Picard, LaForge, Data and Troi return from a sadly boring scientific conference to the Enterprise. They experience weird instances where either one or several of them are perceived to seem frozen in time by the other(s), although both biometrics and technical shuttle diagnostics check out perfectly normal. It soon turns out there is a whole spray of tiny local occurrences of time-space-continuum distortions, most worrying in a pattern pointing at the Enterprise, which they find frozen as well as a Romulan war-bird, which seems to be frozen during an invasion, but once they find a way to get aboard without being sucked-in that appears fake. The source of the distortions is an organism, from another continuum. Written by
Did You Know?
After Picard, Data and Troi beam over to the bridge of the Enterprise frozen in time, Data tries to work the Comm station and tells the Captain that "the equipment is no longer functioning." Seconds later, Picard pulls up display after display from the Tactical station detailing current Security team deployments. As he moves his hands across the panel, you can hear the clicks and beeps of the computer acknowledging his requests. See more

Captain, I think this is gonna work. But... it's gonna take some time.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard
Well, Mister La Forge - it would seem that time is something that we have plenty of.
