  • Arriving from the past, Spock realizes he doesn't exist in the future. He then returns to his youth to prevent his untimely death.

    Automatically, I knew this episode would be great when I discovered it was written by DC Fontana, arguably the best of all of the Trek writers. I thought right. We really do get a good look into Spock's past and the sad story about his pet sehlat. For those who know, the worst part of the episode is the battle with the Le-Matya. The Le-Matya's roar was Godzilla's roar. It's not that it was similar, it was the same exact roar. But, that is not a big deal compared to the genuinely fantastic story. This is the episode that Gene Roddenberry liked the most out of all of them, and it really is a great episode.
