Bruce McGill (Braxton) previously played a similar role in the film Timecop (1994), in which he was the supervisor of a team of agents charged with restoring and protecting the timeline. See more »


Captain Braxton recalls the events from Star Trek: Voyager: Future's End: Part 1, in which he was exiled in 20th century Earth for 30 years. However, this time-line was ultimately corrected by the Voyager crew and not by Braxton, as he claims to Seven. In fact, Captain Braxton explained at the end of Star Trek: Voyager: Future's End: Part 2 that he had no memory of the exile on Earth because it was part of another time-line. See more »

I usually don't like temporal episodes, but this one is kind of fun.
28 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I usually do not like Trek episodes about temporal distortions and the like. However, there have been a few exceptional ones--such as "Star Trek: Deep Space 9" and their "Trouble and Tribble-ations" episode. While this one isn't nearly as good, it is a good episode involving time distortions and time travel.

The show consists of Seven of Nine being recruited by time cops of the 29th century. They know that SOMEONE is going to sabotage Voyager with a temporal device--meaning that someone is playing games with time and is traveling through time without permission.

The show is good but it's made a bit better because it has a nice sense of humor and never takes itself very seriously. Worth seeing.
