A desperate Dr. “Bones” McCoy dives into a time portal and changes the course of human history, while Capt. Kirk and Mr. Spock are right behind, bent on reversing the damage. So begins the aired version of one of the most popular episodes of the original “Star Trek” television series. It’s also the most controversial. For the first time, science fiction maverick Harlan Ellison’s first draft (and very different!) “Star Trek” script is performed in its entirety, with ace voice talents John Rubinstein and Scott Brick gleefully taking on the major roles. Reading his extensive introductory essay, the outspoken Ellison re-voices his battles with “Star Trek” creator Gene Roddenberry over the direction of the story. Both Ellison’s original script and the aired “edited” version received major awards. So, listen and decide which version you prefer. It’s “Star Trek” fandom gold.
