    KIRK: A planet circling that far left star in Orion's belt. See?

    As mentioned in the site's episode transcript, "Not that you can actually see any stars in the night sky above the Brooklyn Bridge." ;)

    (Kirk enters the room, where Spock is reviewing histories)

    Kirk: February 23rd, 1936. 6 years from now.

    The Headline reads "FDR Confers with Slum-Area Angel"

    The President and Edith Keeler conferred for some time today.

    Spocks contraption goes up in flames

    How bad?

    SPOCK: Bad enough.

    SPOCK: It would seem unlikely, Jim. A few moments ago, I read a 1930 newspaper article.

    SPOCK: Or Captain, Edith Keeler will die this year. I saw her obituary. Some sort of traffic accident.

    Kirk: You must be mistaken. They both can't be true.

    Spock: Captain, Edith Keeler is the focal point in time we've been looking for, the point that both we and Doctor McCoy have been drawn to.

    KIRK: She has two possible futures then, and depending on whether she lives or dies, all of history will be changed. And McCoy...
