On April 3, 1855, Montgomery Scott materialized in southern California via the use of the time travel cabinet. He appeared within a stagecoach just before it was robbed. He joined Billy Clancey and his outlaw gang in order to track down a stolen weapon called the N-cycle bomb, but Clancey stole Scott's phaser and used it to attack a wagon train. The trail for the bomb dead-ended with a patent medicine salesman in a frontier town, and then Scott was returned to 2266.

On April 3, 1955, James T. Kirk materialized in southern California one hundred years later on the same spot as Scott. He appeared in a movie production being shot on location in a desert. Kirk was filmed as he pursued time traveler Andres on a highway on ancient Roman chariots by Hollywood director Bovrille. Kirk returned Andres and the N-cycle bomb to 2266.
