Episode Notes
Log Entries:
*Captain's Log, Stardate 41249.3. We have orbited the two major planets of the Beta Renner system taking aboard delegates from those two worlds. Since achieving space flight their major lifeforms – the Anticans and the Selay – have become deadly enemies but both have also applied for admission into our Federation. We are to deliver these delegates to this sector's neutral conference planet – called Parliament – in the hope their dispute can be resolved.
*Captain's Log, Stardate 41249.4. I've ordered an immediate investigation into the death of Assistant Chief Engineer Singh. We continue to run on impulse power.
*First Officer's Log, supplemental. After meeting with the senior officers, Dr. Crusher and I have decided to approach the Captain regarding his recent behavior.
*First Officer's Log, supplemental. On the orders of Captain Picard, we have returned to the vicinity of the energy pattern cloud. I am personally convinced that something from this cloud now shares the Captain's mind. But there seems to be nothing we can do--at least within regulations.
"First Officer's Log, supplemental. More than an hour has passed since the Captain beamed out, energy only. Every effort has been made to determine his whereabouts.
