Jean-Luc Picard: Look at me, Shinzon. Your heart, your hands, your eyes are the same as mine. The blood pumping within you, the raw material is the same. We have the same potential. Shinzon: That's the past, Captain. Jean-Luc Picard: It can be the future. Buried deep within you, beneath all the years of pain and anger, there is something that has never been nurtured: the potential to make yourself a better man. And that is what it is to be human. To make yourself more than you are. Oh, yes - I know you. There was a time you looked at the stars and dreamed of what might be. Shinzon: Childish dreams, Captain. Lost in the dilithium mines of Remus.


Picard attempts to reason with Shinzon, who stubbornly sticks to his goal.
