After recovering from a bad transport, Scotty and Chekov are forced to make repairs. Back on the Enterprise, Gary Seven and Isis ("Assignment: Earth") materialize. Seven, now a senior supervisor, explains his mission to Kirk while Isis flirts with Spock. The Pacific's hijackers are rebel supervisors who plan to use the protomatter weapon against the aliens who trained them as intervention specialists.

Attacked by a pursuing Romulan ship, Saavik refuses to surrender and fights until the Romulans retreat. Erickson continues to try and persuade Saavik that his is the right way. When they detect an unexpected Federation ship, Saavik realizes that Erickson has programmed a phony vessel configuration signal and the ship is really Romulan.

Scotty, in command of the Enterprise, must try and keep a Klingon battle cruiser from interfering with the first contact mission. During the quest, Kirk and the others meet and battle beings and beasts from their past, including a Mugatu, a Gorn, and a salt creature. When Klingons arrive, our heroes are chased into a mountain cave where they find a massive and sophisticated computer installation. The computer, built by the Atyansa's ancestors half a million years ago, appears as a beautiful woman, and welcomes the Federation officers. Their arrival was predicted long ago and made part of Atyansa mythology to facilitate their arrival. The computer installation is failing and the Federation is asked to help restore the system for use by the present day Atyansa. Klingons briefly interrupt, annoying the computer.

The Romulans insist that theirs is the true reality. Enterprise Science Officer Lt. Worf (ST VI: TUC) has no answers and recommends an investigation. The Federation agrees and invites the Romulans to Earth with diplomatic status. At Starfleet Academy, Spock is asked to assist with the investigation. He recommends visiting the Guardian of Forever ("The City on the Edge of Forever") to learn whether or not time has been altered. (Howard Weinstein; Rod Whigham, Arne Starr; Whigham, Carlos Garzon) 54 Nov 93 Nightmares, 2 On the planet of the Guardian of Forever, Kirk has nightmares about a Klingon killing his son. Spock and David determine that the flow of time has been altered in the Klingons' past. They record the original progression of events and the altered timeline to study. Spock informs Kirk that in the timeline they wish to reestablish, David has been murdered by Klingons. Kirk considers stranding David on the planet, where he will be insulated from changes in time. Lt. Worf is troubled by the changes that will come. Klingons are devoted to the arts and sciences, not the art of war. Ambassador Kor ("Errand of Mercy") examines the time records with Spock. They learn that the assassination of a pivotal figure in Klingon history never took place. Kirk volunteers to lead the team which will try to restore the original timeline. Going with him are Kor, Admiral Jaricus, McCoy, Sulu, Uhura, and Lt. Worf.

While Spock monitors the Guardian of Forever, Kirk and his team arrive in the Klingon homeworld's past to begin searching for Khartan and the palace guards planning to murder him. Kirk picks a fight with a guard and is arrested. He meets Khartan and is impressed by his intellect and spirituality, making his mission even more difficult. The Federation team finds the leader of the assasination plot but he and his henchmen are killed by a modern Klingon explosive device. Having failed to carry out their mission to ensure Khartan's death, Worf regretfully takes it upon himself to set matters straight, killing Khartan with a phaser blast. Upon returning to their own time, Kirk's team learns that time still has not been set right. (Howard Weinstein; Rob Davis, Arne Starr; Rod Whigham, Carlos Garzon) 56 Jan 94 Call back yesterday, 4 Their mission to correct the timeline a failure, Spock concludes that more than one event in time has been tampered with. Further study indicates that the assassination of the brutal Klingon leader Baraga should never have occurred. Kor stays behind to continue studying the Guardian of Forever's records. The Romulan commander considers the Guardian's potential as a weapon while Kirk, McCoy, Uhura, Sulu and Worf go back in time once more. Kirk and Sulu get jobs as airplane mechanics to be near the site of Baraga's murder. Klingons from the future identify Kirk and his team and begin revising their plans. Baraga learns of the two new and very skilled mechanics, and makes them his own.

(Howard Weinstein; Rob Davis, Arne Starr; Rod Whigham, Carlos Garzon) 57 Feb 94 Seems like old times, 5 Kirk and Sulu are brought before Baraga to tell their story. Baraga kills the would-be sabateur and goes ahead with plans to use his plane in an air show. The renegade Klingons from the future worry that their plan has failed until Baraga's plane explodes during the air show. They capture Kirk and his team, with plans to dispose of them. Kirk learns that the renagades, along with like-minded Romulans, attempted to alter history so that the Federation and the Klingon Empire would both be weak, peace-loving societies, and ripe for conquest. At the Guardian of Forever, Spock confirms that the timeline has been restored, but since Kirk has not returned, he refuses to allow the Romulans to leave. After further consideration, he arrests the Romulans on suspicion of conspiracy to alter time. Ambassador Kor convinces the Klingon Imperial High Command that the situation still requires action. When the renegade Klingons learn that Baraga has survived, they beam back to their bird-of-prey with the Federation team, vowing another attempt to change history. Before they can kill Kirk, a battlecruiser hails them and orders their surrender. After a brief battle, the renegades are captured and Kirk's team boards the battlecruiser which slingshots around the Klingon sun to the present. Lt. Worf learns that he is a defense attorney in this timeline and plans to defend the renegades. Kor bids Kirk farewell and wonders if their common experiences and memories of the altered timeline will affect their future actions. (Howard Weinstein; Rob Davis, Arne Starr; Rod Whigham, Carlos Garzon) 58 Mar 94 No compromise, 1 While visiting Captain Sulu on Excelsior, Chekov learns that the only woman he ever proposed to, Julia Crandall, has been killed. In conversation with Sulu and Uhura, Chekov reminisces about Julia and his first mission as navigator of the Enterprise.

(Howard Weinstein; Carlos Garzon; Jerome Moore) 61 Jul 94 Door in the cage Spock travels to Talos IV to offer Captain Christopher Pike (now 70 years old, "The Menagerie") the chance of a new life. Upon arrival, Spock meets a young boy who recognizes him. Pike appears and identifies the boy as his son, Philip, and invites Spock to dinner. Pike, Vina, and Philip appear to be reclaiming the surface of Talos IV, cultivating vegetables, and beginning to make a dent in the ecological hell that they live in.
