Episode propaganda

Galen (Norman Lloyd), Picard's old Professor pays a visit to the Enterprise and attempts to convince the Captain to leave his post and join him on an expedition to new worlds. the Professor claims to be on the verge of a remarkable discovery, but will not share the details with the Captain unless the Captain joins him. Picard declines, and Professor Galen leaves the ship but sends a distress call some time later when his ship is attacked by a strange vessel. Professor Galen is killed in the attack and Captain Picard continues following Galen's discovery - something that the Cardassians, the Klingons and the Romulans are all interested in.

The progenitor's speech

You're wondering who we are... why we have done this... how it has come that I stand before you, the image of a being from so long ago. Life evolved on my planet before all others in this part of the galaxy. We left our world, explored the stars and found none like ourselves. Our civilisation thrived for ages - but what is the life of one race compared to the vast stretches of cosmic time? We knew that one day we would be gone and nothing of us would survive - so we left you. Our scientists seeded the primordial oceans of many worlds, where life was in its infancy. The seed codes directed your evolution toward a physical form resembling ours: this body you see before you, which is of course shaped as yours is shaped, for you are the end resuLieutenant The seed codes also contain this message, which is scattered in fragments on many different worlds. It was our hope that you would have to come together in fellowship and companionship to hear this message - and if you can see and hear me, our hope has been fulfilled. You are a monument, not to our greatness, but to our existence. That was our wish: that you too would know life and would keep alive our memory. There is something of us in each of you and so, something of you in each other. Remember us.
