Storyline

The Enterprise is observing a celestial anomaly, something akin to a wormhole when a starship appears having traveled through it. To everyone's surprise, the ship is an earlier version of the Enterprise, the Enterprise-C commanded by Captain Rachel Garrett. The instant the Enterprise-C arrives however, history is changed. Captain Picard and his Enterprise are battle weary with the Federation having been at war with the Klingon Empire for 20 years. Lt. Tasha Yar is alive with Lt. Worf nowhere to be found. Guinan knows something is wrong and Picard realizes that the Enterprise-C must return to its own time and place if their time line is to be restored. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

When Tasha Yar joins the Enterprise C crew, she is still wearing her communicator from the Enterprise D. This would result technology being taken back to the time line of the Enterprise C, and the battle with the Romulans and this risk of the technology falling into their hands. Picard made it clear that no technology from the Enterprise D time line should go back with the Enterprise C. See more »

Quotes

Lt. Commander Data: There is a high degree of probability that the temporal rift is symmetrical, Captain.
Capt. Picard: Then what would happen if the Enterprise-C were to fly back through it?
Lt. Commander Data: Back, sir? The Enterprise-C would emerge in her own time, at almost the same instant she left.
Capt. Picard: Right in the middle of the battle with the Romulans.
Lt. Commander Data: Yes, sir.
Capt. Picard: Is there any possibility she could survive?
Lt. Commander Data: None, sir.
Capt. Picard: Then sending them back would be a death sentence.

an interesting "what if"
15 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have often thought that it would have been great had the writers of this episode added one simple detail: what if the Enterprise C or the Enterprise D had dropped a log recorder buoy as the rift were closing and before the time line was corrected? There have been precedents of this happening in past episodes, In the original series, "The Cage," the reason Capt Pike investigates a planet is because they find a ships recorder floating in space. In other episodes, Capt Kirk has copies of the ships log jettisoned when he felt they were soon to be destroyed.

In this scenario, since both Enterprises' know that the future in which they came to meet was not supposed to take place, either one of them could have left a record of their existence in THAT reality. This would have come in especially handy since in future episodes Capt pichard is confronted by someone who is a direct result of that momentary confluence of the two time periods from this episode.
