Before the trial: "Zinn is making a mistake by not hiring an advocate. I told him as much, but he wouldn't listen. I had hoped people would start taking me more seriously when I got this new tunic, but I sense that it isn't working."
After the trial: "I really thought Zinn was going to go with "You'll live to regret this!" rather than "Fools! I show you all!" It's a matter of personal taste, I suppose, but I think the former is more traditional."
This character's name is a reference to Counselor Deanna Troi from Star Trek: The Next Generation. His hope to be taken seriously via a new tunic may be a reference to how the character eventually changed from wearing skin-tight, revealing jumpsuits to a more traditional uniform.
