  • Captain Picard is reunited with a former love when the Enterprise investigates a research outpost that is causing a series of time distortions.

    This is a somewhat surreal episode of TNG that has some shades of the future TV show "Lost". However, most of the episode is dull and not very memorable. As the title implies, "We'll Always Have Paris" is supposed to be reminiscent of "Casablanca", but that's not really a style that Star Trek does very well. Michelle Phillips, the last surviving member of the 1960s group "The Mamas and the Papas", guest stars as Picard's old love interest, and she's okay, but there's not much chemistry between the two. The most interesting thing about the episode is the time anomaly, an abstract idea that the writers would deal with more effectively in future episodes.
