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

Goofs

In the holodeck café, when Francine says to Gabrielle that they have waited long enough, she sits with her legs parallel to each other (visible when you look very closely). Yet in the very next shot, as Gabrielle replies to her, Francine's legs are crossed. 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.

Picard Chooses the Enterprise
2 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent episode, addressing unrequited love and the fabric of space. An old friend and super scientist invokes his old friend's good nature to try to repair the results of experimentation in time. Because of this rift, a series of events take place where things become sort of stacked. This also brings in the character of a beautiful woman that Picard loved back in the day. As with Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca, she chose the great man, the man going places, even if she didn't love him. Because things are able to be repeated, Picard is given a second chance. He can let his friend die and get the girl or try to solve the problem. There are some wonderful scenes where events test the quick thinking of the crew as reality and time are chopped up. We get to see the lonely captain, wanting something so bad, an opportunity one never gets. We are also again able to see Beverly's true feelings for Jean-Luc. Of course, some believe that Picard's arbitrariness led to the doctor's husband losing his life. A very good episode with lots of implications.
