This time, "Non Sequitur" strikes me as a reworking of "Parallels" (alias "Schrodinger's Klingon"), which saw Worf jumping between alternate realities as a result of a shuttle accident.

 Logical Fallacies and the Art of Debate
For these reasons, it is generally bad form to scream "non sequitur" just because your opposition has failed to anticipate every counterargument you might make.
The best time to point out a non sequitur is when your opposition is trying to construct a chain of causation (A leads to B leads to C, etc.) without justifying each step in the chain.
For each step in the chain they fail to justify, point out the non sequitur, so that it is obvious by the end that the alleged chain of causation is tenuous and implausible.
