In the fan favorite DS9 episode "Trials and Tribble-ations," the Department of Temporal Investigations laments over James T. Kirk having the largest record of temporal violations on file; seventeen to be exact. We might not have seen all of them on screen, but Kirk did indeed often find himself in time periods that were not his own.

In this episode of Standard Orbit, hosts Ken Tripp and Zach Moore take the time to travel through Kirk and co.'s many escapees across the space time continuum, the mechanisms that brought them backward and forward through time, and the various schools of thought on time travel itself.
