Puzzled, the Enterprise follows an enigmatic trail of distress messages left behind by the vessel of reputed time-space-continuum researcher Dr. Paul Manheim, who dropped from sight years ago during his last experiment. His latest trial goes terribly wrong, causing a time-distorting ripple to spread from a binary star system, tapping into unimaginable energy that already affects the Enterprise crew. To prevent the galaxy being ripped open, the process must be reversed, although gravely (maybe fatally) injured Manheim can only give unreliable instructions to Data. Jean-Luc Picard is largely focused on Paul's younger wife Jenice, once Jean-Luc's fiancée, whom he dumped in Paris for his Starfleet dream.
