"Yesterday's Enterprise" is the 63rd episode of the television series
Star Trek: The Next Generation. It was the 15th episode of the third
season, first airing in syndication the week of February 19, 1990. In
the story, the crew of the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-D) must decide
whether to send the time-traveling Enterprise-C back through a temporal
rift to its certain destruction, to prevent damaging changes to their
own timeline. The plot merged two story ideas, one featuring the crew of
the time-traveling ship and the other the return of Denise Crosby
(pictured), whose character had been killed in the show's first season.
Trent Christopher Ganino and Eric A. Stillwell rewrote the merged story
to focus on Whoopi Goldberg's character, Guinan. Filming lasted a week.
In syndication, "Yesterday's Enterprise" outperformed most of the third
season's episodes with a 13.1 Nielsen rating, the third-highest for the
series at the time. The episode is cited as a favorite by reviewers, and
is widely regarded as one of the best episodes of the series.
