After successfully responding to a Romulan vessel's engine failure distress call, Riker's Enterprise rescue team loses all traces of Geordi and Ensign Ro Laren while they beam back aboard; Data ponders on an appropriate memorial service given their different cultural traditions. The two find they are transported aboard but immaterial, unnoticed by other Enterprise crew. Lo thinks they're dead, Geordi gradually works out, like Data aboard, they must be affected by a Klingon-type cloaking technology aboard the Romulan ship interfering with another damaged system. Lo discovers there's a Romulan beamed up with them, who is ready to protect the secret by killing them.

When Ro is running through the ship to escape the Romulan, she runs in a straight line even though this is the least likely strategy to succeed. As evidenced by her attempt to attack the Romulan in the Holodeck, neither phased being can see through walls, so Ro could have tried to attack again or simply have run in a different direction, and the Romulan would have had no way of knowing which way she went.

In almost all societies, it is traditional to say a ritual farewell to those you call friends. I never knew what a friend was until I met Geordi. He spoke to me as though I were human. He treated me no differently from anyone else. He accepted me for what I am. And that, I have learned, is friendship.

But I do not know how to say goodbye.
