Prime Timeline
(The root of all realities)

Stardate 6770.3: A hyper-accelerated alien ship drags the Enterprise into a nova and both arrive in a universe where time flows backwards.

Commodore Robert April, the first captain of the Enterprise, and his wife, Sarah, the ship's first Chief Medical Officer, are aboard the starship once again to journey to Commodore April's retirement ceremonies. When an alien craft speeds past, Captain Kirk attempts to stop the other vessel with a tractor beam — which results in the Enterprise being pulled straight into a nova. Both vessels arrive in a parallel universe where everything is reversed, and even time flows backward, causing everyone aboard to start getting younger. The explorer who drew the Enterprise into this universe, Karl Five, offers to return the ship to its own reality, but the Enterprise personnel have all become children. April, now a healthy young man in his thirties, resumes command. After they reach normal space, Commodore April and his wife place the Enterprise crew into the transporter, which rematerializes them and returns them to their proper ages, and the Aprils both elect to return to their proper age as well. Considering April's performance, the Federation Council decides to review the mandatory retirement age.
