    While transporting the first Captain of the Enterprise to his retirement ceremony, Kirk and company plunge into a "counter-clockwise" universe.

    This series finale is quite special, and a great way to end the five year mission. The idea that Starfleet would have a mandatory retirement age (and that it would be 75 years old in the 23rd century) seems a little silly and outdated, but the episode succeeds because of its heart. And the wink to Gene Roddenberry by including Captain April, the first Commander of the Enterprise, is cute. (When Roddenberry first created Star Trek, he proposed it as the Captain's name.) Also included is some great artwork, including the look of the counter-clockwise universe. All in all, it's a great ending to the series.moreless

    I have watched this episode some many times. I just love the way they bring Robert April into the show. That was something that they could not do in the original series. I just think that the whole primes of the show is great. The ship is on it way to a starbase for Commadore Robert April's retirement. On the way they come across this ship that is moving at great speed right into the heart of a nova. Well the Enterprise to the rescue. In the process of tring to "rescue" this ship they get caught in the gravity of the nova and get taken to another universe where eveything works in revires. As the crew try to think of a way home they start to notice that everyone is getting younger. They find a way home and everyone is returned to normal and after Captain Kirk tells Starfleet of Commadore April's deeds that go above and beyond duty April does not have to retire. Just a great episode.moreless
