Trivia

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 »

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 »

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.
