    Data: Your entry codes can be easily reconfigured after we depart. And Captain Picard has authorized me to share with you any information we obtain from the Romulan databanks.

    DATA: Using conventional means, that would be true. However, I suggest we piggy-back our signal on Romulan subspace transmissions.

    DATA: A human metaphor, pardon me. We would use a Romulan signal as a carrier for own one, thus disguising its origin.

    DATA: I believe it would. During the last hour, I have conducted a systematic review of the entire Romulan subspace grid. I have compared my findings with the specifications of your own transmission array. They appear to be compatible.

    SPOCK: There are groups in every populated area. I've personally spoken with members from four provinces. It has become a serious concern for the Romulan leadership.

    Picard: Serious enough for the leaders to suddenly embrace a Vulcan peace initiative? I have some difficulty in accepting that.

    Spock: I sense you have a closed mind, Captain. Closed minds have kept these two worlds apart for centuries. In the Federation, we have learned from experience to view the Romulans with distrust. We can either choose to live with that enmity or seek a way to change it. I choose the latter.
