Time has stopped for the crew of the Enterprise in an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation that aired on this day in television history.
“Timescape” is the 25th episode of the 6th season of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Written by Brannon Braga, it first aired on June 14th, 1993.
Captain Picard, Counselor Troi, Data, and Geordi La Forge are returning from a conference when they can’t locate the Enteprise. When they do, they find it frozen in time, apparently a victim of a Romulan attack. But, when they board the ship–with its crew stuck like bugs in amber–they discover there’s even more to this unusual situation than what it seems.
The episode features a Runabout, a staple vessel from the then-contemporary series, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Adam Nimoy, son of Leonard Nimoy (Spock), directs the episode.
