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

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
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
