Enterprise Computer (voice)


Lieutenant Worf proudly returns, by shuttle, from a holiday in the Klingon Empire as winner of a bat'leth tournament. Back on the Enterprise nothing is normal, and everything keeps changing repeatedly. He's convinced it's not his memory. He finds himself promoted to XO and married to Deanna, with two children (instead of Alexander), but unable to work the command console during a battle with the Cardassians - a situation that never took place, even their empire is taken over. After analyzing Geordi was in all the subsequent transition scenes, standing at his autopsy, Data works out a quantum physics answer. This spells huge potential consequences, not just for Worf but for the whole ship, and even much more. Written by KGF Vissers

It's Deja Vu All Over Again and Tiresome, Too.
25 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

This episode felt as if they were using themes from at least a few episodes and rehashing them again as far as a "temporal rift" goes. There was so much "tech speak/jargon, that I was getting lost, and I

started not caring after a while. Their solution to helping Worf just sounded contrived and quick to help finish up the episode. The lack of originality was off-putting.
