Storyline

Although Riker considers maverick federation scientist Kosinski's project to vastly boast the propulsion absurd, Picard obeys the admiralty orders. Fascinated, Wesley sits with his alien assistant and wins his confidence. the results surpass eve Kosinski's wildest dreams, jumping into a galaxy far beyond the explored part of the universe. Deciding against immediate study, Picard orders Kosinski to get them back. Only Wesley noticed that his assistant, who 'faded' supernaturally, is the real key. 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

During the first jump, Data states that their velocity is "off the scale". Kosinski then says that for the next attempt he would just do what he did before. However, during each of the following two jumps, their speed never exceeds warp 1.5, according to Data's instruments. As we learn later, Kosinski wasn't really doing anything - it was the Traveler moving the ship, and he was obviously doing things very differently those other two times, because they left space as we know it. The fact that the warp at those other jumps stayed at 1.5 was mentioned specifically to let us know that Traveller's abilities go far beyond such mundane things as "warp factors". See more »

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.
