The next jump brings to where the crew's deepest hopes and fears come true. The alien assistant is ailing and reveals his 'traveller' identity. Wesley's astuteness is noted and fittingly rewarded with an academy cadet future. Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

According to Data, the subspace message sent to Starfleet from the M-33 Galaxy would take 51 years, 10 months, 9 weeks and 16 days to reach Earth. Unless the lengths of months, weeks or days has changed considerably by the 24th century or the relation of each unit to one other is different in subspace, this very impressive sounding time frame can just as easily be expressed with 52 years, two weeks and 3 or 4 days.

Quotes

The Traveler: Are you familiar with the intricacies of what is called here 'music'?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Somewhat.
The Traveler: And such musical genius as I saw in one of your ship's libraries, one called Mozart, who as a small child wrote astonishing symphonies, a genius who made music not only to be heard, but seen and felt beyond the understanding, the ability of others? Wesley is such a person, not with music, but with the equally lovely intricacies of time, energy, propulsion, and the instruments of this vessel, which allow all that to ...

Quite a Mind Trip
26 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the best episode so far. What makes it so is that the laws of physics become accessible to the broad array of characters. The Enterprise and its ilk have the greatest potential but they are limited by their very structures and the forces of time and space. So we need to have a force of some kind enter the picture. This is what happens with the Traveller. We also come to realize that while raw and impulsive, Wesley Crusher is a key figure. I know he is an annoying kid, but he is the focal point here. Something must be done as the crew fly across the universe, arriving at galaxies that could only be dreamed of. The Traveller is the embodiment of an x-factor to go beyond and yet integrate the physics they are dealing with. There are some marvelous twists and turns here. Characters and objects fade in and out during warping. At some point, one has to admit some sense of defeat and draw in the forces that are not understandable to the mere mortal. I found this episode really interesting.
