"Turnabout Intruder" last episode of "Star Trek" aired 1969

June 3, 1969, "Turnabout Intruder", the last episode of the original "Star Trek" series, aired.  It had been initially set to air March 28, but the network preempted it to cover Dwight D. Eisenhower's death.

The episode's date is 2269, four years before the events in "Star Trek: The Motion Picture", which are set in 2273.  Nurse Chapel's hair is brown and Lt. Uhura doesn't even appear.
