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

Trivia

The ambient noise level aboard the ship was increased in the alternate time-line. Consoles and displays were made more audible, the warp engines made a dull roar sound, intra-ship communication announcements increased, the doors made a "swoosh" sound reminiscent of the sound effect used in the original Star Trek (1966) series. Set lighting was also significantly changed and darkened. See more »

Goofs

After taking Tasha Yar's order Guinan never returns with it. As she leaves Guinan can be seen, apparently waiting tables. See more »

A Nice Episode With A Sizeble Plot Hole
10 December 2010 | by (next to waldo) – See all my reviews

It has been established that a starship can work on autopilot, even going back to the first series. If they knew all these people would have died, but have been bounced to the future, and they surmise that the ship will likely be destroyed shortly, why not just send it back WITHOUT THE CREW, set to execute basic instructions then self destruct? The Klingons will be friends again and no one has to die. But then we'd wouldn't have a whole lot of tension then would we? The fact they don't even discuss it is a huge plot hole. Of course it set up other interesting avenues for the series to eventually go down, so it works out for the best. As someone else said it would have been nice to see Worf as an enemy Klingon and perhaps even another character that would be seen as having been an ongoing character in that time line that we didn't even know and know we wouldn't see again (somewhat of a counterweight that this time line has a certain legitimacy of its own).
