Bringing supplies to a Federation subspace communications relay station near the Klingon border, the Enterprise finds it deserted by shuttle, only a dog remains. There is a residue Crusher guesses to be the remains of Lieutenant Aquiel Uhnari, the dog's owner, whose personal logs reveal to Gordi her childhood paranoia and theory the local Klingon commander made frequent visit to abuse her, while she also feared her male only colleague. When Picard hints at his influence with the Klingon leader since he arbitrated his succession, the planet governor Torak accepts to help himself- and produces Aquiel, alive- or not, and what about the DNA traces Worf found of one single Klingon? Crusher continues the DNA identification with spooky results... Written by
