Captain, this is Counsellor Troi.
Computer, locate Captain Picard.
The Captain is not on the ship.
Commander, there’s a shuttle missing from Bay 2.
Answering all stop, sir.
I have hailed the shuttle on all frequencies. No response.
Sensors indicate no shuttle or other ships in this sector.
I think we can assume the Captain is aboard that shuttle.
How could he get to the shuttlebay and leave the Enterprise without us knowing? That’s not possible.
Take it easy, Wes. We're going to find him. I want to begin a methodical search. Worf, set sensors on maximum scan. Data, use our present location as a centre. Plot a search pattern from these coordinates to cover the most area in the least time.
Search pattern has been input, sir.
Engage, Mister Crusher.
First officer's log, stardate 42761.3. We have not been able to determine why, or how, Captain Picard left the Enterprise. We can't even be certain he is in the missing shuttle, although that is the assumption on which we are proceeding. For the last six hours, we have been searching without success.
We have covered the area in a spherical pattern which a vessel without warp drive could traverse in the time allotted.
Widen the area.
Do we stay out here years? Decades? I am ageless Picard. You are not.
The Enterprise will continue with Riker as Captain.
You are an impossibly stubborn human.
Return me to my ship!
If I return you to your ship will you agree to give my request a full hearing? You’re right Picard. This is the proper venue for our discussion.
