PICARD: I can't accept that.
DATA: You must, sir. Our comparisons show it to be completely accurate.
LAFORGE: And I calculate that at maximum warp, sir, it would take over three hundred years to get home.
PICARD: Captain's log, stardate 41263.2. This will be a rather unusual log entry, assuming Starfleet ever receives it. As I have already informed my crew, a phenomenal surge of power during a warp speed experiment has sent our starship hurtling out of our own galaxy, past another, taking us over two million seven hundred thousand light years in a few minutes.
LAFORGE: Message on this has been transmitted to Starfleet, sir.
DATA: Which, traveling subspace, they should receive in fifty-one years, ten months, nine weeks, sixteen days...
PICARD: Mister Data!
(Kosinski, Riker and Argyle enter)
KOSINSKI: Captain Picard, I presume?
Riker: We're still trying to determine what happened, sir.
Kozinski: The truth is Captain, I made a mistake. A wonderful, incredible mistake!
Picard: Just explain what brought us here.
Kozinski: As the power grew, I applied the energy asymptomatically. I anticipated some tilling, but it didn't occur. Now that was my error, using the Bessel functions at the beginning.
Picard: What... what is he saying, Number One?
Riker: To tell the truth, Sir, it sounds like nonsense to me, but considering...
Picard: Considering... where we are.... we must assume it isn't.
In Engineering, The Traveler is ill.
Wesley: Can I do something to help? I can call my mother, she's a Doctor.
Traveler: No, there's nothing she can do. I need to rest. I've been away too long.
Wesley: What happened to you, is it part of what happened to the ship?
Traveler: Please believe me, I mean no harm to this vessel or those in it.
