Major Kira : It's not the mission you're thinking about, is it? Or even the colonists in the zone. This is about you, isn't it, you and that other Will Riker out there, the man with your face, your name, your career. You are looking for a way to set yourself apart, some way to be different.
Thomas Riker : You shouldn't go fishing today. You won't catch anything.
[Tom Riker has hijacked the Defiant for a special Maquis-mission in Cardassian territory]
Major Kira : The Maquis are terrorists, and the only thing terrorists care about is attacking the enemy. I know, I was a terrorist, and if I'd had this ship then... I would've destroyed Deep Space Nine. I would've hit the Cardassians so hard, they would've screamed for peace; but I certainly wouldn't have gone flying off into the middle of Cardassia on some wild goose chase!
Thomas Riker : I guess we're different kinds of terrorists.
Major Kira : No - you're trying to be a hero. Terrorists don't get to be heroes.
Major Kira : Be a Starfleet officer one last time, think of your crew. I know you want Tom Riker to go out in a blaze of glory that they talk about for the next ten years. Don't drag them along with you.
