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

The Enterprise is transported at "off the scale" velocities to the M-33 galaxy over 2 million light years away. Geordi La Forge mentions that according to his calculations on his terminal, at maximum warp, it would take the Enterprise "over 300 years" to get home. According to numerous Star Trek-canon sources, Warp Factor 9 ranges between 729 to 1000+ times the speed of light, so in actuality it would take the Enterprise over 2000 years to get home, not 300. In order for the Enterprise to make it home from 2 million light years away in 300 years, it would have to travel at over 6666 times the speed of light. This is also further debunked by Star Trek: Voyager, which stated that it would take the USS Voyager (which has a higher top warp speed of Warp 9.975 compared to Enterprise's 9.6) over 75 years to traverse over 70,000 light years at its maximum warp. Even if Voyager and Enterprise had matching top speeds, it would still take Enterprise over 2140 years to get home from 2 million light years distance, and not 300 years as Geordi stated. See more »

Next Gen Finds It's Footing
17 March 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a personal highlight from a season with little to have a song and dance about. The Enterprise is thrown many lightyears from home by a mistake made by two guests called Kosinski and the Traveller. Interestingly, the actor who plays the Traveller was in the running to play Data. It's a superb episode which shows the strength of the main cast as well as displaying some great guest performances from the wonderfully arrogant Kosinski and the mysterious Traveller. There are also some rather splendid graphics here and there. However, the corniness of this first season as a whole shines through when Picard is forced to encourage his crew to "believe" their way out of it, but it is a forgivable little cringe.
