In February 1990, over 18 years ago, the 63rd epsiode of Star Trek: The Next Generation aired, titled Yesterday’s Enterprise. In Yesterday’s Enterprise a time rift is opened and the Enterprise C emerges 22 years after the date of its disappearance. Upon emerging, the timeline completely changes, and the crew of Enterprise D become a military crew, in the middle of a decades long war agains the Klingons. As Guinan’s unique abilities lead Picard to believe the arrival of the Enterprise C has somehow created an altered reality, it is determined the only way to avert the war against the Klingons is to send the Enterprise C back to where she came – in the middle of a losing battle where the ship and her crew will be destroyed. This episode has a 9.5 out of 10 rating on TV.com’s Summary of Yesterday’s Enterprise and for good reason, it is one of the better Next Generation episodes. I watched it again yesterday more than ten years since I last saw it, and loved it just as much. If you’ve never seen this episode grab it now, it is well worth a watch.
