  • The Enterprise discovers a society that resembles earth of the twentieth century with an ancient Rome slant.

    This is another one of those parallel earth stories with a sci fi twist. In this case, the planet is just like earth, except the Roman Empire has continued into the equivalent of the twentieth century. Gene Roddenberry and Gene Cone, the two heavyweights of the original Star Trek series, cowrote it, and with their understanding of Trek, the result is a solid, entertaining second season episode. It focuses on Kirk, Spock, and Bones, and has some lovely moments between them as Kirk attempts to deal with this backwards planet that keeps placing obstacles in his path. William Smithers guest stars as Captain Marik and gives a nice performance.
