** I'm going into WMG territory here, but maybe the Guardian either marked them somehow or gave them some kind of tracking device (that we were not told about) before they entered the gate. So the Guardian knew, where they were, and could pull them back any tine, but needed them to find McCoy, who got lost.

** That was probably just Chekov's personal quirk.

*** I didn't write the comment you are replying to, but I thought that I would give my two cents. One of the more controversial debates in certain quarters of the LGBT community over the years is whether it is right or wrong for heterosexuals to have any sort of fantasy or fetish for gays or lesbians - I believe that may be the sort of sentiment being got at here. I personally do not agree as I think that having fantasies and fetishes is all very well and good as long as no one is harmed by it, but I suppose some people think that the image of the LGBT community is being harmed by the portrayal of homosexual love purely for the enjoyment of the heterosexual viewer. On the flip side of course, the amount of heterosexuals (men in particular) who find the concept of the same sex finding them attractive disgusting, it seems that there must be similar discussions on both sides in different forms for different reasons.

*** So representations of homosexuality that turn on (these specific) straight women are innately illegitimate? Is that what you're saying?

[[folder: Going Back to the Future]]
* After Edith Keeler's death, how did Kirk, Spock and McCoy get back to the 23nd Century? Did the Guardian of Forever transport them back after the last 30s scene. And if they Guardian could just pull people back, since there's no way they could have made it to the planet it was on in the 1930s, why didn't the Guardian just bring McCoy back before he changed anything?

* How did Kirk not know that his best friend Spock's father was a famous ambassador? Even if Spock never told him due to their estrangement, surely that info would be in Spock's Starfleet record, which Kirk should have seen as Spock's commandeering officer.
