Prime Timeline
(The root of all realities)

Lazarus was a scientist who discovered how to travel to a parallel universe. Unfortunately, it proved to be an "antimatter universe," with an opposite charge to the Prime Timeline. When Lazarus arrived, he inadvertently caused a reaction that devastated both his homeworld and its counterpart, leaving both lifeless. His counterpart, driven mad by the experience, took it upon himself to destroy the "monster" that he blamed for his world's destruction. His ship was capable of traveling both in time and space, as well as between universes, and he was chased by his counterpart for many years. The two met briefly in a negative magnetic corridor between realities before switching places in each reality, and fought one another each time. Lazarus, with Captain Kirk's help, trapped himself and his counterpart in the corridor, saving both realities but condemning the men to an eternal battle.[1]
