"10. Rosewell Refugees
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine – “Little Green Men”
A sabotaged warp core and an illegal load of kemocite didn’t bode well for Quark, Rom, and Nog, as the dangerous combination propelled their shuttle to Roswell, New Mexico in the year 1947. Captured by the United States military, the Ferengi family, as well as the Changeling stowaway Odo, needed to evade the authorities and utilize the radiation from a nearby nuclear test to ignite their remaining kemocite, thus returning their vessel to the 24th century. Who knew that the Roswell incident had been motivated by profit?

09. Temporal Psychosis
Star Trek: Voyager – “Relativity”
Recruited by a 29th century Federation timeship to locate a weapon placed aboard U.S.S. Voyager, Seven of Nine endured various temporal transports and run-ins with crew members before she had actually met them. In a shocking twist, the culprit turned out to be Captain Braxton, who commanded the timeship which had enlisted Seven in the first place! Unfortunately for future Braxton, temporal psychosis had taken place and prompted him to seek revenge on Captain Janeway.

08. 21 Century Trials
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine – “Past Tense”
A transporter mishap sent Captain Sisko, Doctor Bashir, and Jadzia Dax back to a tumultuous period in the early 21 century, shortly before the Bell Riots brough the era’s poverty-stricken sanctuary districts into the spotlight. When Gabriel Bell died prior to the event, Sisko needed to take on Bell’s role and try to resolve the uprising in a peaceful manner. Everything ultimately transpired as history had recorded it, though files now displayed Sisko’s image in texts related to Bell’s deeds.

07. History Never Forgets
Star Trek: The Next Generation – “Yesterday’s Enterprise”
A battle between the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC 1701-C and Romulan starships opened a temporal rift that sent the Federation vessel into the future, an event which altered history, ignited a Federation-Klingon war, and resulted in a rendezvous with the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC 1701-D. Captain Picard realized that dispatching the Enterprise-C back through the anomaly, thus allowing them to defend a Klingon colony and prevent the war from ever starting, was the only solution. Sadly, the Ambassador-class ship and its crew knew that they were likely sacrificing themselves to preserve history and avert a devastating war.
