Brett Cullen guest stars as Deral, a resident of the newly discovered dimension-shifting planet Meridian. While trying to stabilize Meridian's path through space -- and, hopefully to save it from ultimately "shifting" out of existence -- Dax falls in love with Deral. Alas, he is predestined to return to his planet, whereupon he will vanish into another dimension for 60 years. Scripted by Hilary Bader and Evan Carlos Somers from a story by Mark Gehred-O'Connell, "Meridian" was directed by former Next Generation regular Jonathan Frakes and first aired November 19, 1994.
