CRUSHER: Thank you.
Worf: Even if Dr. Quaice had been injured, why would his belongings be missing? (Picard’s ready room) Sir, I have several teams conducting a deck by deck search. It is not yet complete.
DATA: I have scanned the entire ship, Captain. Other than the Enterprise's regular complement, I can find no one else onboard.
Crusher: Your sensors wouldn’t detect him if he were dead.
DATA: That is correct, Doctor.
Picard: Could, uh, your friend have returned to the Starbase with out telling you, an emergency of some sort?
CRUSHER: There were a lot of people going back and forth between the ship and the starbase yesterday.
DATA: We can easily check the transporter ID traces.
Picard: By all means, check the trace logs, but even if the results are negative contact Starbase command. We should leave nothing to chance.
Data: Aye, sir.
Picard: One moment, Doctor. I’m sure you’re aware of the procedure involving passengers.
CRUSHER: Of course. I don't know why Lieutenant Worf wasn't told about Doctor Quaice.
Picard: Well, I was not informed either.
CRUSHER: But I sent in a request weeks ago.
Picard: Then it must have been intercepted before it reached me.
CRUSHER: And someone else sent the approval? Why?
Picard: Dr. Quaice was stationed at the Starbase for some time?
CRUSHER: Six years.
Picard: Perhaps it would be prudent to find out if he had acquired any enemies there.
RIKER: Course laid in for Durenia Four, sir.
