Picard is found on Romulus by senator Pardek, who brings him to ambassador Spock, who explains his secret 'cowboy diplomacy' is about the off chance of a Vulcan-Romulan reunification thanks to an old, recently significantly grown philosophically friendly Romulan underground party, which includes the rising new proconsul Neral, who claims the Romulan senate itself can no longer resist the people's outcry for peace, but is actually in league with Sela. Klingon captain K'Vada isn't amused when Data claims he may be able to crack the Romulan encryption log. Vulcan-human half-blood Spock and android Data exchange views on the virtues of emotional and cool logical qualities. Meanwhile commander Riker's Ferengi investigation for the stolen Vulcan ship continues, starting with the mundane wife of the smuggler who died while pursued and finds a Barolian ship was involved. Spock and Picard fear rightly it all ties together in a Romulan war plot... Written by

Do not be distressed. Your dream of reunification is not dead. It will simply take a different form - the Romulan conquest of Vulcan.
