Star Trek: The Original Series Season 1

Episode 28 "The City on the Edge of Forever"

Stardate 3134.0: While investigating a time disturbance above an uncharted planet, Sulu is rendered unconscious when his overloaded console bursts into flames. McCoy hurries to the bridge and administers a few drops of cordrazine which immediately stabilizes the helmsman's heart flutter. Suddenly, the Enterprise lurches and McCoy is accidentally injected with a large quantity of the drug. In his cordrazine induced frenzy, McCoy exits the bridge and manages to beam himself down to the planet below. After beaming down to find the doctor, Kirk and the landing party discover the object causing the time disturbances, the Guardian of Forever, which can show any point of time in galactic history. While watching Earth's history, McCoy leaps through the portal and as a result drastically changes history. The Enterprise suddenly vanishes, leaving the landing party stranded and speculating if even Earth itself still exists. With no other alternative, Kirk asks the Guardian to replay the history they were viewing when McCoy jumped through the portal. At the point just before McCoy went through, Kirk and Spock jump back into Earth's past, into 1930's New York. After nearly being arrested for stealing clothes, they manage to find shelter and in the process meet Edith Keeler, a social worker who runs the homeless shelter where they are staying. While they wait for McCoy to appear, Kirk becomes quite enamored with Keeler whose insight into the future of mankind is full of optimism and hope. Spock, meanwhile, is able to tap into the memory banks of his tricorder and finds that in order to set things right again Edith Keeler must die. If McCoy is allowed to save her life, Keeler will eventually start a pacifist movement which will delay the entry of the U.S. into WWII and give the Nazis enough time to develop the atomic bomb first and conquer the world. When McCoy is finally reunited with his friends Kirk prevents him from moving Keeler out of the way of an oncoming truck, and she dies. With their history restored Spock, McCoy, and a devastated Kirk return through the time portal and beam back to the Enterprise
