    DATA: Have you compared the genetic code with the Ambassador's last recorded transporter ID traces?

    Crusher: No...that's not standard procedure. Why?

    Crusher: A wild goose chase? Alright. Computer, access the transporter ID trace of Ambassador T'Pel. All right...there's the genetic record of the Ambassador when she beamed aboard the Enterprise. Now, the breakdown of the organic material found on the Transporter pad should be identical. Mitochondrial structure fits the general parameters. No change in the nucleotide bases...There's a slight discrepancy in the base pair sequence. Chemically, these are identical however, the organic sample from the Transporter is showing numerous single-bit errors...like replicated material.

    DATA: Can you postulate an explanation for the discrepancy?

    Crusher: I'd say the DNA was either mutated by the Transporter during the rematerialization process...

    Crusher: Or these aren't the remains of the Ambassador.

    [Ready room] DATA: The only abnormality found during my investigation was a temporary increase in the matter to energy signal ratio. Due to the circumstances, I decided to investigate the possibility that a second transporter signal had caused the fluctuation. Although this was highly improbable, it was the only remaining theory.

    Riker: A second transporter signal? From where?

    LaForge: Romulan transporters operate on similar subspace frequencies to our own. With only minor adjustments they could be made to simulate our own transporter carrier wave.

    PICARD: Are you saying they beamed the Ambassador off our own pad?

    Data: While simultaneously a small amount of genetically similar material was left in the Ambassador's place.

    Worf: (Over com) The ship is still in the Neutral Zone. On course 0-7-9 mark 1-2-5...speed, warp two.

    Data: The safest and most logical decision in this situation is to contact Starfleet and await further instructions. However, based on past experience, I project only a 17% chance Captain Picard will choose that alternative.
