Ok, Lemme start by saying that I've always liked the way they use all that "technical babble" in Star Trek. I'm one of the people who often get into discussions on "how this works" or "what happens when you go into a black hole" and stuff like that. Sooooooooo...

In the episode "All good things..." (which yes, I've watched around 352 times), the anomoly appears in the future, getting bigger in the past. If that is the case, how did it form in the future? If the anomoly did occur "backwards" in time, how did it appear later on in the future? Speculations are appreciated, any sarcastic or cynical remarks will be met with a slow and painful death. If you don't understand the question, a bunch of :( or :eek: will do.

I was created in the future and grew over time. It's time is backwards compared to the rest of the universe. It seems as straightfoward as such a thing can be.

Well, to my, somewhat addled mind, when Picard was sent pissing around in time, he kept creating these universes, and when he fired the last beam on board the Enterprise X in a universe where it had already been done twice, this action caused the formation of the temporal thing, but this then caused a new timeline to be formed which allowed the temporal anomaly to be absent at one moment and there and growing backwards the next. Or something.

Well wasn't it started in the future, but then grew as you went into the past. Or perhaps a better way of putting it is it started really, really big, possibly at the start of the universe, and then got smaller over time untill at some point in the future it vanished.

One thing I've learnde about time travel in any universe out side of Dr. Who, Don't ask, you will jest prove a paradox. this counts in real life also. Star Trek is jest one more example of this.

Didn't the warp core breach of the Pasteur have something to do with it, as well?

Lousy science vessels. Plenty of warships blew up in the Dominion war, and they never caused any temporal thingamadoohickeys.

war > peace
