Storyline

The Enterprise is observing a celestial anomaly, something akin to a wormhole when a starship appears having traveled through it. To everyone's surprise, the ship is an earlier version of the Enterprise, the Enterprise-C commanded by Captain Rachel Garrett. The instant the Enterprise-C arrives however, history is changed. Captain Picard and his Enterprise are battle weary with the Federation having been at war with the Klingon Empire for 20 years. Lt. Tasha Yar is alive with Lt. Worf nowhere to be found. Guinan knows something is wrong and Picard realizes that the Enterprise-C must return to its own time and place if their time line is to be restored. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

In contrast to Captain's log and Stardates, the alternate timeline Picard records a Military log using "combat dates." However, an Okudagram on Picard's desk, seen shortly before Yar enters to ask for a transfer to the Enterprise-C, shows "Captain's log: Captain J-L Picard." See more »

Goofs

Captain Picard is stunned to hear that children should be on the Enterprise. But Wesley is still part of the crew in the alternate time line, although he was only on the Enterprise as a family member to begin with. Then again, it is possible that because of wartime, he may have had a quicker Academy education and been officially transferred onto the Enterprise as a junior officer. This is borne out by the fact that Wesley is wearing a full Ensign's uniform in Command red, rather than his Acting Ensign's "uniform" as seen in the unchanged time line. See more »

Quotes

Guinan: Every fiber in my being says this is a mistake. I can't explain it to myself, so I can't explain it to you. I only know that I'm right.

A Nice Episode With A Sizeble Plot Hole
10 December 2010 | by toolkienSee all my reviews

It has been established that a starship can work on autopilot, even going back to the first series. If they knew all these people would have died, but have been bounced to the future, and they surmise that the ship will likely be destroyed shortly, why not just send it back WITHOUT THE CREW, set to execute basic instructions then self destruct? The Klingons will be friends again and no one has to die. But then we'd wouldn't have a whole lot of tension then would we? The fact they don't even discuss it is a huge plot hole. Of course it set up other interesting avenues for the series to eventually go down, so it works out for the best. As someone else said it would have been nice to see Worf as an enemy Klingon and perhaps even another character that would be seen as having been an ongoing character in that time line that we didn't even know and know we wouldn't see again (somewhat of a counterweight that this time line has a certain legitimacy of its own).
