Instead, he returns to the ''Enterprise''-D to retrieve the logs of the original [[HMS Bounty|''Bounty'']]'s trip to the [[20th century]], planning to reproduce the incident to save his captain. Guinan becomes concerned about his intentions, prompting the ''Enterprise'' to pursue his shuttle.

Arriving more or less when he means to, Scott beams Kirk from the [[USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-B)|''Enterprise''-B]] just before he would be pulled into the Nexus. At that instant, the ''Enterprise''-B disappears, replaced by a pair of [[Borg cube]]s. Similarly, when the ''Enterprise''-D arrives a few days later, its crew find themselves in a timeline overrun by [[Borg]].
