In various [[time-travel]]ling incidents, the time line becomes partially altered.  History changes, but certain characters still remember the original timeline.  In extreme cases, the time line changes so that the people in question would never have been born yet still exist, and are flying a ship that was never built in the new timeline.  The most straight-forward explanation for this conundrum is that time-travelling moves those engaging in it to a parallel universe, and the original timeline remains unchanged.

In the [[Star Trek: The Next Generation|TNG]] episode "Parallels", we observe many such parallel universes where past events occurred slightly differently. We are told that the number of parallel universes is potentially infinite.  The existence of these universes lends further credence to the time-travel theory above.<ref>[[TNG]]: Parallels</ref>
