The ideas of alternate timelines and multiverses are fantastically combined in "Parallels." Worf goes through a quantum fissure on his return from a bat'leth tournament causing him to quantum flux between several parallel universes. It is only through the matching of his RNA that allows him to be returned to his correct universe.
In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Richard Marquez, Lee Hutchison, and Amy Nelson discuss the seventh season episode "Parallels." We identify the different sets and uniforms used to differentiate between parallel universes, the exponential nature of parallel universes based on choices made, and what choices warrant a break from the timeline. We also comment on the validity of the Worf/Troi relationship introduced so late in the series.
