  • Correcting history...

    Another great episode that makes one think...what could have happened. Dr. McCoy, under the delusion of a powerful drug, goes back in time and changes history so that the time period he came from no longer exists. Kirk and Spock go back to find him and end up in the Great Depression of 1930. There they meet Edith Keeler who turns out to be the focal point in time they are looking for. Unfortunately, in order for history to be made right, she must die in a freak car accident in which McCoy orginally saves her from which is what changed history.
