Crusher: (offscreen) Jean-Luc, What's going on?
Picard: It happened again.
Crusher: A Time shift?
Riker: What happened?
Picard: It’s still a little vague, but I can remember more this time. It seems that every time I shift periods I can retain more memory. At first it appeared that I was in the future, years from now; and then I was in the past just before our first mission.
Riker: What is it?
Dr. Crusher: I just scanned his temporal lobe and compared it with the scan I preformed just a few minutes before. There’s a 13% increase in the acetylcholine of the hippocampus. Within a matter of minutes, you have accumulated over 2 days worth of memories.
Later in the Observation Lounge
Picard: Counselor, do you remember when I first came aboard the Enterprise?
Picard: What happened after the welcoming ceremony?
Deanna: There was a reception in 10 Foreword. I introduced you to Worf and the other senior officers.
Picard: Do you have any memory of my calling a Red Alert in Spacedock? Do you remember Starfleet diverting us from Farpoint to the Neutral Zone to investigate a Spatial Anomaly?
Data: It would appear there is a discontinuity between the time periods you described. Events in one time period would seem to have no impact on the other two.
Riker: Yet in the past and present there is a report of the same anomaly in the Devron System. I find it hard to believe that’s a coincidence.
Picard: For all I know, I might find the same thing in the future.
LaForge: Perhaps the anomaly is a temporal disturbance of some kind?
Crusher: How is all this related to your timeshifting?
Picard: These are all very important question, and perhaps I will find answers to them in the past. But now we have a potentially dangerous threat from the Romulans. I want all departments to present a battle readiness report to me at 0800 hours tomorrow morning. Dismissed.
