i just had to laugh when, after having just watched an episode of tng in which picard presses for the court martial of an admiral based on his efforts to develop cloaking technology for the federation in violation of a treaty with the romulans, i witnessed the following scene in an episode which occurred just a few stardates later:
riker: nothing yet. the pod is 32 hours overdue.
worf: sir. i recommend we launch a probe to increase the range of our sensor sweeps.
riker: launching a probe into cardassian space would be a treaty violation.
picard: mister worf, prepare a probe, and launch when ready.
