    KIRK: Strangely compelling, isn't it? To step through there and lose oneself in another world.

    SPOCK: I am a fool. My tricorder is capable of recording, even at this speed. I've missed taping centuries of living history which no man before has ever..

    (While Kirk and Spock speak, McCoy wakes up, and dashes towards the Guardian before he can be stopped)

    ^^Finishing:

    (McCoy leaps through the doughnut and the pictures stop and Kirk lands flat on his stomach from where he dived trying to stop McCoy)

    Kirk (cont.): Where is he?

    Guardian: He has passed into... what was.

    UHURA: Captain, I've lost contact with the ship. I was talking to them. Suddenly, it went dead. No static, just nothing.

    Scotty: Nothing wrong with the communicator, sir.

    Kirk: Earth's not there. At least, not the Earth we know. We're totally alone.

    (Kirk looks up into the now unfamiliar stars...)

    (Act Two)

    Captain's log, no stardate. For us, time does not exist. McCoy, back somewhere in the past, has effected a change in the course of time. All Earth history has been changed. There is no starship Enterprise. We have only one chance. We have asked the Guardian to show us Earth's history again. Spock and I will go back into time ourselves and attempt to set right what ever it was that McCoy changed.

    SPOCK: I was recording images at the time McCoy left. A rather barbaric period in your American history. I believe I can approximate just when to jump. Perhaps within a month of the correct time. A week, if we're fortunate.

    Kirk: Make sure we arrive before McCoy got there. It's vital we stop him before he does whatever it was that changed all history. Guardian, if we are successful...

    Guardian: Then you will be returned. It will be as though none of you had gone.

    Uhura: Captain, it seems impossible. Even if you were able to find the right date...
