4The Enterprise detects time distortions emanating from an uninhabited planet. Investigating, they discover that the effect is being caused by an ancient artefact on the planet, a remnant of a long-vanished civilisation. McCoy, suffering the effects of an accidental drug overdose, travels to 1930s Earth via the portal, disrupting Earth's history. Kirk and Spock are able to use the device to travel back and correct the damage.4
