** Similarly, ''Literature/StarTrekTheQContinum'' has Q take Picard on a journey through ''Q's'' life in order to show Picard why he should abandon his current mission. The trip through time is interspersed with chapters detailing what The Enterprise is going through under Richer's command in Picard's absence.

** ''Literature/StarTrekDestiny'' also bounces back and forth between multiple time frames. The bulk of the story revolves around events that occur just after [[Series/StarTrekEnterprise Enterprise's]] time, [[TheSlowPath events 1,000 years before that]], and events 10,000 years before that in the Delta Quadrant. Then would jump to the late 2300s ''Literature/StarTrekTitan'' time frame to unfold how those past events brought about the "present day" crisis.

** SelfDemonstrating/DocScratch explains these transitions with the concept of "circumstantial simultaneity", which states events happening in different times and places throughout the existence are intrinsically connected.

** This might be justified in his case. (Or [[MagicAIsMagicA as justified as any]] TimeTravel trope is, at least...) At various times it has been a rule in the DC universe, and the DINIVerse might use this as well, that the same person can't travel through time to a period in which another version of that person exists. If they do, the time-traveling version is [[IntangibleTimeTravel intangible]] and invisible. But Vandal Savage is immortal and exists for ''all'' of humanity's history and future. This makes direct time travel impossible for him (although there are ways to do whatever he wants indirectly), so MentalTimeTravel is the only option, and a phenomenon he's prepared for and used to, and no doubt there are other tricks that could be used. This rule is explicitly stated by Savage in "Hereafter", but is ignored in other parts of the DCAU, including two episodes of ''WesternAnimation/StaticShock'' and the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' two-parter "The Once and Future Thing".

* In the third and final series of ''AshesToAshes'', Alex's voiceover on the opening titles mentions time running out for her to get back home (i.e. to the present day). This isn't explained in the slightest, though, since neither world, now or then, is in any imminent danger whatsoever.

* In ''Theatre/HarryPotterAndTheCursedChild'', Hermione holds an emergency meeting where she warns that a witch has gone into the past and may change history at any moment. No one seems to realize that if this were so, time should already have changed, they all act like the past event is something that hasn't happened yet.

* ''Film/TimeRunner'': The movie repeatedly cuts back and forth between the BadFuture where the aliens have invaded Earth and the past where a time traveller is [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong trying to prevent all this]].
