When the Enterprise trespasses into uncharted territory, Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Scott and Chekov are transported to a location that has all the trappings of the American Old West. It's October 26, 1881, and Kirk soon realizes they are in Tombstone, Arizona, on the day of the famed gunfight at the OK Corral between the Clanton gang and the Earps - with Kirk and company representing the ill-fated Clantons. If history is to be repeated, they will fairly all be killed so must use whatever resources availed to them to defeat the threat and survive. The solution, however - and the only way of escape - lies within them. Written by

For the incomplete mock-up of the Sheriff's office, the sign with the word "Sheriff" on it is written in the exact same font as the opening credits to the series (the F's have the same slant in the center). See more
The gunfight at the O K Corral has many inaccuracies, but that's because the Melkotian created the town based on Captain Kirk's imperfect subconscious knowledge of history. The gunfight actually ensued at 3:00 p.m., not 5:00 p.m. Virgil Earp was the town marshal of Tombstone at the time of the Gunfight at the O K Corral, not Wyatt Earp
. Morgan Earp was Virgil's deputy, and Wyatt and Doc Holliday were deputized the day of the gunfight. Their original intent was to disarm the Clantons and McLaureys. Doc Holliday did not practice dentistry in Tombstone. Perhaps most importantly, Ike Clanton (Captain Kirk) was not killed in the gunfight, but lived for six years afterwards and, in fact, killed Morgan Earp and arranged to have Virgil Earp ambushed and crippled.

Well, you shoulda warned me sooner, Mr. Spock. Fire away.
