Episode propaganda

The Enterprise makes way toward a planet known as Penthara IV, where a massive asteroid has struck an unpopulated continent. Fearing that the resulting dust cloud could lead to a devastating ice age like the one that occurred on Earth in the late 21st century, the crew hopes to find a way to counteract the cloud's effects. As they travel toward the planet a bright flash appears on the bridge and a strange man materialises before the crew. The man reveals that he is Professor Berlingoff Rasmussen (Matt Frewer), a historian from late 26th century Earth, who has travelled from the future to study the Enterprise. Although the crew is suspicious of Rasmussen, his presence arouses their interest in the future, but Picard insists they refrain from questioning their guest so they don't end up changing the future.
