I must've been on a bathroom break during Zarabeth's conversation about Zor Kahn. Now I see what you guys are saying.
And yeah, Metryq, the atavachron could've been around for a long time. Heck, who is to say Zarabeth didn't come from a time hundreds of years prior to Kirk and company showing up? But, no...I think she mentioned Mr. Atoz..then again, this is the same universe where Bele was chasing Lokai for 50,000 years, so who knows!
