Synopsis: Picard runs into his future self and rips him a new one even though he’s catatonic and defenseless. Oh, and Enterprise esplodes.
Memory Alpha Summary: You built a time machine…out of a funnel cloud?
Review: This is our first time loop entry in the series, and it’s a solid start, if a little plodding, what with the middle mostly consisting of endless talking. Stewart really does a fantastic job at realistically portraying the emotions that would likely show themselves if someone bumped into their future self. Also, the fatalistic nature of the time loop is foreboding and watching the crew gradually feel helpless is a nice touch. The conclusion seems of a bit of a cop out, and never really explained, which hurts this episode a bit.
