    While escorting Commodore Robert April to Babel, the Enterprise is sucked into an alternate universe where the young are born old, and the old get younger

    By GameraTrekkie, Jan 16, 2011

    Anything about an alternate universe is always interesting, and it is no exception for The Counter-Clock Incident. This universe that they go to is the exact opposite of this universe. The nigh sky is white with black stars, people talk backwards and the older in age you are, the younger you become. Needless to say, this makes for a great story. Especially since it features Robert April, the first captain of the USS Enterprise. Naturally, he is happy that he is getting younger since he was on his way to retire, but soon discovers that he prefers his own age after all. A great story that did a wonderful job at ending this sadly short lived 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
