 While you're trekking  -  there are actually tons of mindbending Star
Trek stories, set in parallel universes, temporal distortions, spacial
anomalies, you name it. For example, one TNG episode tells the story of
Dr. Crusher, trapped - without her knowledge - in some alternative
reality after an experiment goes awry.  Another story line has Picard
encounter an alien probe; he breaks down and is out for a few minutes.
During this time, he lives an entire life on an endangered planet whose
dying population sends these probes into space to be remembered.
And the feature length movie "ST-Generations" employs the "nexus," in
which alternate lives can be lived.
