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

During this episode, Captain Picard references events seen in the TNG episodes "Time's Arrow" and "Time's Arrow, Part II", when a subspace force field was used on Devidia II, and the episode "Face of the Enemy", when Counselor Troi was aboard a Romulan warbird for several days. See more
When the Enterprise explodes from the warp core breach, you can see the explosion radiating outwards from the top rear of the saucer section. However, the warp core and the breach are located in the secondary hull, far below the visible explosion point. The explosion has already begun in Engineering, so it is unlikely the explosion would be seen exiting the top of the rear saucer section nowhere near Engineering. The explosion should have emanated from further down on the ship, at the very least out the bottom of the emergency ejection hatch, which would have been the path of least resistance.
A secondary explosion point can be seen emanating from the forward starboard saucer section as well, which also seems unlikely given the force of a warp core explosion and its distance from the warp core. See more
