    Picard: If you believe I am all-powerful, then you cannot hurt me. If, however, I am telling the truth and I am mortal, you will kill me. But if the only proof you will believe is my death, then shoot.

    Oji: Father, no!
    (Oji jolts Liko's arm enough to deflect the arrow into Picard's shoulder. Nuria holds up her blood-stained hand to Liko and he bursts into tears)

    Captain's log, supplemental. Dr. Crusher has repaired my injury with her usual skill. Mr. LaForge will supervise the dismantling of the observation post after I make one last visit to Mintaka Three.

    PICARD: Now, Mr. LaForge.
