lieutenant commander I once recruited as a first officer.
Will, what the hell are you still doing here?
You've been offered the Melbourne.
I've decided not to pursue that offer at this time.
She's a fine ship, Will.
Yes. But she's not the Enterprise. With all due respect, you need me, particularly now.
Indeed? Starfleet needs good captains, particularly now. Reconsider your decision.
Are you telling me to leave Captain?
I'm asking you to look at your career objectively. Will, you're ready to work without a net. You're ready to take command. And, you know, the Enterprise will go along just fine without you.
What am I still doing here? Deanna, I pushed myself hard to get this far. I...I sacrificed a lot. I've always said I wanted my own command and yet...something's holding me back. Is it wrong for me to want to stay?
What do you think?
Maybe I'm just afraid of the big chair?
I don't think so.
The Captain says Shelby reminds him of the way I used to be, and he's right. She comes in here full of drive and ambition, impatient, taking risks. I look at her and wonder what happened to those things in me. I liked those things about me. I've lost something.
You mean you're older, more experienced. A little more seasoned.
