Re: TNG S5: Cause and Effect

Data message was ultimately somewhat unnecessary.

In every iteration through the loop, the crew was already changing their behavior and decisions based on the effects of "Deja-Vu".

If they had been stuck long enough, they would have, even if inadvertently, made a "butterfly effect" decision that would have let them escape.

Notice during the meetings where they discuss the possibility of reversing course to avoid the disaster. The first time it is Picard who says reversing course could be what causes the disaster. The next iteration, it is Riker who says this.

Eventually there could have been an iteration where they actually reversed course, or an iteration where Geordi finally fell off the catwalk and damaged the ship's engines forcing them to stop and avoid the disaster altogether.
