"What of them? Shall I destroy them?"
"Then they will learn nothing."
"A most interesting conclusion. But what if they never learn, Riker?"
"Is this a test also?"
"Hmm. In life, one is always tested."
"I see them much as we were several hundred years ago; but possessing the technology they now have, they're very dangerous.... But we can hardly hate what we once were. They may grow, and learn."
"And learn ways to destroy you?"
"Well, our values require us to face that possibility."
