Velura's assistant Smith wants to leave his job at the mining outpost behind, but there's no way to grant him passage on the Enterprise. Data states that taking him "would be against Starfleet regulations", Worf rues that "there is nothing we can do to assist him", and Riker reflects that "he certainly can't come with us". In fact, this encounter has no branching choices at all: you can only click Acknowledge in response to Smith's complaints.
However, at one point, players were clearly meant to have the option of beaming him up. An unexplained but very common glitch turns the "Mr. Smith" topic in the observation lounge into an airing of grievances about his presence aboard ship:
|Picard||You must get rid of that man Number One- take him back to Velura.|
|Worf||That man is a nuisance.|
|Troi||I think we all would be better off, if we got rid of Mr Smith.|
|Crusher||Now that you have removed that man from his planet, he is your responsibility.|
|Geordi||You must do something about that man Sir. He is constantly getting in the way.|
|Data||I see nothing wrong in Mr Smith's actions. Is not everyone entitled to their opinion?|
Despite the above, Smith is still back at the D-39 base, and can be killed if it suffers a terrorist attack. Even then, the erroneous lines remain accessible in the lounge.
