Wesley: Is Mister Kosinski like he sounds? A joke?
Traveler: No, that's too cruel. He has sensed some small part of it.
Wesley: That space and time and thought aren't the separate things they appear to be? I just thought the formula you were using said something like that.
Traveler: Boy, don't ever say that again! And especially not at your age in a world that's not ready for such... such dangerous nonsense.
Kozinski: I've always suspected this rate of speed was possible, of course, but at this level? No, never. We're going to need new definitions. New parameters.
Argyle: Perhaps you can call it the "Koziniski scale"?
KOSINSKI: Why not? Yes, of course. Since I'm the one who has made the so-called warp barrier meaningless. And, Captain, this must be a special thrill for you.
Kosinski: As an explorer. In three centuries of space flight, we've charted just eleven percent of our galaxy. And then we accomplish this.
PICARD: Yes, but isn't the real point, can you do it again? Can you get us home?
Kosinski: Of course I can. I'll just do what I did before. Coming, Riker?
PICARD: Commander Riker will join you in a moment.
PICARD: Comment is invited. Counsellor?
TROI: He's convinced he's right. I have no doubt of that.
WORF: Captain, can you allow a man who has made one mistake back into a position where he may make another?
LAFORGE: Captain, what are our options really? I mean, if this guy can't get us back, who will?
DATA: Captain, we are here. Why not avail ourselves of this opportunity for study? There is a giant protostar here in the process of forming. No vessel has been out this far.
PICARD: Spoken like a true Starfleet graduate. It is tempting, eh, Number One?
RIKER: Aye, sir, it is. But as they say, sir, you're the Captain.
RIKER: Aye, sir.
KOSINSKI: Do you realize how many great advancements of mankind have been tied to speed? This is a moment in history. Right here, right now. And your names will be forever linked with mine.
