Storyline

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

Goofs

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 »

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.

More craptastic stuff involving the space-time continuum.
30 November 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I hate episodes like this one, though I should note that "Timescape" has a very respectable score on IMDb. Shows about time and space anomalies never leave me satisfied.

A runabout with several crew members is away from the ship to some boring conference. In the meantime, the Enterprise responds to a distress call from a Romulan ship--something which worked out BADLY in the past on this show. When the runabout returns with these folks who attended the conference, they see the Enterprise and the Romulan ship in what appears to be a space battle...and they and the crew inside the ships are frozen in time! What gives? And, how can they right things?

Not only did I think that this episode was amazingly static, but I also thought the ending was awfully flat and anticlimactic. Not a terrible episode but not a very good one either.
