Did You Know?photo galleryquotes
from "Star Trek: The Next Generation" (1987)
Langor: We have thought about this a great deal.
Sobi: Both of us feel deeply about what is happening on Ornara. And although it is going to cause hardship to us, we have decided to give them the Felicium.
Langor: We don't want to be responsible for they're suffering.
Sobi: They can pay whenever they are able.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: [to Beverly] There goes the other shoe. They know.
Doctor Beverly Crusher: What do they know?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: They know the Ornarans don't have the plague. They know that Felicium is no longer a medicine. So, of course they are willing to give this shipment. Because they don't want to take the chance that the Ornarans will lose their addiction. They don't want to lose their only customers.
Doctor Beverly Crusher: How could they have known all that... unless the plague had once infected their planet as well?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: They were infected. They used the Felicium to cure themselves, but somehow they're ancestors realised it was a narcotic.
Doctor Beverly Crusher: [getting angry] They broke the cycle of addiction and never told the Ornarans. They let them continue to believe that without the Felicium they would die.
