* While the main premise of ''Series/SevenDays'' is using TimeTravel in order to SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong, the limited time frame of a week slightly limits this. Also, it's usually Frank, the chrononaut, who ends up saving the day anyway. Usually, though, it's the other characters who get this whenever he contacts them with the code word "Conundrum", which indicates that something really bad will have happened within the next week, necessitating the use of the Sphere. Two episodes involve other time travelers arriving from even farther in the future to warn of an upcoming disaster. The first one tries to prevent a global pandemic, resulting from a mutated cure for cancer. The second warns of a nuclear war resulting from the actions of a charismatic Muslim leader ([[spoiler:this turns out to be a case of MakeWrongWhatOnceWentRight, though, and the time traveler may not even be human]]).

* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' had a different take on this. Enterprise picks up a shuttle and is surprised to find it crewed by a future version of Captain Picard too incoherent to understand, while the shuttle's logs show Enterprise being destroyed. The crew then need to work out what sequence of events caused this, and avert it.

had a different take on this. Enterprise picks up a shuttle and is surprised to find it crewed by a future version of Captain Picard too incoherent to understand, while the shuttle's logs show Enterprise being destroyed. The crew then need to work out what sequence of events caused this, and avert it.it.
** "Cause and Effect" has another instance. The episode takes place inside a time loop involving the Enterprise's repeated destruction. At around the fifth pass, Data realizes this is because they go with his idea to avoid a ship going out of a temporal anomaly, and sends a message into the future. Through the next loop, the number "3" shows up in odd places. In the last minutes of the episode, the ship comes out of the anomaly again. Data looks at Riker's uniform collar, with three pins, and goes with his idea to depressurize the cargo bays, and the Enterprise survives.

* One episode of ''Series/{{Castle}}'' has a man who claims to be an agent from the future sent back to stop an assassination, probably a homage to ''Film/TheTerminator''. He comments on an upcoming 'energy war', though assures the the two leads that the good guys win. [[CaptainObvious Obvously]], he's labeled as delusional, [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane though the ending of the episode leaves it ambiguous]].

* In the two part episode of ''Series/PowerRangersSPD'' called "Messenger", the heroes pick up a radio transmission from the future that claims that Space Patrol Delta fell on the day the transmission was received. As revealed, it's because they encountered Devastation, their most powerful enemy yet. They would've lost as predicted, but thanks to the timely arrival of the SixthRanger, they defeated Devastation and changed the future.

* In one episode of {{Noein}}, after things start getting strange, Haruka asks her mother if she's ever encountered anything paranormal, and her mother mentions that her old house phone once rang, even though it was unplugged. At the end of the episode, the same unplugged phone rings again when Haruka's alone, so she picks it up, and realizes the person on the other side is her mother in the past. Haruka's mother is puzzled, while Haruka is very amused by the situation... and then her mother gets disconnected, and Haruka finds herself talking to ''[[MoodWhiplash herself from an alternate future.]]'' Her future self sounds so sad, and combined with the advice she offers, our Haruka is left quite shaken up by a vague hint at something ''terrible''.
