  • Sans one problem, this episode is a classic.

    Here's the problem: If Spock devolves into how his people were 5,000 years ago - why didn't McCoy devolve as well?

    Why not Kirk?

    What makes Spock so special?

    Ignore this, and you've got one heck of a well written and acted installment that deserves TO be a classic, in the top 15 even.

    Well, there is one other point: The Enterprise finds no life, they beam down, and find Mr. Atoz. A bunch of them - all of which are androids... except for one. Why didn't he register as a life form? Obviously a minor nitpick, and readily forgiven given the verve and quality of the piece. Even far bigger potential concerns were addressed: E.g. why Zarabeth could not go back and Spock/McCoy could. (and why they had to go back at the same time.) The writer, Margaret Armen, does an A+ job with this story's content, even despite these two points that can easily be forgiven. As such makes "All Our Yesterdays" worth seeing.
