"Data," La Forge said, once he had cleared the window to the pods. "These are not Vulcans."
"What?" Data said. "That can"t be."
"These are Romulans," La Forge said. "They may resemble Vulcans; but they are not."
Data lands the cloaked shuttle inside the Rollin's garage.
They had left Amanda behind at the work force, for now, at least. It was Amanda's request that she stay to finish her duties. So Data and La Forge respected her decision. Data has a bad feeling crawling up his artificial skin. Data gets up, then presses the door latch opening button, and gets out of the shuttle.
"Data, where are you going?" La Forge asks.
"To the house," Data said.
This puzzled La Forge.
"Why?" La Forge asks.
Data walks out of the garage. He saw fresh boot prints on the fine brown dirt. Data walks alongside the boot prints carefully not to disturb evidence. The android mentally documents the surroundings in his processor for in case anyone comes in and accidentally get rids of the evidence. He had a bad feeling that it wasn't just an average human who had done what might be a criminally unfounded deed.
"Jake?" Data calls.
The TV is off.
Data hears a groan.
"Data..." Amanda's father groans.
Data comes into the living room where on the floor lays Amanda's father. The android comes to the side of the ailing man.
"Who did this?" Data asks.
"...Stavo," Amanda's father faintly said. "He's...He's...He's...He's killing other people."
Data is confused.
"Why?" Data asks.
"...That project, getting rid of loose ends," Amanda's father said, he weakly takes Data's hand but makes a firm grip. "Please...Make sure my baby girl doesn't die."
"I can try," Data said.
"You will,Data," Amanda's father said.
Amanda's father's grip loosens and his eyes lost light. He lets go of Data's hand letting it collapse to the floor. Amanda's father's head turns to the side on the rug. Data mutters 'Goodbye, Mr Rollins' then closes the man's eyes using his fingers.
"Data, what is it?" La Forge asks, coming into the house.
"Jake is dead," Data said.
La Forge stops at the kitchen.
"What?" La Forge said, in surprise.
"It appears that Stavo has murdered Amanda's father," Data said, getting up.
"We should call Amanda about her father's death," La Forge said.
"Amanda turned her phone off before she left," Data said. "We should focus on getting the Romulans awaken and calling in the authorities."
"So you are saying we report this and go where?" La Forge asks.
"Anywhere," Data said. "But we could go to..." He picks up a brochure from the table. "The empty studio that brought Earth our world."
