Shatner has often chosen either this, or " The Devil in the Dark " as the best episode, saying "'City' is my favorite of the original Star Trek series because of the fact it is a beautiful love story, well told. For the franchise's 30th anniversary, it was ranked as the best Star Trek episode. They said that having Kirk allow Keeler to die was "horrifying and heart-rending, adding another dimension to his character.
Zack Handlen of The A. Club gave the episode an 'A' rating in , describing it as "a justly revered classic". But he said that McCoy's accidental overdose was a "stretch" and gave the episode "a surprisingly awkward start, with little indication of the greatness that is to follow. Handlen suggested that it would have made a better final episode of the season, instead of "Operation: Annihilate".
They were concerned that the episode might not live up to the memory when they re-watched it, but said "it remains an incredible episode, often imitated but rarely surpassed in science fiction in any medium. Keith DeCandido gave the episode a rating of ten out of ten when he reviewed it for Tor. He said that the episode centered on people, which he saw as a common theme among the great episodes of Star Trek. DeCandido supported the view of Spock, that while Keeler's compassionate nature was to be applauded, it was at the wrong time and as war with Nazi Germany was the only way.
However, he criticised it as well, saying "complete crock of pseudo-scientific claptrap. But he felt that it was fearless in comparison to modern science fiction, in that there was no attempt to make it self-aware, nor introduce a comedic character to ground it. Franich said that the ending was "one of the all-time great moments in Star Trek history". It said "This beautiful story poignantly establishes the maxim later explored in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan : the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, or the one.
Kirk's reaction before beaming up at the end of the episode is one of William Shatner's most moving moments in all of Trek. TV included it on a list of ten episodes to watch prior to the launch of the television series , calling it "one of the most heartbreaking episodes" of the series.
In , SciFiNow ranked this the number one best episode of the original series. In , The A. Club ranked this episode as one of the top ten "must see" episodes of the original series. In , Newsweek ranked "The City on the Edge of Forever" as one of the best episodes of the original series.
In , W. In , Vox rated this one of the top 25 essential episodes of all Star Trek. In , Comic Book Resources ranked this the 10th best romantic relationship of the Star Trek franchise up to that time, between Kirk and Edith Keeler. In , PopMatters ranked this the second best episode of the original series. In , Nerdist included this episode on their "Best of Kirk" binge-watching guide. Justman later said that the submission of the original unfilmed version was out of spite,  and Roddenberry said in response to the victory "many people would get prizes if they wrote scripts that budgeted out to three times the show's cost.
Coon reportedly said at the time: "If Harlan wins, I'm going to die", and that "there are two scripts up tonight for the Writers' Guild Award, and I wrote them both. When he won, the Star Trek party rose to their feet and applauded, since they believed it would bring credibility to the series. Herbert Franklin Solow later recalled that this elation turned to horror when Ellison began talking about the interference of studio executives in the writing process, before holding aloft a copy of the original script and yelling "Remember, never let them rewrite you!

Larson claimed that it was Coon who had rewritten the original script and it was this version that was submitted to the Writer's Guild,  Ellison said that " pandas will fly out of Glen Larson's ass! He explained that as the credited writer, he had the option of which version of the script to submit to the Guild. This was based on the filmed version, and not Ellison's original.
But since the script remained credited to Ellison, he won the award once more. It was 25 years before another television program won that award again, the next occasion being for the episode " The Inner Light " from Star Trek: The Next Generation. However, he was not present.
Changes included an expanded field of ruins on the Guardian's planet, as well as updated visuals of the planet from space. Rossi explained that they sought to tie the purple cloth backdrop used in the original version into the redesign, but was concerned that the "giant purplish desert flats" as seen from space were instead misconstrued as oceans. During the period in which the script was being developed, Roddenberry asked Ellison for his help in saving the show. Ellison wrote on their behalf to the combined membership of the recent World Science Fiction Convention to ask them to write in to NBC in order to save the show.
Ellison said he felt used, while Roddenberry said he was being unfair and had unjustly condemned the episode, loudly and in public. However, this did not last. Roddenberry would go on to claim in an interview with Video Review magazine that Ellison wrote into the script that he had Scotty dealing drugs and when asked to remove it, Ellison claimed that Roddenberry had "sold out".
At no point in any of the versions of the outlines or scripts did Scotty ever deal or take drugs. Until he was approached by TV Guide in December , Ellison did not discuss the issues with the episode in print other than the introduction in Six Science Fiction Plays. He was reluctant to discuss it for the magazine, and in order to make them go away, asked for a sum of money that he believed was five times more than they had ever paid for an interview.
To his surprise, they agreed. So he wrote the article, which immediately generated a backlash from Star Trek fans. In his book, Harlan Ellison's The City On the Edge of Forever , Ellison claimed to have never received more than a "pittance" from working on the episode. Pay me! I'm doing it for the year-long disrespect and the money!
The Guardian of Forever, the time portal portrayed in the episode, is an irregular ring or torus shaped structure around 3 metres 9. Stillwell during the writing of the episode " Yesterday's Enterprise ". This would have seen a team of Vulcan scientists led by Sarek studying the Guardian, and accidentally travelling back in time to the history of their planet where they cause the death of Surak , the founder of Vulcan logic. After they return, they discover that their people had allied with the Romulans and were at war with the Federation.
In response, Sarek elects to return to the past and take on the role of Surak to restore the timeline. The Guardian appears in two non- canon Star Trek series. In the second, Star Trek: New Voyages , a much larger Guardian through which a starship can fly is seen.
The Guardian of Forever has also appeared in several Star Trek novels.

