As the Romulan ship disappears I contact Capt Smith.
Capt Smith will you patch me through to the Romulan ship.
Smith: I'll hail them.
As Smith is working on the hail I looked out the portal again and there is no Romulan ship.
Sirkota to Taylor Sir Commodore Veldman of Acacia Fleet is contacting you.
Taylor: Put him through to my readyroom.
Commodore Veldman: Kent, I have it under good authority that Starfleet placed that hologram of the Romulan ship in the same area of space as the starbase. That was to test the Starbase.
Taylor: Well I'll be. Did we pass? But what about the Romulan warbirds at the border?
Commodore Veldman: Yes, the Starbase and it's crew. Capt Smith was in on it the whole time.
You will enjoy the next episode of Starbase 49 when the crew starts to disappear!
Captain Taylor Out...........
