Picard: "Captain's log, stardate 41463.9. While mapping the Pleiades cluster we have been asked by the Federation to visit a group terraforming Velara III. Communications have been erratic, and there is some concern about their welfare."
Data: "Geordi, servos off."
Benson: "They are off."
LaForge: "Data what's happening?"
Data: "Too much to explain."
LaForge: "LaForge to Enterprise... we have a problem!"
Picard: "Be specific."
LaForge: "Data's in the hydraulics room alone, and we're hearing
laser blasts."
Picard: "Get him out of there!"
Benson: "It's not working again."
LaForge: "We've got to get this door open. Data! We can't get in! Data! Data! Data!"
(The door opens on a room full of smoke)
Picard: "Away team, now. What is happening? (over comm:) I'm going to beam him out of there."
Data: "Bridge, this is Lieutenant Commander Data. No need to beam me up Sir, the situation is under control."
Riker: "First Officer's log, stardate 41464.3. What began as a routine visit to a terraforming site has turned into something far more serious. Arthur Malencon, the hydraulic engineer, has been critically injured by a laser drill which appears to have malfunctioned."
LaForge: "Woa...what is it? Nothing but basic elements, in-organic. No carbon, sandy texture...those flashes are almost...musical. I see colour variations and rhythms and complex harmonies."
Picard: "Captain's log, supplemental. On my order, Data's startling discovery of a possible life-form has been beamed aboard so that its true nature might be uncovered. But unlike life on Earth and else where it appears to be completely in-organic."
Picard: "Captain's log, supplemental. The life-form which has significantly increased in size is again attempting to communicate with us."
Picard: "Captain's Log, supplemental. The inorganic lifeform from Velara III has apparently taken over our medical lab."
Worf: "I cannot understand the patterns."
LaForge: "Hmm...neither can I."
Data: "Please show me spectral analysis magnification 12k."
Computer: "Silicon... Germanium..."
Data: "Transistor material."
Computer: "Gallium arsenide."
LaForge: "Emits light when charged."
Computer: "Cadmium selenide sulfide."
Data: "Emits charge when lit."
Computer: "Water, impurities, sodium salts."
Worf: "Conductor. But is it alive?!"
Computer: "Probability positive."
Worf: "I wasn't asking you!"
Translator Voice: "Ugly...Ugly giant bags of mostly water."
Picard: "Bags of mostly water?"
Data: "An accurate description of humans, Sir. You are over 90% water surrounded by a flexible container."
Picard: "Captain's log, supplemental. We have regained visual contact with the lab but our attempts to restore communication with this micro-brain as we have come to call it have been unsuccessful. One thing that is certain however, this life-form has declared war on us."
Picard: "Captain' log, stardate 41464.8. I have declared an indefinite quarantine for Velara III and we are now returning to Starbase with the three surviving terraformers. Perhaps the lessons we have learned from this near-tragedy will prevent it from happening elsewhere."
