Jean-Luc Picard
Shinzon


Shinzon: The mighty Federation will fall before us, as I promised you. The time we have dreamed of is at hand.


Jean-Luc Picard: Duty. A starship captain's life is filled with solemn duty. I have commanded men in battle. I have negotiated peace treaties between implacable enemies. I have represented the Federation in First Contact with twenty-seven alien species. But none of this compares with my solemn duty today... as best man. Now, I know on an occasion such as this, it is expected that I be gracious and fulsome in my praise on the wonders of this blessed union. But have the two of you considered what you are doing to me?! Of course, you're happy, but what about my needs? This is all a damned inconvenience. I mean, while you are happily settling in on the Titan, I will be training my new First Officer. You all know him. He's a tyrannical martinet who will never, ever allow me to go on away missions.
Data: That is the regulation, sir. Starfleet Code Section 12, Paragraph Four...
Jean-Luc Picard: Mr. Data?
Data: Sir?
Jean-Luc Picard: Shut up.
Data: Yes, sir.
Jean-Luc Picard: 15 years I've been waiting to say that.

[speaking to Picard via a holographic transmission.] I'll show you my true nature. Our nature. And as Earth dies - remember I will always forever be Shinzon of Remus. And my voice shall echo through time long after yours has faded to a dim memory.

Worf: I recommend extreme caution.

Shinzon: My life is meaningless as long as you're still alive. What am I while you exist? A shadow? An echo?
Jean-Luc Picard: If your issues are about me, then deal with me. This has nothing to do with my ship-- nothing to do with the Federation.
Shinzon: Oh, but it does. We will no longer bow before anyone as slaves; not the Romulans, and not your mighty Federation. We are a race bred for war and conquest.

If there is one ideal that the Federation holds most dear it is that all men... all races can be united. What better example than a Starfleet captain standing in the Romulan Senate. Nothing would make me more proud than to take your hand in friendship... in time... when that trust has been earned.

[seeing the Scimitar for the first time. With awe] She's a predator...

Jean-Luc Picard: Helmsman, lay in a new course. Take us to Romulus, warp eight.
Officer Branson: Aye aye, sir. Course plotted and laid in.
William Riker: Romulus?
Jean-Luc Picard: I'm afraid the Opal Sea will have to wait, Number One. Engage.

William Riker: Captain, I don't have to remind you--
Jean-Luc Picard: I appreciate you concern, Number One. But, I have been itching to try the Argo.
William Riker: I'll bet.
Jean-Luc Picard: Captain's prerogative. There's no foreseeable danger. And your wife would never have forgiven me if anything would have happened to you. You have the bridge... Mister Troi!
[The bridge crew laughs heartily at Riker's momentary demotion to house husband.]

Shinzon: You are me. The same noble Picard blood runs through our veins. Have you lived my life, you'd be doing exactly as I am. So look in the mirror. See yourself. Consider that, Captain. I can think of no greater torment for you.
Jean-Luc Picard: Shinzon. I'm a mirror for you as well.
Shinzon: Not for long, Captain. I'm afraid you won't survive to witness the victory of the echo over the voice.

[near a replicator] Tea, Earl Grey, hot.

Kathryn Janeway: The Son'a, the Borg, the Romulans-- you seem to get all the easy assignments.
Jean-Luc Picard: Just lucky, Admiral.
Kathryn Janeway: Let's hope that luck holds. Janeway out.

Senator: Senators, consider the opportunities for the Empire. At last, the destinies of the planets Romulus and Remus will be united. Shinzon of Remus is offering us a chance to make ourselves stronger than ever before. It would be madness to reject it. I beg you not to let prejudice or politics interfere with this alliance. By joining Shinzon's forces with ours, not even the mighty Federation will be able to stand in our way.
Praetor Hiren: That's enough!
[first lines]

[last word] Good-bye.

[last words] I'm glad we're together now. Our destiny's complete.
