"Captain's Personal Log: I trust my concern over the problems of ship's CounselorTroi are not based merely on losing a highly valuable crew member. But it seems to me that she is trapped by a custom of her homeworld which the facts of 24th century life have made unwise and unworkable. I wish I could intervene."
"Captain's Personal Log: I'm entering the ship's holodeck where images of reality can be created by our ship's computer. Highly useful in crew training. Highly enjoyable when used for games and recreation."
"Captain's Personal Log: I am delighted with how the holodeck has created the fictional world of Dixon Hill the 20th centurydetective who's been a hero of mine since childhood. The characters are generated by the computer, of course yet they feel real...they seem real in every way."
"Captain's Personal Log, Stardate41776.1. The apparent death of Walker Keel has had a powerful impact on me. I now believe there may be a cancer growing within the ranks of Starfleet. As a result, I have alerted my Executive Officer to the suspicions voiced by Keel and the others."
"Captain's Personal Log, Supplemental. While it is quite unusual for a starship to return to Earth we seem to be left with no other choice. I have apprised the remaining bridge crew of our situation."
"Captain's Personal Log: Although CommanderData has assured me that his odd behavior will return to normal, I can't help thinking that something went wrong during his visit to Gravesworld."
"Captain's Personal Log. We have arrived at Starbase 6 where Miss Brianon will await transport back to Earth. I'm greatly troubled by the unusual behavior of Commander Data and fear that somehow it is directly related to the experiments of Ira Graves."
"Captain's Personal Log, Stardate 45025.4. It is with a profound sense of relief that I have ordered the fleet back to Federation territory following the Romulan withdrawal and the news of Gowron's victory. We have arrived at the Klingon Homeworld where I will present the High Council with a full report on our encounter with the Romulans."
