Storyline

Although Riker considers maverick federation scientist Kosinski's project to vastly boost the propulsion absurd, Picard obeys the admiralty orders. Fascinated, Wesley sits with his alien assistant and wins his confidence. the results surpass even 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

Trivia

Argyle was referred to by Riker as one of the Enterprise's chief engineers. This would indicate that the ship had a team of chief engineers as opposed to a single person holding the position. In all likelihood, the concept was referred to due to the expectation of a turnover of actors playing the part of the chief engineer, as the role was not played by a regular cast member during the first season.

Goofs

Kosinski's uniform insignia (whatever it indicates) is filly silver when he transports to Enterprise. Once he reaches engineering it is now mostly black with just a narrow silver strip, similar to the 3rd black pip of Lt Commanders. See more »

Quotes

The Traveler: You do understand, don't you, that thought is the basis of all reality. The energy of thought, to put in your terms, is very powerful.

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.
