Deep in space, the Enterprise comes across a Federation shuttle craft floating aimlessly and without power but exhibiting one human life sign aboard. They tow in the craft only to find it is one of their own, with, to their amazement, a duplicate, but unconscious, Captain Picard inside. Data and La Forge manage to restore power and determine that the craft comes from six hours into the future, with its shuttle log revealing the Enterprise' total destruction. As the Enterprise enters a dangerous vortex, and events in the recovered shuttle's log seem to be coming true, Picard and crew must find a way to break the time-warp cycle they seem to be in.
