I never understood all the fanfare for this episode beyond the awesome battle(for the effects of the time) at the end. When you stop and think about the whole premise of the episode, it makes no sense at all.
How does it make no sense?
It's much easier to understand if you think of the entire story from the Enterprise-C crew's POV.
They get into a big battle with the Romulans, they accidently go into a future that they were were never destoryed in, they find out since they vanished the Federation and Klingon Empire is at war.
Also the space battle is NOT the only reason why this episode is well liked.
We got a great Tasha story, amazing production values, good music, the changed characters because of time shift, and good acting from everyone. It felt like a movie at times.
