More craptastic stuff involving the space-time continuum.
30 November 2014 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I hate episodes like this one, though I should note that "Timescape" has a very respectable score on IMDb. Shows about time and space anomalies never leave me satisfied.

A runabout with several crew members is away from the ship to some boring conference. In the meantime, the Enterprise responds to a distress call from a Romulan ship--something which worked out BADLY in the past on this show. When the runabout returns with these folks who attended the conference, they see the Enterprise and the Romulan ship in what appears to be a space battle...and they and the crew inside the ships are frozen in time! What gives? And, how can they right things?

Not only did I think that this episode was amazingly static, but I also thought the ending was awfully flat and anticlimactic. Not a terrible episode but not a very good one either.
