Re: Cause and Effect - why didn't they...

There is actually a much, much simpler solution: Just change course! Someone (Riker?) actually suggested this in one of the meetings but this was being dismissed, since that change in course might just be what leads to the collision and brings them into the loop in the first place. The first time into the loop however, when they hadnīt been in it previously, they didnīt have this meeting (they only started to have it after they noticed the strange things) and thus no reason to change course! So changing course at that point would definitely have averted the collision ... but would also have deprived us of a very fun episode

EDIT:
@JirinPanthosa

I didnīt see your post in time, guess Iīll have to type quicker!
