    It's a title with the word yesterday in it. :shrug:
    In one sense, Tomorrow is Yesterday and All Our Yesterdays belong together as time-travel eps, with Return to Tomorrow the odd one out.
    Then it should be called "All Their Yesterdays."
    I agree with you on the vagueness of Return to Tomorrow but Tomorrow is Yesterday is as plain as day to me. They've traveled back in time; so what would have been a day in their 23rd century past (yesterday, poetically) is now a day in their 20th century future (tomorrow, poetically.)

    I suppose you could say "RETURN TO TOMORROW" directly relates to Sargon and Thalassa. They were essentially in oblivion for centuries, and after the events of the episode, they return to that state, but more permanently. A kind of 'tomorrow'.

    I'm just spitballing, honestly... it's the rare franchise title that just makes you scratch your head.

    @Farscape One Or maybe, all the promises (warp drive the size walnuts, etc) that Sargon, et. al, represented are returned to some future discovery date?

    No, It's just a stupidly vague title.

    I always liked Kirk's speech in that one.

    Ah, yes. "Whisk... is our business!", says the chef.

    Oh, wait. You mean Kirk's "Risk... is our business!"

    Yes, that was a good speech.

    Yes and in addition I like McCoy standing up for his principles against Thalassa's body snatching plans.

    I don't know about Return To Tomorrow. I did appreciate a lot of the humor in the episode ("Even a Vulcan cannot know the unknown..."), and the speeches, but I feel like the plot wasn't developed enough.

    The vague ones are the best! If not a little hokey, I'll agree... Worse, how might audiences respond if the makers called that episode "Sargon Drops the Ball"...? :crazy:
