Maybe a generation ship is the answer, if you can find enough colonists who don't mind leaving the landing to their descendants. Or suspended animation, perhaps. But before we can face the long gulf between the galaxies, first we must break free from the glimmering cage that has hemmed us in since time began. " "I never quite thought of it that way," Geordi said. " "The biggest nest still hems you in, as the largest cage is still a cage," Faal insisted with a trace of bitterness in his voice. "Look at me.
Not a word," Geordi insisted. He scratched his chin as he mulled the matter over. " A scowl crossed Picard's face. "The professor's experiment is not without its dangers. " "Any time is better than none at all," Troi explained. "At least that's what the family counselors back on Betazed thought.

Then she looked around the conference table and saw the glow of the captain's inspiration reflected in the faces of her fellow officers. Even Beverly, despite her earlier doubts, shared their commitment to the mission. On second thought, maybe they can. "Thank you, Captain," Lem Faal said warmly.
