Paris: (reading from "Women Warriors at the River of Blood") "Rorg turned his fierce eye upon her and B'Nea felt her heart begin to quicken even as her hand went to her dagger. She had intended to plunge it into his throat, but something about him made her hesitate..." B'Elanna, is this a Klingon romance novel?
B'Elanna: Klingons do have what you might call a romantic side. It's a bit more vigorous than most.
Paris: I think I'll read it. Maybe it'll give me some ideas about how to make your heart quicken.
B'Elanna: Its not a technical manual, Tom.
Paris: Well that depends on what you mean by "technical."
B'Elanna: To an engineer, that means specialising in particular systems.
Paris: I think that definition works.
B'Elanna: Well I can't promise I won't put a dagger in your throat.
