Numerous log entries were made on the first officer's log for the USS Enterprise-D. They were recorded by Commander William T. Riker while serving as First officer.



Mission to Ligon II

Mission to Parliament

  • "First Officer's Log, supplemental. On the orders of Captain Picard we have returned to the vicinity of the energy pattern cloud. I am personally convinced that something from this cloud now shares the captain's mind. But there seems to be nothing we can do – at least within regulations."
  • "First Officer's Log, supplemental. More than an hour has passed since the captain beamed out, energy only. Every effort has been made to determine his whereabouts."

Mission to Torona IV

(TNG: "The Big Goodbye")

  • "First Officer's Log, stardate 41997.7. We are about to make a brief but necessary contact with the Jarada a reclusive, insect-like race known for its idiosyncratic attitude toward protocol. The Jarada demand a precise greeting in this case from Captain Picard. Their language is most unusual. The slightest mispronunciation is regarded as an insult." (TNG: "The Big Goodbye")

Mission to Omicron Theta

Mission to Velara III

Mission to Pacifica

Mission to the Romulan-Federation Neutral Zone

  • "First Officer's Log, stardate 41986.0. We are awaiting the return of Captain Picard who was summoned to Starbase 718. Meanwhile, our sensors have been monitoring an ancient capsule floating in our vicinity, which appears to be from Earth." (TNG: "The Neutral Zone")

First contact with Borg

  • "First Officer's Log, stardate 42761.3. We have not been able to determine why or how Captain Picard left the Enterprise. We can't even be certain he is in the missing shuttle although that is the assumption on which we are proceeding. For the last six hours, we've been searching without success." (TNG: "Q Who")


Mission to Mintaka III

Diversion to Lonka Cluster

  • "First Officer's Log, supplemental. Although we're still eighteen hours from the Lonka Pulsar, the captain has ordered us to slow to one-half impulse. He has offered no explanation." (TNG: "Allegiance")

  • "First Officer's Log, supplemental. The Enterprise is returning to the last known location of the missing shuttlecraft." (TNG: "Final Mission")


The Tamarian incident.

  • "First Officer's Log, supplemental. I am sending a shuttlecraft to find Captain Picard, gambling that the Tamarians will sit tight rather than risk an exchange of phaser fire."
  • "First Officer's Log, stardate 45048.8. Our attempt to transport Captain Picard back to the ship has failed. My options are narrowing and my patience is all but gone."
