Admiral Matthew Dougherty: Order them to surrender, and I promise, you won't be court-martialed.
Jean-Luc Picard: If a court-martial is the only way to let the people of the Federation know what is happening here, I welcome it.


Federation support. Federation procedures. Federation rules. Look in the mirror, Admiral. The Federation is old. In the past 24 months, they've been challenged by every major power in the quadrant: the Borg, the Cardassians, the Dominion. They all smell the scent of death on the Federation. That's why you've embraced our offer. Because it will give your dear Federation new life. Well, how badly do you want it, admiral? Because there are hard choices to be made now. If the Enterprise gets the news to the Federation about their brave captain's valiant struggle on behalf of the defenseless Ba'ku, your Federation's politicians will waiver. Your Federation opinion polls will open a public debate. Your Federation allies will want their say. You-- need I go on?

Captain, the Son'a crew want to negotiate a cease-fire. It may have something to do with the fact that we have 3 minutes of air left.

William Riker: Counselor, do you think it's possible for two people to go back in time, fix a mistake they've made?
Deanna Troi: On this ship, anything's possible. [Riker kisses her, and she pushes him away] Yuck!
William Riker: "Yuck"?
Deanna Troi: I never kissed you with a beard before.
William Riker: I kissed you, and you say "yuck"?

Definitely feeling aggressive tendencies, sir!

We're through running from these bastards.

[The Enterprise E is on a collision course with Ru'afo's ship.]
Son'a officer: He wouldn't.
Worf: Yes, he would.

Can anyone remember when we used to be explorers?

Admiral Dougherty will not be joining us for dinner. Deploy the collector.

I'm going to miss these little flesh-stretching sessions of ours, my dear.
