Near the end of “The Survivors,” the Douwd (Kevin Uxbridge) vanishes out of sight after its non-human nature is revealed by Captain Picard. Geordi then remarks that it is in the turbolift.
Does this mean that the Douwd actually rode the turbolift enroute to Deanna’s quarters? What an odd picture that would be!
It’s possible, of course, that the Douwd passed through the wall of the lift in its energy form. Obviously there is no answer in the episode itself, but does any other source speak to this?
