PICARD: You are indeed a leader.
NURIA: You have shown me such generosity. I wish my people could share in it. Six Mintakans died in a flood last winter. Four of them children. Would you bring them back to life?
PICARD: That is not in my power.
NURIA: Why? You restored Liko's life. Did the six who died offend you in some way? Did I offended you? Should I have ordered the death of Troi? Please, you must tell me if there's anything I can do to change your mind.
Picard: I've failed to get through to you, haven't I? Despite all my efforts.
OJI: Nuria can't be found. No one knows where she's gone.
Liko: Hali, any sign of Palmer or Riker?
HALI: They have escaped us. We searched everywhere.
Oji: What do we do now, Father?
LIKO: We must do as the Picard wishes. Punish those responsible.
FENTO: Nuria would not allow us to....
LIKO: Nuria isn't here! We can't wait.
(Liko gestures to Hali for his bow)
CRUSHER: Crusher to Picard. I think we're going to lose Warren.
PICARD [OC]: On my way.
BARRON: I'm here, Mary.
(Picard and Nuria enter)
Crusher: Prepare two cc's of norep.
(but Mary Warren gives up the struggle to breathe)
Crusher: I'm sorry.
(Crusher and Barron leave, and Nuria approaches the death bed)
NURIA: Picard, you could not save her?
NURIA: You do have limits. You are not masters of life and death.
Picard: No, we are not. We can cure many diseases and we can repair injuries, we can even extend life. But for all our knowledge, all our advances, we are just as mortal as you are. We're just as powerless to prevent the inevitable.
