Hilariously, in TOS episode Catspaw, the entire command team gets captured during an Away mission, leaving a random Redshirt in charge of the Enterprise.

It's actually that the rhesus monkey has the closest DNA structure to man. I actually didn't catch what species it was either but probably rhesus.

Ah, but they couldn't do that.

Don't forget, no matter what they did, the events of time would play themselves out and time would self correct in that show. They might cause changes, but those changes were counteracted by other events that caused things to happen as they always had.

Any alterations to the past were usually them fulfilling what eventually was the future all along.

A better choice then is a flying DeLorean. Each trip Marty McFly took through time ended up skewing the time line.

Or the gate in Millennium; each change in the past caused a paradox that would be felt in the present as a "time quake".

The sleds in Timecop could also be used for altering the present by changing the past, but without the risk of a "time quake".

Even the sphere in Seven Days could be used to transport an operative back 7 days into the past to change the present, but going back further wasn't possible, so it wouldn't have helped this plague at this late date.

My very humble setup:
Man Cave:Vizio E500i-A1 "Smart TV" (50-in 1080p 120Hz LED/LCD, has Netflix app.), Blu-ray players (Sony BDP-S3100, old LG BD390), Roku (the original model: N1000), PC (Windows 7), Comcast Internet (25Mbps/5Mbps).
Bedroom:LG 32LV3400-UA TV (32-in 768p 60Hz LED/LCD), HD DVR (Motorola RNG200N), Xfinity Comcast cable (Digital Starter Package), DVD/VHS player.

Well, there's a new '12 Monkeys' series in production right now for next season, so somebody else has that story covered.

I think folks these days get carried away about the importance to weight control and good health of some foods and the danger of others. When I was a kid my mother preached that I could eat whatever I wanted as long as I didn't eat too much. Now, these mumble mumble years later, that advice still seems sound to me.

Now back to our show!

The NYTimes nutrition editor boils it down to 8 words: Eat real food, not too much, mostly vegetables. Doctors also recommend getting a moderate amount of daily exercise. And, as brother Keenan advised earlier, stay away from "white" foods - sugar in all its forms and simple carbohydrates - as much as possible & practical.

There you have it - the recipe for a long, lean and healthy life. And my last word on the subject lest it raise anyone's blood pressure. That's unhealthy.

Jonathan Mostow (U-571) directed the pilot. Would be great if he does the Season 2 opener as well.

Give it time...it could STILL be the last ship. We don't know what ultimately happens to the Russian cruiser yet.

I watched tonight's episode in almost real time. Because the whole thing was set on the ship and the attention to military detail was as wonderful as usual, I loved it and got back onboard (literally and figuratively ). The NATHAN JAMES is the real star of this show, so I hope the showrunners keep it in mind

Not sure how they make fresh water on the Nathan James class but the skipper was certainly not taking a Navy shower at the beginning.

We had steam powered evaporators on the guided missile destroyers I was on. When one of those went down, we went on water hours and salt water showers since the boilers had to have fresh water.

I can imagine how hot it must have been with circle William set and full CBR suits on.

They talked about the water reclaimer and recycler plus they clearly said they convert sea water.

Also, the shower he was taking was the decontamination shower they each go through when they come back and get tested.
