We have departed from Starbase 179 and are headed for a rendezvous with the Klingon vessel Pagh. I have informed the staff of Commander Riker's temporary assignment.

I have been aboard the Pagh a short time but long enough to be impressed with the abilities and single-mindedness of the Klingons.

Although our search has been extensive, we are still unable to locate the Klingon ship or any evidence of its destruction.
