Time travel pod (26th century)

The time travel pod

Temporal distortion

The time-pod returns to the 22nd century.

A time-pod was a small vessel, approximately five meters in length, which had the ability to travel through time. Originating from the 26th century, the pod was constructed of a plasticized tritanium mesh, and its interior was accessed through a palm scanner on the outside. Used by time travelers, it produced a characteristic temporal distortion when traveling through time.

Inside the pod.

One of these pods was used by a time traveler to travel back in time to the 22nd century, where he had the misfortune of encountering Berlinghoff Rasmussen, an unsuccessful and unscrupulous inventor from New Jersey. Stealing the time-pod, Rasmussen traveled forward in time to the year 2368, and made contact with the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D. Passing himself off as an historian from the future, he attempted to appropriate various pieces of technology, including the android Lieutenant Commander Data, planning to return to his own time where he would pass the various technologies off as his own inventions. Eventually, Rasmussen's plot was discovered, and he was taken into custody. As Rasmussen watched, the preprogrammed time-pod automatically returned to the 22nd century, stranding Rasmussen in the future. (TNG: "A Matter of Time")

Background informationEdit

ApocryphaEdit

In an alternate timeline during the 23rd century, the time pod ended up in Vandar the Stone's collection of time machines as shown in Issue 5 of Star Trek - Legion of Super-Heroes.
