Do return capsules need the scientific parts?

Recommended Posts

I'm asking because I'm working on a design for a "Mobile Science Station" (or MSS). Basically, my plan is to attach several "return" units, specifically, a Probe Body with a return system, and as I explore planets/moons, grab all the research by commanding it from the Probe body, then detaching it and returning it to Kerbin. Once I have my return trajector set, I'll switch back to the MSS and set it for it's next target.

My question however, is if I NEED the science stations after I do the research and detach the probe.
