In that year Adams contacted the USS Enterprise-D which had recently returned to Earth inquiring why the starship had come. His response came from Beverly Crusher, who was temporarily in command, who told him half the crew, including Captain Picard, were indisposed due to an outbreak of Andorian measles, and that she would have the captain contact Adams as soon as he was healthy enough to do so. This appeared to satisfy Adams for the moment, though in truth the Captain was not on the Enterprise at all, and the measles were fictitious cover so that Picard and an away team could investigate a Starfleet conspiracy on Earth undisturbed.
