Review:

This intriguing episode from the seventh and last season of the series focuses on Worf (Michael Dorn), who has become trapped in a quantum fissure where numerous, alternate universes intersect. Bouncing uncontrollably from one reality to another, Worf variously finds himself married to Deanna Troi (Marina Sirtis), promoted to First Officer under the command of Captain Riker (Jonathan Frakes), and working with Cardassian crewmates while fending off warlike Bajorans. There's also a version of the Enterprise that did not survive being picked apart by the Borg--for that matter, neither did Captain Picard (Patrick Stewart) make it through the Borg experience alive. The whole show is a field day of what-ifs, and Dorn is excellent at conveying a sense of helplessness, albeit Klingon-style. The Trek faithful had lots of mixed feelings about the suggested Worf-Troi romance--a response the show's producers clearly anticipated by tweaking the relationship all the more just before closing credits. --Tom Keogh

From the Back Cover:

Returning victorious from the bat'telh competition, Worf (Micheal Dorn) becomes dizzy and learns that he received a concussion during the tournament, though he has no memory of it. When he checks his trophy he discovers that rather than winning the event, he came in ninth. As his memory lapses increase, it appears that reality is changing around him though no one else seems to notice.

When Data (Brent Spiner) searches for an explanation, he notices a quantum flux in Worf's subatomic particles which makes him asynchronous with normal matter. In essence, this Worf is from a parallel universe - and now they must find a way to send him back to protect the space-time continuum!
