Where In The World Is … ?

STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION
“Encounter at Farpoint” by D.C. Fontana and Gene Roddenberry

130 INT. HOLODECK CORRIDOR

Riker moving as if seeking someone. He intercepts a YOUNG ENSIGN who is passing and the junior officer sees Riker’s emblem of rank and snaps to attention.

RIKER
Ensign, can you help me find Commander Data? I was told he’s somewhere on this deck.

YOUNG ENSIGN
This way, sir.

131 ANGLE AT CORRIDOR WALL

As the Ensign steps to a black surface of the corridor wall.

YOUNG ENSIGN
You must be new to these galaxy class starships, sir.

(puts hand on the black surface, saying)

Tell me the location of Commander Data.

At the touch and the words “Tell me” the black surface comes alive with light patterns showing appropriate information.

COMPUTER VOICE
Lieutenant Commander Data… now located in Holodeck area 4-J.

YOUNG ENSIGN
(indicating readout)
And as you see, sir, it’s pointing you that way.

RIKER
Go that way? How far?

YOUNG ENSIGN
(smiles)
You’ll know, sir.

Riker AD LIBS a thanks, goes in the indicated direction.
