Spock concludes that the Pacific must have been transported, though no such transport technology is known. 30,000 light years away, a human, a Klingon, and two aliens are in command of Pacific. After recovering from a bad transport, Scotty and Chekov are forced to make repairs. Back on the Enterprise, Gary Seven and Isis (Assignment: Earth) materialize. Seven, now a senior supervisor, explains his mission to Kirk while Isis flirts with Spock. The Pacific's hijackers are rebel supervisors who plan to use the protomatter weapon against the aliens who trained them as intervention specialists. The aliens, called the Aegis, did away with weapons long ago and will be defenseless against the protomatter weapon. To convince Kirk that the Enterprise must help him, Seven takes him, along with Spock and McCoy to an Aegis facility where thousands of years back and forth in time are monitored. Kirk is apprehensive about the Aegis policy of intervention but he is reminded of his own questionable actions regarding the Prime Directive and agrees to cooperate. Meanwhile, Scotty believes he can link the Pacific's transporters with the time-space transporter used by the rebel supervisors. Seven transports the Enterprise into the vicinity of Pacific. The rebels demand surrender of the Enterprise. Kirk refuses and demands the return of Pacific and its crew. A battle ensues. The rebels fire the protomatter weapon at Enterprise.

Nightmares
On the planet of the Guardian of Forever, Kirk has nightmares about a Klingon killing his son. Spock and David determine that the flow of time has been altered in the Klingons' past. They record the original progression of events and the altered timeline to study. Spock informs Kirk that in the timeline they wish to reestablish, David has been murdered by Klingons. Kirk considers stranding David on the planet, where he will be insulated from changes in time. Lt. Worf is troubled by the changes that will come. Klingons are devoted to the arts and sciences, not the art of war. Ambassador Kor (Errand of Mercy) examines the time records with Spock. They learn that the assassination of a pivotal figure in Klingon history never took place. Kirk volunteers to lead the team which will try to restore the original timeline. Going with him are Kor, Admiral Jaricus, McCoy, Sulu, Uhura, and Lt. Worf. Stardate 8516

The Federation team finds the leader of the assasination plot but he and his henchmen are killed by a modern Klingon explosive device.

Seems like old times
Kirk and Sulu are brought before Baraga to tell their story. Baraga kills the would-be sabateur and goes ahead with plans to use his plane in an air show. The renegade Klingons from the future worry that their plan has failed until Baraga's plane explodes during the air show. They capture Kirk and his team, with plans to dispose of them. Kirk learns that the renagades, along with like-minded Romulans, attempted to alter history so that the Federation and the Klingon Empire would both be weak, peace-loving societies, and ripe for conquest. At the Guardian of Forever, Spock confirms that the timeline has been restored, but since Kirk has not returned, he refuses to allow the Romulans to leave. After further consideration, he arrests the Romulans on suspicion of conspiracy to alter time. Ambassador Kor convinces the Klingon Imperial High Command that the situation still requires action. When the renegade Klingons learn that Baraga has survived, they beam back to their bird-of-prey with the Federation team, vowing another attempt to change history. Before they can kill Kirk, a battlecruiser hails them and orders their surrender. After a brief battle, the renegades are captured and Kirk's team boards the battlecruiser which slingshots around the Klingon sun to the present. Lt. Worf learns that he is a defense attorney in this timeline and plans to defend the renegades. Kor bids Kirk farewell and wonders if their common experiences and memories of the altered timeline will affect their future actions. Stardate 8545.1
