We're all painfully aware of your AI's limitations, Captain. That's why we only plan to maintain the quantum interface for another forty eight hours or so. Well within your ship's safety limitations.
Well, I can't argue with his math.

During an experiment using the black hole in which Andromeda was trapped Dylan ponders the past. Rev Bem suggests that he sends a message to his fiancée into the black hole; there may be no chance that anybody will receive it but just sending it could be cathartic. Amazingly the message is received three hundred years in the past; Dylan's fiancée is part of a rescue mission trying to rescue Andromeda. She replies and Dylan starts planning a way in which they might be reunited without changing history or stopping his plans to recreate the System's Commonwealth. If that weren't enough Andromeda is attacked and the nature of the experiments mean her reactions are much slower than usual.
This was a decent enough episode although I thought it was a bit early for a second story involving time travel. It is also becoming apparent that despite having a relatively small main cast not all of them will be appearing in every episode; in the previous episode Harper was away now Trance was nowhere to be seen. This isn't a real problem as it means there is more time for those that remain; here that is obviously Dylan who must choose between the woman he loves and his dream of restoring the commonwealth. Harper also takes a major part of the story with his entertainingly unsuccessful attempts to demonstrate a working teleportation system. The cast are pretty solid; as Dylan's fiancée is played by Kevin Sorbo's wife Sam Sorbo it isn't surprising that they have a good chemistry. Gordon Michael Woolvett is also on good form as Harper. Away from the main story we learn some interesting facts about the Commonwealth notably that Earth was invited to join rather than being a founder member. Overall this episode was entertaining even if it wasn't the best to date.
