    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would have a mandatory retirement age (and that it would be 75 years old in the 23rd century) seems a little silly and outdated, but the episode succeeds because of its heart.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

    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

    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
