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would have a mandatory retirement age (and that it would be 75 years old in the 23rd century) seems a little silly and outdated, but the episode succeeds because of its heart.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