The Wrong Man

I woke up a captive, my arms in restraints, in the brig of an unknown spacecraft. My assumption was that Starfleet had apprehended me because I had gone AWOL on Surak's Razor rather than answer their questions. My assumption turned out to be incorrect.

He demanded to know why I had run to Risa. One of my abductors explained that I had been found in the presence of a female Vulcan. "Ah," said the superior knowingly, "I understand.
