The Enterprise discovers a rift in space that reveals a familiar-looking starship - its predecessor, the U.S.S. Enterprise 1701-C, believed to have been destroyed in battle over twenty years ago! The ship's captain (Tricia O'Neil) tells Picard (Patrick Stewart) that the Enterprise-C was under attack from four Romulan Warbirds when it broke through the rift. But Guinan (Whoopi Goldberg) is bothered by things she can't explain: why the Federation is presently engaged in a bloody and senseless war with the Klingon Empire, and why she doesn't seem to know her ship's security chief, Tasha Yar (Denise Crosby). Convinced that the space rift has changed the course of history, Guinan pleads with Picard to send the Enterprise-C back through the rift to face its destiny.

But will Picard give such an order, knowing that it will result in the destruction of the Enterprise-C and it's crew?

Red Alert! Red Alert! The Enterprise is trapped in time and doomed to eternal destruction.

When the starship enters the Typhon Expanse, a previously unexplored region of space, Dr. Crusher (Gates McFadden) encounters a feeling of déjà vu while playing cards. Then in Sickbay, she examines a dizzy Geordi (LeVar Burton) and experiences the same sensation again. Later, there is a problem on the bridge and the main propulsion systems collapse. Suddenly, an older starship appears out of the Expanse on a collision course. Evasive maneuvers fail and the two ships collide and explode!

Instantly, the officers are playing poker again. Soon, the entire crew realizes they are stuck in a causality loop, endlessly repeating the same fragment of time. Now they must figure out a way to escape the loop or be doomed to eternal destruction. Guest starring Kelsey Grammer as Captain Bateson.
