Enterprise Computer: 20 seconds to auto destruct. Ten seconds to auto destruct. Commander Riker: Captain. Captain Picard: Abort auto destruct sequence. Enterprise Computer: Riker, William T., do you concur? Commander Riker: Yes, absolutely. I do indeed concur wholeheartedly. Enterprise Computer: Auto destruct canceled. Captain Picard: A simple "yes" would have sufficed, Number One.


On the bridge, fearing it might be a trick by Nagilum, the Captain waits to the last possible second to abort the destruct order. The crew breaths sigh of relief.
