This would overlap Christopher and the sergeant with their own past worldlines, and Spock had had the inspired insight that beaming them into their own past bodies, superposing the same particles in two different quantum states, would cause those states to recollapse into a single individual apiece, with the quantum information incompatible with their reality—the experiences the two men had had aboard the Enterprise—erased from their memories. The possibilities for exploration, for discovery. It's shaping up to be a fun story. I leave them and their mess, whatever it turns out to be, in your capable hands. Still, I stuck with the original plan to approach it primarily as a Kirk-era novel. It's difficult to get clear readings, but a mysterious inactive vessel lies at the heart of the anomaly, one outfitted with some sort of temporal drive disrupting space-time and subspace. The episode instilled in Bennett a love for both space travel and science fiction.

Perhaps with some minor injuries consistent with ejecting from a crash? Then again, if this pans out, I may have all the time in the universe. Like a black hole, but different somehow. Past Me: So what do the next six months have in store for me? It would be foolish to read this chain of events as evidence of destiny.

But in a universe where history as we know it could be wiped out at any moment by time warriors from the future only the most disciplined, obsessive, and unimaginative government employees have what it takes to face the existential uncertainty of it all on a daily basis and still stay sane enough to do their jobs. Had it not been formed already by the initial accident, I would have had no way of creating it. In a universe where history as we know it could be wiped out at any moment, only the most disciplined, obsessive, and unimaginative government employees have what it takes to face the existential uncertainty of it all: Federation investigators Lucsly and Dulmur.

No one should have to live through that. Political loyalty was something he knew how to bargain and barter for, but he knew it came and went as expediency demanded. Whatever Kirk had felt, he had still placed his duty first and done what he needed to do. The Guardian claimed to be unable to alter the speed at which it displayed the past, but by asking it to restart and jumping at the correct moment, the captain and I were able to arrive shortly before Doctor McCoy.
