Indeed, given Assignemnt Earth was originally pitched as a seperate series completely unconnected to Star Trek, I doubt anyone had time travel in mind at all.
The intro narration, from the original Assignment: Earth
standalone pilot script...
In the hands of one man...
could rest the future of all mankind.
His name... Gary Seven...
born in the year 2319 A.D.
The only survivor of Earth's attempt
to send a man back through time to today.
Assignment... fight an enemy
who is already here, trying to destroy us.
If he fails... there'll be no tomorrow!
