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 first and only time that a Runabout is seen in Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987). They're more often seen in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993). This is also the only episode where we get to see the interior aft compartment of a Runabout. See more »


Picard is exposed to a "temporal anomaly" around the fruit bowl for less than ten seconds of real time. This causes his fingernails grow around a half inch longer. Data reports that time is passing at 50 times the normal rate, which means that Picard's hand was inside the anomaly for less than 500 seconds (around eight minutes). His fingernails would not have experienced any visible growth in this amount of time. 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.
