Starfleet command extends greetings to commissioner Bele of the planet Cheron. His urgent request to be transported to his planet with the man he claims prisoner has been taken under consideration. It is with great regret that we cannot honor that request. Intergalactic treaty clearly specifies that no being can be extradited without due process. In view of the circumstances, we have no doubt that after a hearing at starbase, commissioner Bele will be permitted to retain his prisoner and will be provided transportation.
The message from Starfleet Command to the Enterprise in regards to Bele and his desire to take Lokai back to their planet as a prisoner.
