LAFORGE: All stopped, sir.
Picard: Yes, but where is this place?
(Lights are dancing in a blue scene)
Data: "Where none have gone before."
Everyone looks at the viewscreen, wondering what the %^#* they're looking at.
Captain's Log: 41263.3 Instead of returning to our own galaxy, the Enterprise has gone forward to a place in our universe which is uncharted and unknown. Our present location puts us at over a billion light years from our galaxy.
Picard: Data, you have the helm, I'll be in Engineering.
Picard leaves in a turbolift.
(There is a grunting sound, and Worf turns to see what looks like a hairy pig with a horn and wicked looking spines)
YAR: What is it?
^ Tasha Yar's non-time travel, non-alternate timeline Line by Line debut.
WORF: (in a rare moment of glee and happiness) It is a Klingon Targ! From my home!
TASHA: You're telling us that's a kitty cat?
Worf: Yes, I suppose you could call it that.
The targ vanishes, Worf steps back, freaked out.
Tasha hears a cat meow and a small cat lands on the tactical station
In the turbolift, Picard thinks as the turbolift stops.
He starts to exit, then seeing that he's arrived at deep space at warp speed! He hangs onto the doors for dear life. He tosses himself back in. The turbolift arrives at another stop, he exits, very cautiously.
(Tasha is fondling the cat)
TASHA: You darling, what are you doing here?
(Then she's back on her home planet, and a rape gang is after her)
TASHA: Now, run. This isn't a safe place at all.
(Someone puts a hand on her shoulder)
GEORDI: What's wrong, Tasha? You look frightened to death.
TASHA: I was, I was. This is crazy. I was at the colony where I grew up, being chased by a rape gang...
LaForge: Are you all right? Well, you're safe now.
(Elsewhere on board - a group in period costume is playing Mozart Eine Kliene Nachtmusik, except for one Starfleet violinist)
(Picard encounters a man and woman running from something)
CREWMAN: Captain! Captain, we need help.
Picard: What's wrong?
FIRST CREWMEMBER: Don't you see what's following us?!
(They carry on running)
(Picard passes an open door and sees a ballerina in a golden tutu pirouetting)
Picard: Ensign, what are you doing?
(Her tutu becomes her uniform again)
(The violinist is sitting at a table, having a meal)
(Picard turns a corner and meets an elderly woman sitting at a tea table)
MAMAN: (french accent) You look tense, Jean-Luc. Come and have a cup of tea.
MAMAN: I'll make it good and strong, the way you like it. We will have a nice long talk.
Picard: This can't be. You've been..
