Storyline

The Enterprise shuttlecraft, carrying Kirk, Spock, Dr. McCoy and critically ill Federation Ambassador Nancy Hedford, encounters a mysterious energy cloud which pulls them down to planet Gamma Canaris N. There they meet a castaway, a young man who purports to be Zefram Cochrane, inventor of the Warp Drive over 100 years ago. In history he had lived to be 80 years of age before disappearing somewhere in space. Apparently the same energy cloud which brought the shuttlecraft to the planet also found and rejuvenated Cochrane, making him effectively immortal. Unless Kirk can get themselves released soon, the ambassador, without vital medical treatment, will die. Written by Clive Wilson

Trivia

According to director Ralph Senensky, the pattern on Hedford's scarf looking like the energy field of the Companion was not scripted. He had based the shot of the Companion looking at Cochrane through the scarf on a similar scene that he filmed for The F.B.I. (1965). See more »

Goofs

Just after the first time that Kirk uses the universal translator to speak with The Companion, Kirk, Spock, and McCoy turn to walk into Cochrane's shelter, which they were standing less than 10 feet away from, while Cochrane is at least 50 yards away. When the shot switches to the interior, Kirk, Spock, and McCoy are seen coming through the entry door, immediately followed by Cochrane, even though Cochrane would have been 30-45 seconds away at normal walking speed.

Interesting episode for those who were fans of both "Father Knows Best," and the actor Christopher George.
10 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a fan of the TV series "Father Knows Best," I am always amused and grateful to watch the "Andersons" play in other venues (movies, TV series, etc.). Seeing Elinor Donahue in this role was nice. I do agree with one of the other commenters that her character was a bit less than thrilling, but, I guess when you consider that the character had a fatal disease, it almost made sense for her to be as she was. It then made more sense when she teamed with Glenn Corbett. When I first saw Glenn Corbett, I swore I watching Christopher George. There are some significant physical differences. The voice and many of the mannerisms are almost identical, as well as the facial features and hair.
