Worf: "Captain, communication from Starfleet. They have reported a disturbance in the neutral zone."
Picard: "Of what nature?"
Worf: "Battle. Quadrant 9, co-ordinates 070 mark 3. There is no information who is involved. They are asking if we can investigate."
Picard: "Answer affirmative. Mister LaForge lay in the course."
Picard: "Captain's log, stardate 41503.7. We have entered the neutral zone where a Talarian freighter has been severely damaged in a battle. I have sent an away team to investigate."
Picard: "What is it? What do you see?"
Riker: "Klingons."
Picard: "Klingons?!"
LaForge: "Commander! We are out of time, this ship is blowing!"
Riker: "Transporter room, have you got a lock on us?"
Yar: "Too much interference. You have to get further away from the Engineering section."
Worf: "Sir, the engineering section is critical. Destruction of the Batris is imminent."
Picard: "They're out of options. Do it now!"
Korris: "We have heard this ship can separate in time of battle."
Worf: "Yes, when relieved of its bulk the Enterprise becomes an exceptional weapon."
Yar: "I thought for a minute we had a problem."
Worf: "Oh?!"
Yar: "Yes! It looked like Korris was going to hold that little girl as a hostage."
Worf: "That is not our way. Cowards take hostages, Klingons do not."
Yar: "Captain, he has a phaser aimed directly at the dilithium crystal chamber. At that range one blast and..."
Picard: "...I understand Lieutenant."
Picard: "What's the situation?"
Yar: "He's on the second level armed with a phaser, we do not have a clear field of fire."
Picard: "How do you suggest we proceed?"
Yar: "Wait him out."
Worf: "Captain, let me talk to him."
Yar: "I do not think that's a good idea, Worf. Right now he's running on adrenalin. Let it cool. There's no where he can go."
Worf: "He will wait only as long as he believes it is to his advantage. The moment it is not, he will fire his phaser into the dilithium crystal chamber."
Yar: "That would destroy the Enterprise and him along with it."
Worf: "Yes, he knows."
Korris: "Brother, I knew you would come. Now I...we have a chance. I could not do it alone, but I would rather die here, than let the traitors of Kling pick the meat from my bones. With you it will work."
Worf: "What will work?
Korris: "I will demand Captain Picard give us access to the Battle Bridge. We will separate from the rest of the ship, and together, we
will light up the galaxy. Imagine the fear that will roll before us."
Worf: "Captain Picard will not comply."
Korris: "He can not, dare not refuse us. In order to save themselves, they will give us what we demand. Then, brother, we are free."
Worf: "Put down the phaser."
Korris: "Wait. I do not believe this."
Worf: "Believe it."
Korris: "I have tasted your heart. You have been with them, but you are still of us. Do not deny the challenge of your destiny. Get off your knees and soar. Open your eyes and let the dream take flight."
Worf: "My brother, it is you who does not see. You look for battles in the wrong place. The test of the warrior is not without, it is
within. Here, here we meet the challenge. It is the weaknesses in here a warrior must overcome."
Korris: "No."
Worf: "You have talked of glory and of conquest and legends we will write."
Korris: "Yes, the birthright of every Klingon."
Worf: "Yet in all you say, where are the words duty, honour, loyalty. Without which a warrior is nothing."
Korris: "What are you saying? Living among these humans has sucked the Klingon heart out of you."
Worf: "Put down the phaser."
Korris: "You are a sham! My words were dust upon the ground. Your blood has no fire. You are weak like them. I don't care what you look like you are no Klingon."
Worf: "Perhaps not!"
(And he shoots Korris, who falls through a glass screen to the floor below)
