As the Enterprise attempts to return home after its visit to 1960s Earth (in the ST:TOS episode Tomorrow is Yesterday), it overshoots by twenty years and comes face to face with the Excelsior. When the crew meets their older selves, it sets off tears in the space time continuum and the universe starts to unravel around them. The only way to repair the fabric of time is to harness the power of The Guardian of Forever.

The crew of the Enterprise is sent to oversee the final stages of a planet’s acceptance into the Federation after nearly seventy years of isolation. When a crude old fashioned nuclear engine explodes under one of the planet’s buildings, Spock blames himself for the loss of nearly twenty percent of the crew, and must learn to live with the consequences of his command decisions.

Writer: Mike W. Barr / Artist: Jeong Mo Yang
After the Enterprise is attacked by missiles fired from a seemingly dead planet, random acts of violence breakout between the male and female members of the crew. The cause is traced to two survivors from the dead planet, the reaninmated male and female co-rulers who destroyed the planet through civil war. The alien leaders split the crew into two factions until they face each other in a final conflict, the women in the saucer section and the men in the engineering section. Kirk and McCoy manage to transport the two faction leaders down to the planet surface where they kill each other in hand to hand combat. With the aliens dead, their influence disappears and the crew is reunited.
