What happens if someone from the past shows up in the enlightened society of the Federation and we know that he committed crimes by "today's" standards?
If a time traveler from the past had committed an act that was legal in his own culture at the time, the Federation ought to have no jurisdiction in the matter -- assuming the Federation is at least as enlightened as the United States Constitution on the matter of ex post facto.

And something worse happened, didn't it? They cancelled Star Trek and put on lost in Space or whatever.
Lost in Space started before Star Trek and was canceled a year before Star Trek was.
And furthermore, it was on a different network.
