Re: Question About "The Chimes at Midnight"
I think the simplest hypothesis would be that upon realizing they would need to travel downtime to Earth's pre-warp era, Thelin stayed back with the rest of the landing party and did not enter the Guardian.
Or maybe McCoy ended up traveling to a different world's past where Thelin could have gone safely.
Heck, maybe the Guardian sent them downtime to an equivalent point in Andor's
history, and it was Kirk
who had to disguise himself!
This dream must end, this world must know:
We all depend on the beast below.
