Re: Jim Kirk, "Superman"

When I was 14 years old, between 1976 and 1977, I was in the hospital for a serious injury. While there I was given a gift of an anthology of Star Trek short stories. I can remember some of the cover but, big surprise, that part that I do remember is a picture of the USS Enterprise. I know, how uncommon. What I remember, in particular, of one of the stories is that, like many, someone, Kirk in this case, had been stranded at some point in the past - 20th century Earth. He had been committed to a mental institution and the orderlies had nicknamed him "Superman" for his great strenght - He was apparently often violent.

Does anyone have a handle on the name of that anthology? I do remember enjoying it a great deal and it would be great to read it again if it's available.

Sounds not unlike the DS9 Benny storyline, where Sisko was a patient in 20th century earth, having visions of a 24th century space station.
