The Enterprise narrowly avoids a collision with a black hole and is thrown back to Earth in the 20th century, where they must find a way back and erase any trace of their presence. Matters become complicated when they rescue an Air Force pilot and cannot return him without changing history...but if he disappears that will change history as well.

This was kind of a one-step-forwards-two-steps-back kind of episode feminism-wise. We got the nice "A woman?" "A crewman" exchange between Kirk and Christopher, but then all the silliness with the ship's computer. Ah well.

Fun episode overall, especially liked the scenes of Kirk being interrogated. His little grimace as they toss the phaser, his practically breaking the fourth wall with that look to camera.

I know you can't hear me, "oh yeah!", because I'm a *visitor from the future*, but that sexy trombone music negated any possible feminist gains in that scene.

Sensor report: since WHEN do you need a communicator to be beamed up?
