    Hi! I'm new to the fora; hope this is the right place. I was listening to Dr. Olsen's podcast on Star Trek, the second part of which dealt with the time travel episode in the original series named "The City on the Edge of Forever." Little wonder that it's one of their best episodes, since it...
