Yar: Captain, so far we have obeyed every order. No matter how far fetched it might have seemed. But, if we are to risk the safety of the ship and crew, I think we have to ask you for an explanation.
Past Picard: I understand your concern, Lieutenant. I know if I were in your position I would be doing the same thing--looking for answers. But, you're not going to find any because I don't have any to give you. I know it is difficult for you to understand, but we have to take the ship into the very center of the phenomenon and create a static warp shell. Now, this will put the ship at risk. Quite frankly, we may not survive. But, I want you to believe that I am doing this for a greater purpose and that what is at stake here is more than any of you can possibly imagine. I know you have your doubts about me... about each other... about the ship. All I can say is that, although we have only been together for a short time, I know that you are the finest crew in the fleet and I would trust each of you with my life. So, I am asking you for a leap of faith... and to trust me.
