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 KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


The name of the runabout in this episode was never revealed, however. It is simply known as the Enterprise-D runabout, although reused footage from DS9 gives the ship the USS Rio Grande's registry, NCC-72452. See more »


When the shuttle arrives at the two ships it is stated that the energy beam is coming from the ship's deflector dish which makes up the forward wall of the engineering section. Later in an external view after Picard, Troy and Data leave the bridge the energy beam can be seen coming from the rear left area of the "neck" of the ship. See more »

Another Slipped Dimension
2 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As the principles of the Enterprise return from a conference, there are some disruptions in time. Crew members freeze up and lose time as the others watch. When they arrive back at the Enterprise, something is going on with a Romulan ship. The Enterprise appears to have been boarded by Romulans but everyone is frozen in place. Riker is being assaulted by a Romulan and Beverly is being fired on (or so it appears) by another. There appears to be chaos on board. Not only that, but Worf is transporting more Romulans (who seem to be injured) on board the ship. To complicate things, too long an exposure seems to affect the brain. Picard begins laughing hysterically, having drawn a smiley face in a cloud emanating from the core. Because the returning crew can't figure things out immediately, they must be very careful to keep the status quo for a time lest they exacerbate an already dangerous situation. This calls for some careful planning. Oh, there is also an alien presence on the ship that must be dealt with.
