Captain's log, stardate 41753.3 
On a fairly routine mission to document the questioned existence of the legendary planet Faltos in Sector 902, the Enterprise and her crew encountered a renegade starship and the omnipotent entity Q. As a safety precaution, the saucer section of our ship -- along with non-commissioned civilian passengers -- was jetisoned. Subsequently, the saucer was lost in space for several hours and has since -- inexplicably -- returned and joined the stardrive section of the Enterprise. Simultaneously -- and perhaps as a direct corollary to the saucer's return -- Q has discovered himself stripped of any and all powers he once might have posessed. Distraught, Q attempted suicide. But, in a struggle to prevent such an action, Lieutenant j.g. Geordi La Forge has been struck down by phaser fire meant to destroy Q...
