Spock: "For some time now, I've been aware of a growing movement here of people
who seek to learn the ideals of the Vulcan philosophy. They've been declared
enemies of the state, but there are a few in the Romulan hierarchy like
Pardek, who are sympathetic. *He* asked me to come now, because he believes
it may be time to take the first step toward reunification."
Picard: "'Reunification'? After so many centuries? After so many fundamental
differences that've evolved between your peoples?"
Spock: "It would seem unlikely to succeed, but I cannot ignore the potential
rewards that a union between our two worlds would bring."
