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 the shuttle arrives at the two ships it is stated that the energy beam is coming from the ship's deflector dish which makes up the forward wall of the engineering section. Later in an external view after Picard, Troy and Data leave the bridge the energy beam can be seen coming from the rear left area of the "neck" of the ship. See more »


[last lines]
Lt. Commander Data: I have been testing the aphorism, "A watched pot never boils." I have boiled the same amount of water in this kettle sixty-two times. In some cases I have ignored the kettle; in others, I have watched it intently. In every instance, the water reaches its boiling point in precisely 51.7 seconds. It appears I am not capable of perceiving time any differently than my internal chronometer.
Commander William T. Riker: Why don't you turn it off?
Lt. Commander Data: Sir?
Commander William T. Riker: Data, people do not *have* internal chronometers. Why don't you ...

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.
