During a battle with an alien vessel, Captain Picard has jettisoned the saucer section of the Enterprise, a standard safety procedure to protect the civilian members of the crew. The mysterious Q has dramatically reappeared on the Battle Bridge, and while the remaining crew members are distracted, the saucer has disappeared from their screens. Another of Q's tricks?


Captain's log, stardate 42128.3
Having successfully disabled the aggressive alien vessel before us, we have taken her surprisingly human crew aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise. While under attack by this unclassified carrier, we were forced to jettison our craft's saucer section. Usually a simple standard safety procedure, designed to spare the lives of our civilian passengers, I'm afraid I may have doomed everyone aboard her when I gave the order to initiate the maneuver, in this particular instance.
