Storyline

The DS9 crew discovers a small colony on a remote world that was originally populated by them 200 years earlier due to a time-travel accident with the Defiant. The current colonists lives depend on making sure that accident happens again, even though they've now forwarned the crew that it will happen. Each crew member needs to decide if they are willing to give up their lives on DS9 in order to preserve the history of the colony. Written by Gholamite

An Emotional Episode
29 August 2019 | by dafoatSee all my reviews

The contrivances of the time travel plot are a bit forced. But then, most time travel stories have something in them that doesn't quite add up. But this episode still got to me. The scene where the crew helps their descendants plant their crop is really touching. It reminded me of a quote that is often attributed to Martin Luther. "Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree."
