They are a collection of unusual discs, which play the planet's history and (to their surprise) allow their users to travel into the past through the atavachron, a time machine, into the periods each was studying on disc. The crew travels unprepared, McCoy and Spock find themselves locked in a frozen ice age 5,000 years ago, where Spock reverts to the barbaric age of the Vulcans. He becomes very easily agitated, and is intensely attracted to the political prisoner Zarabeth (Mariette Hartley), who enjoys getting company but tells them return is impossible. Kirk arrives in a Cromwellian period, where he's arrested and suspected of witchcraft. He soon realizes the magistrate must be a time traveler like him, and ... Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

When Spock tries to use his phaser to warm a boulder at the base of the ice cliff, it doesn't work - presumably because phasers didn't exist in that time period. But when he lays McCoy out in Zarabeth's cave and examines him, the doctor's medical tricorder seems to work just fine. See more »

Quotes

Dr. McCoy: Are you trying to kill me, Spock? Is that what you really want? Think; what are you feeling? Rage, jealousy? Have you ever had those feelings before?
Mr. Spock: This is impossible... Impossible. I am a Vulcan.
Dr. McCoy: The Vulcan you knew won't exist for another five thousand years. Think, man. What's happening on your planet right now, this very moment?
Mr. Spock: My ancestors are barbarians. Warlike barbarians.
Dr. McCoy: Who nearly killed themselves off with their own passions. Spock, you're reverting into your own ancestors five ...

Enjoyable, but of course flawed....
9 February 2018 | by Brucey_DSee all my reviews

This is one of the better S3 episodes for sure and is well worth watching.

However as with any time travel plot, there are problems; here, any sense of impending doom ought to be tempered by the fact that they have at their disposal a machine that can put you back to where you were a few hours ago and give you enough time to sort things out, surely?

Anyway, I happily watched this episode several times without worrying overly about that and will probably happily watch it again. Shades of 'One Million Years BC' I am a sucker for a fur bikini.... BTW Mr A-to-Z (geddit?) may have been the inspiration for the shopkeeper in 'Mr Benn', who knows...?
