Star Trek has investigated the potential outcomes and results of time travel in its five decades of presence at various times. It has sent individuals from Starfleet to the far off past, the far future, and all over in the middle. However, which of these stories are the best? Well, we think we have the answers.
10. Yesterday’s Enterprise – Star Trek: TNG (3.15)
Alternative timelines are a staple of time travel classification. However, they typically get jogged out as a peril to business. And this must be repaired no matter what. Yesterday’s Enterprise is one of only a handful couple of stories that permits us to invest a lot of energy in the “wrong” course of events. It further makes us consider whether the inhabitants really ought to repair it!
The episode starts with the Enterprise-C being pulled through a fleeting rift amidst an immensely essential fight. The course of events is broken. As a result, the Klingon and Federation peace settlement never happened, the Enterprise-D is currently a warship battling a losing fight against the Klingons. Worf is gone and Tasha Yar is alive once more.
Obviously, the timeline is repaired finally. However, the blend of courses of events, some stunning team deaths and the opportunity to witness the earlier unseen Enterprise-C in real life made this episode a fan-top pick.
9. E² – Star Trek: Enterprise (3.21)
Season 3 of Enterprise may have been tormented by the brain numbingly dreadful Xindi storyline. It had burdensome terrorism analogues and snail’s pace execution. However, there were two or three gems to be found in the pile of crap. One such gem was E², the scene in which the Enterprise experiences a variant of itself from a possible future.
It’s conspicuous from the beginning that it’s a theoretical rendition of the future that we’re seeing. It is one in which the Enterprise is a generational boat staffed by the offspring of its present group. There are great laughs like the security officer Malcolm Reed finding, sadly, that his future self is unmarried and single. Furthermore, there is also the recommendation of how a starship attempting to stay off-grid for many decades can support itself.
