Added DiffLines:

* FaeriesDontBelieveInHumansEither: [=McCoy's=] response to Edith Keeler's understandably skeptical reaction to his drug-induced delirious mumblings about who he is: "That's all right. I don't believe in you either." (In fact, he initially dismisses his whole situation as some kind of Cordrazine-induced hallucination.)

* AmericaSavesTheDay: Implied that this happened in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, since America staying out of the war in Europe apparently allows Germany to defeat both Britain and Russia.

[[JustifiedTrope Somewhat justified as the Nazis develop nuclear weapons as a result and that's not good for anybody.]]

Added DiffLines:

* TheStoryThatNeverWas: The episode ends with this trope {{implied|trope}}, the crew find themselves on Earth in the 30's after [=McCoy=] ends up accidentally drugged and falls through a mysterious portal, which causes the Enterprise to disappear. While they look for him, they meet a beautiful woman who they eventually realise became a peace activist who delayed America's entry into WWII just long enough to lead to a BadFuture. Kirk is forced to grab [=McCoy=] when he moves to prevent her from being run over while crossing the road (as presumably happened with Bones present, but not Kirk).

* GaussianGirl: Edith Keeler is exceptionally blurry in all close-ups, even by ''Star Trek'' standards.

In the penultimate episode of the first season (based on a treatment by Creator/HarlanEllison), the crew of the ''Enterprise'' finds itself exploring a [[NegativeSpaceWedgie "temporal disturbance"]] near an unknown planet. Electromagnetic interference causes the ship's computer to explode, injuring Sulu. [=McCoy=] runs to prepare an injection of super-adrenaline for him, but turbulence causes him to [[IntoxicationEnsues accidentally inject himself]] and become BrainwashedAndCrazy. [=McCoy=] escapes the bridge and beams down to the planet.
