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

When Picard, Data, Geordi and Troi are seated around a table on the Runabout, the seats are the same ones from the Star Trek: Voyager (1995) conference lounge. See more »


When one of the engines of the Runabout touches the temporal distortion and fails the Runabout starts spinning and is still moving forward. Despite this after the crew discovered the temporal distortion as the reason for the engine failure they say the engine is still touching the distortion at the point it had hit it. This is impossible. Since the Runabout spun around -after- AND was also moving -when- it the temporal distortion it would either have moved away from the point where it hit it or would have entered the distortion completely because of the spinning.

Deanna Troi: I was just leaving the reception when this Ktarian walks up to me and says...

Deanna Troi: sensitive man myself. I'm doing a thesis on interspecies mating rituals. Would you care to join me in some empirical research?"
Lt. Commander Data: [after La Forge has commented on Dr. Mizan, the Ktarian] Did you help him with his research, Counselor?
Deanna Troi: Absolutely not!
Lt. Commander Data: I thought it was a topic you were interested in.

Another great time episode.
30 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

ST:TNG:151 - "Timescape" (Stardate: 46944.2) - this is the 25th episode of the 6th season of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

In another very intriguing episode that characterizes the greatness of the 6th season of TNG, this time it's again about the unique effects of time (pardon the pun!).

Picard, Data, Geordi, and Troi, on their return via shuttlecraft from a symposium, encounter ripples in time where time either slows down or speeds up. Quickly returning to the Enterprise, they see that the ship is frozen in time, firing and being fired upon by a Romulan Warbird (which is also frozen in time)! Now it's up to them to get on the Enterprise without becoming frozen themselves figuring out what in the name of time is happening!

Trivia note: this is another episode directed by Adam Niomy (Leonard "Spock" Nimoy's son). Riker also gets a deep scratch by Data's cat Spot! Picard recalls Troi knowing more about a Romulan Warbird since she was on one in "Face Of The Enemy".
