. . .I've noticed that the same stories keep popping up. They start in TOS and go onward. . .
. . .The Time Repeating Episode:
Two or more crew members get sucked into an anomly or other time looping finonina and they have to figure out how to get out!
I don't remember this ever happening in TOS, unless you're somehow including "The City on the Edge of Forever" in this category.
Do you mean the word "phenomena"?
Yeah you are right, I think this story starts in TNG with the Typhon Expanse in "Cause and Effect". There's a Voyager episode with Chakotay and Janeway on a shuttle mission that's pretty much the same episode!
Yes I meant phenomena, I just missed that typo!
