"Captain’s Log, stardate 7161.6. I just received word that Admiral Lerl is coming aboard the Intrepid, his purpose is to interview ‘my Romulans’ to use his words. I’ve already informed the crewmembers as to their impending encounter with the Admiral. Intrepid is currently assuming standard orbit around Starbase 2 for pickup of Admiral Lerl and his staff. I don’t approve of this but this is his experiment so my voice has no say."