The first appearance was in Star Trek: The New Voyages , a compilation of short stories which was the first anthology of Star Trek fiction. The short story "Mind Sifter" by Shirley S. Maiewski saw Captain Kirk stranded on s Earth in a mental hospital, having been abducted by Kor , subjected to a Klingon mind sifter, and transported through the Guardian of Forever. There they discover that the subject of Spock's romantic liaison, Zarabeth, had died years before but she had given birth to his son, Zar.
Peter David decided to base his novel Imzadi on the same premise as the end of Ellison's version of "The City on the Edge of Forever", except in this case it was William Riker who went back in time using the Guardian deliberately to save the life of Deanna Troi. He felt that if Ellison was not allowed to use the idea in the episode, he could instead feature the premise in a novel.
Brett Hudgins short story Guardians was featured in the seventh volume of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds in ,  an annually published work of fan stories. In Provenance of Shadows , the installment of the trilogy based on McCoy, part of the book is based in the reality where McCoy is trapped in the past and no-one comes to rescue him.

Goodman ; the author said that the effects of the episode and the loss of Keeler would affect Kirk for a long time and may have been why the character never entered into a serious ongoing relationship. Ellison worked alongside IDW on the comic, with artwork by J. Woodward and additional writing by Scott Tipton and David Tipton. Ellison said of the format, "To read a graphic novel is to engage your imagination is to engage all five of your senses, and to picture what the creator dreamed. In the massively multiplayer online role-playing game Star Trek Online , the mission "City on the Edge of Never" involves the player character using the Guardian to travel through time to to stop Klingons intent on altering history.
The episode features the USS Kirk , and has the Guardian projecting a time portal into space, allowing the player to take their vessel through to the past. It featured voice acting by Nimoy, and was well received by reviewers with Kotaku writer Mike Fahey saying "This mission might have just made the entire game for me. Everything about it was simply perfect. If Star Trek Online fails for some reason, this mission will always be remembered. Kirk's final line in the episode, "Let's get the hell out of here" caused problems for the crew as the network did not want the word "hell" to appear in television episodes.
Both Shatner and Roddenberry fought for the line to remain, with Roddenberry claiming to NBC that no other word would be suitable to be used instead. The studio executives agreed that it could be left in. While many sources claim "The City on the Edge of Forever" was the first instance of the word "hell" being used as profanity on television, it had been done before, as early as the November 25, Route 66 episode "Legacy For Lucia. The episode was also the first time that the Nazis were mentioned in Star Trek.
They would go on to be featured more prominently in the second-season episode " Patterns of Force " as well as a pair of two-part episodes, one each from other Trek franchises: one from Star Trek: Voyager as " The Killing Game " and the other from Star Trek: Enterprise as " Storm Front ". When a Star Trek film was being developed in the late s, one of the ideas proposed by Roddenberry was to have the crew travel back to the s and prevent the assassination of John F. This idea was based on "The City on the Edge of Forever," due to the episode's popularity among fans by that time.

Marvel Studios has eight release dates set for untitled Marvel Cinematic Universe movies after Captain America will have to take a stand and fight for what he believes in - even if it hurls him down the road to civil war. Marvel's Doctor Strange follows the story of the talented neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange, who, after a tragic car accident, must put ego aside and learn the secrets of a hidden world of mysticism and alternate dimensions.
Based in New York City's Greenwich Village, Doctor Strange must act as an intermediary between the real world and what lies beyond, utilizing a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After saving the known universe once already, you'd think Peter Quill, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and a sapling Groot would be sitting pretty.
But nothing is ever easy for the Guardians of the Galaxy. After wrapping up their heroic and totally altruistic guardianship of expensive resources for the Sovereign, Rocket slips back into old habits and steals a couple. You know, for fun. Just like that, the Guardians are back on the run, and Yondu and his Ravagers are looking to cash in on the bounty.
Their survival depends on the godlike figure who calls himself Ego - and claims to be Peter's father. Family is important, but for the Guardians of the Galaxy, it could be the difference between life and death. There were some changes made in these adaptions.
