Re: TNG: The Body Electric by David Mack Review Thread (Spoilers!)
After ordering the recon mission Picard also tells Worf to get an away team ready to be deployed if the recon mission goes well. That's at the end of Chapter 8 then at the beginning of Chapter 9 the away team mission is getting ready to go so the implication is that the recon mission went well which is confirmed by Worf while they are getting ready.
Thanks! Must've just missed the Away Team bit. I stopped reading when I ran into what looked to be a discontinuity. Didn't want to be spoiled if it was part of the book further down the line.
