In order to catch the malicious time-shifting aliens, Picard and some crew-members use their knowledge of their time-travel technique to follow Data and the still unexperienced Guinan on Earth in the 19th century, where author Dr. Samuel Clemens' persistent inquisitive suspicion is on to them. When the aliens' time-shift back is tested, Samuel Clemens is transported back aboard with the crew and starts pondering the advances made in five centuries of human and intergalactic progress, while Data is only retrieved after decapitation. In the past, the aliens try to put up a defense... Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


Pamela Kosh (Mrs. Carmichael) would make an appearance in Star Trek: The Next Generation: All Good Things... (1994) as Jessel, a housekeeper to Data in the future. An equally cantankerous woman in another time travel adventure. See more »


Picard is changing lamps and is questioned by a doctor. The doctor responds, "There hasn't been an earthquake here in thirty years." This is set in August 1893, and according to the Virtual Museum of the City of San Francisco, on June 6, 1893, there was a "strong earthquake...and many men in downtown offices rushed to the streets." There were in fact dozens of earthquakes in the 30 years prior to 1893, including sizable earthquakes in 1892, 1890, 1889, 1888, 1885, 1883 (the strongest since 1868), and on with noticeable earthquakes nearly every year.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Hmm. Believe me, in the future, the tables will be turned.
Guinan: Do we become friends?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Oh - it goes far beyond friendship.

He was from the South. Why is he talking like cartoon coal miner?
