    Hajar: "...We had discussed changing our approach after I filed the flight plan. Final decision was made in route to Saturn. I didn't consider it significant enough to mention here. I apologize for the confusion, sir. I should have been more precise."

    Satelk: Did you see Mister Albert's ship break formation before it collided with your ship?

    HAJAR: No, sir. My first indication of trouble was when my proximity alarm went off.

    Satlek: Cadet Sito, you were in the tail position, therefore you should have seen any sign of trouble from Cadet Albert. Yet you saw nothing? :vulcan:

    Sito: No, sir. I was flying solely on sensor readings at the time. I did not have any visual contact with Cadet Albert's ship when he broke formation.

    PICARD: Well, it's unusual to fly on sensors alone in this type of maneuver. The pilot relies on visual cues from the other ships to maintain formation.

    Brand: If you were flying on sensors alone, perhaps you could tell us the orientations of his ship before the collision.

    Brand: You were flying a ship, traveling eighty thousand kph, with Cadet Albert's ship less than ten meters away and you don't know what his orientation was?

    Locarno: Admiral, Josh was a good pilot, but lately he'd been having difficulties. He'd get nervous during close fly-bys and pull away in the final seconds. His formation flying was a little erratic.
