Storyline

Puzzled, the Enterprise follows the enigmatic trail of distress messages left behind by the vessel of reputed time-space-continuum researcher Dr. Paul Manheim, which went missing years ago during his last experiment. It went terribly wrong, causing a time-distorting ripple to spread from a binary star system and pulsar's tapped-into unimaginable energy, which already affects the Enterpise crew. To prevent the galaxy being ripped open, the process must be reversed, although gravely, maybe fatally, injured Mannheim can only give unreliable instructions to Data. Picard is largely focused on Paul's younger wife Jenice, once Jean-Luc's fiancée, whom he dumped in Paris for his Starfleet dream. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

47 reference: Data estimates that the next time distortion will occur in 28 to 47 minutes. See more »

Goofs

One of many incidents which contradict the notion that Data cannot use contractions 1st when being asked to go to the lab, he replies "Times flies when you're having fun" and 2nd, when he drops the anti-matter in the time rift he says, "It's me!". Data also uses bad grammar - the line should read, "It is I!". See more »

Quotes

Commander William T. Riker: [about the time distortion] The captain of the Lalo described it as a hiccough.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Hiccough?
Lt. Commander Data: Actually, sir, that may be an incorrect analogy.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: How so, Data?
Lt. Commander Data: A hiccough is a spasmatic inhalation with closure of the glottis, accompanied by a peculiar sound. If we were to continue this analogy to a body function, what occurred would be best represented by...
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Enough, Data.

I had trouble keeping my eyes open with this one....
11 November 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This episode of "Star Trek: The Next Generation" is a rather poor one--mostly because the show features two plots and one of them is frankly very dull. As for the other, it is decent...but nothing to get excited about either. Overall, it left me very flat.

The Enterprise notices a space wrinkle where things repeat themselves for an instant. This distortion is investigated--and it takes the ship right in the path of a woman who Picard abandoned many years ago in order to go to space. Michelle Phillips stars as the woman and this part of the show isn't bad. But the time distortion is so very dull and uninteresting. It really was just an excuse to bring Picard and his old flame together--and it should have been a lot better. Overall, sort of like a soap opera and as far as the sci-fi goes, it was a bust.

By the way, while many viewers will recognize the phrase "we'll always have Paris". If you don't, it's from "Casablanca".
