Transcript Panel 1:
Commander Dale Zurkett: Anyway... the Romulan Empire is about as powerful as the Federation. So to avoid all-out war, we try to negotiate treaties when we can.
That's why I'm... we're here.
Stickleback: And you are this Federation leader?
Dale: Ha! Far from it. I'm just the first officer of a ship that my leaders sent here.
Stickleback: But you say you can help us?
Dale: As much as I'm able.
Now you said you're enslaved... but that's the LEAST of their crimes?
Stickleback: You must understand... it was not always like this.
Spoogians have known of the point-ears for a long time.

A golden age came to Sping-Spang-Spoogie.
Dale: Well, we call the "sky fire" a particle shower. But what you said matches our data records.
Stickleback: After a time, the great ones left. Spoogians alone again.
So we learned to fix and run the big machines.
Dale: But then the Romulans came back.
Stickleback: Yes! But not like in the stories of before. This time they did not lay down their weapons.
And they make us build more machines filled with the terrible weapons.
They take our food, give us back a pittance, and call it "equity."
They take our spice and pay us nothing. They take our men and women as slaves to dote upon their leaders.
