Re: TNG S2: Time Squared

It annoys me that the writers made a feasible sounding scenario for a time-loop, however they messed up in that they allowed for Picard to escape it. A time-loop is ever repeating so it would be physically impossible for it to ever end. The loop will always end the same way and begin the same way, and to anyone stuck in the loop they would appear to have free will over their actions but they would be repeating exactly what happened to everyone before them down to the sub atomic level. no matter what anyone does the cannot change the future; this is even mentioned by Riker to the Captain. If Picard decided to go have an adventure on the holo deck instead of attending to the situation, then something would have happened that would then out him in a time-loop. What ever he does, it will always end with him in the shuttle-craft, starting the loop over. I'm slightly annoyed that there is barely a single show that attempts paradox free time travel without messing it up, but I respect the writers for trying.
