Episode 3.8: For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

Canonically, Natira is actually considered to be McCoy's wife from this point on. Talk about a long-distance relationship.

We know Spock is a genius, but he just happens to be able to read some random 10,000-year-old dead civilisation's writing?
