The convergence of Enterprise's inverse tachyon pulses in all three continuities initially form the anomaly that threatens humanity. It's composed of "anti-time".

But when the future Enterprise-D, having already done the deed, returned a few hours later to scan for the anomaly (as the "aged" Picard convinces them to do) it helped create, the crew should have found nothing. Since it was formed hours ago and grows stronger in the past, there would be nothing to detect when they returned, because in the present and the future, it's not there yet ... er, I mean anymore.

The entire plot collapses.

Whoops.

I agree that's a huge flaw in the story.

You would have thought someone on the writing staff would have caught that.

there is obviously a flaw, just like the mirror episodes drive me insane when their counterparts all amazingly in especially the ds9 episodes just happens to be stationed on the same station in the mirror universe.
Remember sisko did not want the position originally on ds9, so why is sisko around the station for example in the mirror universe and likewise other characters, but I try to over look that much like the all good things episodes and just take them for what they are.

I think I was vaguely aware of it when watching the first time through, but squelched my misgivings because it was TNG's finale, and I didn't want to be aware of such a fuck-up.

I just watched it again two days ago.

This time, I went, "Hey..."
