The City That Works on The Edge of Forever


Separated at birth? The Hadid Pavilion in Chicago's Millennium Park.

on the Time Planet.


A classic episode, in which Doctor McCoy is accidentally flung back in time to the Great Depression where he convinces young Richard Joseph Daley to quit running with the Irish gangs and go into politics...changing the course of world history forever, and causing Harlan Ellison to kill Gene Roddenberry in a knife fight in the men's room of Doctor Hogly Wogly's Tyler Texas Bar B Que on June 10, 1967 for "changing my script you fucking mamzer!"
