After being accidentally injected with a powerful psychotropic medicine, Dr. McCoy beams down to a mysterious planet that is home to a powerful being that allows him to travel back in time. Kirk and Spock beam down to stop him, but find that history has been in some way altered. They follow McCoy back to Earth during the 1930s. There they must find McCoy and undo what damage he has done. Complicating matters is a beautiful and enlightened social worker that Kirk immediately falls for. Will Kirk be able to reset history and what will it cost him to do so?

Hey, Guardian, can we get color on this thing?

This is hands down, one of the best hours of Star Trek, maybe even one of the best hours of television ever. A strong science fiction story is bolstered by top notch writing and heart-wrenching performances by main and guest cast alike. This got an emphatic 5 from both of us for a well deserved total of 10. Enjoy the podcast and the episode.
