"Days of Yesteryear" would have been a more proper title, as Data finds an ancient space capsule from Earth, with three people who have been frozen for over 400 years. Meanwhile, Starfleet sends the Enterprise to the edge of the Romulan Neutral Zone, where their starbases and personnel have disappeared after decades without contact between the Federation and the Romulans. Meanwhile, Dr. Crusher revives the three survivors who died of incurable diseases and were placed in cryonic freeze after their deaths in the hopes that cures might be found in the future. Upon their first encounter, Captain Picard also learns from the Romulans that their starbases and personnel have also disappeared. Written by

If the cryogenic station was a 20th Century orbiter, there is no way it could have gotten into deep space. Also, none of the lights would still be working, considering they had been on for 3 centuries. In the outside shots of the station, the "solar panels" can be seen to be clearly damaged/broken. Hence it would unlikely that they would still be operating after 3 centuries. See more
