When Kirk and Sulu vanish into thin air from the bridge of the Enterprise, Spock sends a landing party to the planet below to locate them. What they find is an 18th century castle and a rather foppish man, Trelane, who seems to know a great deal about the Earth - even if it is the wrong time period. If truth be told, Trelane acts like a spoiled little boy and it's obvious Kirk and the others have become his playthings. They soon realize that if they are to overcome Trelane and free themselves, they must locate and destroy his power source.

The Squire has watched Earth events from 1804 (Alexander Hamilton
's death, Napoléon Bonaparte
's Empire, etc.), which is said by various characters to be "900 years ago," suggesting that the show is taking place in 2704. This is contradicted elsewhere in the series, where the present date is given as sometime between 2100 and 2400. Eventually it was decided retroactively that this show takes place in 2267. See more
