Star Trek Fan Collective - Time Travel
Frequently Bought Together

One could quibble with the episode selection. Because the Fan Collectives were compiled by vote from fans, Voyager's series finale "Endgame" was included even though it was also on Fan Collective: Borg. It would have been nice to remove that duplicate and substitute the acclaimed DS9 two-parter "Past Tense," which would have been a better representation of that series than "Little Green Men" (in which the Ferengi travel to Roswell) and "Tribble-ations," both of which are deserving selections but considerably lighter in tone than the series as a whole. Also, Enterprise isn't represented at all. The only bonus features are new text commentaries on three episodes by Michael Okuda and Denise Okuda. --David Horiuchi

Disc One includes:
Tomorrow is Yesterday, ST: The Original Series, Season 1. Capt. Kirk and crew are thrown into a time warp that transports the Enterprise into the past. They find themselves orbiting the Earth in the 1960s and are spotted by U.S. radar and labeled a UFO. They end up transporting an Air Force fighter pilot captain aboard then have to figure out how to return him safely and get back to their own time without affecting the past.
The City on the Edge of Forever, ST: The Original Series, Season 1. This episode is considered by many to be one of the best, if not the best, of the entire three-year run of the series. Capt. Kirk and Spock travel back in time to a large Earth city during the Depression through an ancient Time Portal in an attempt to find Dr. McCoy, who has gone mad after accidentally self-injecting a powerful drug. McCoy, who went through the Time Portal first, altered the past erasing all that came afterward. So, there is no Enterprise, no Starfleet, and no way to restore reality unless Kirk and Spock can stop McCoy in "time."
Yesterday's Enterprise, ST: Next Generation, Season 3. The U.S.S.Read more ›
The Original Series has two of its finest episodes included; "The City on the Edge of Forever" and "Tomorrow is Yesterday". In the former Dr. McCoy uses a time portal to change the past on Earth and allow Germany to win WWII. Kirk and McCoy must make things right or their world won't exist. "City on the Edge of Forever" won a Writer's Guild Award for Harlan Ellison's original script and a Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation for the episode. In "Tomorrow is Yesterday" the Enterprise is thrown back in time to the 1960's from a slingshot effect. They are spotted, photographed and recorded by the US military. In order to prevent contamination of the timeline Kirk and Spock must remove the evidence but, in the process, create more evidence of their presence. Combining action, suspense and whimsy is no small feat and D.C. Fontana's terrific script does all of these very well indeed.
"The Next Generation" checks in with a number of terrific episodes. The best of the lot is "Yesterday's Enterprise". Picard and his crew encounter an Enterprise from 22 years ago when it passes through a rift in space/time. When the ship comes through it changes the present so that Picard and the Federation are at war with the Klingons.Read more ›
"Star Trek" Episode 21, "Tomorrow Is Yesterday" finds the "Enterprise" going back in time, courtesy of the gravitational pull of a black hole, to the 1960s. Kirk rescues an Air Force pilot, Captain John Christopher, he cannot let return with his knowledge of the future. But Christopher has to return to have a son who will be a famous space explorer (Warp 4).
"Star Trek" Episode 28, "The City on the Edge of Forever" is the most famous "Star Trek" episode. McCoy goes back in time through the Guardian of Forever and changes history. Kirk and Spock follow to set things right, ending up in the U.S. during the Great Depression. The focal point is Edith Keeler, a social worker. McCoy saved her life and Edith led a peace movement that delayed U.S. involvement in World War II, allowing Hitler to create atomic weapons first and win the war. Kirk is in love with Edith, but she must die (Warp 5).
"STNG" Episode 63, "Yesterday's Enterprise" is the "Enterprise-C," which comes through a temporal rift and changes everything changes. The "Enterprise-D" is now a ship of war, fighting a losing war with the Klingon Empire, so Worf is gone and Tasha Yar is back. Guinan knows something is wrong and has to convince Picard that the correct timeline must be restored no matter what (Warp 5).
"STNG" Episode 118, "Cause and Effect" finds the "Enterprise" trapped in a time loop ending with the starship exploding.Read more ›
