Sam (Scott Bakula leaps into Al as a young Ensign accused of raping and murdering his commanding officers wife. Assuming he's there to get Al (Dean Stockwell out of a jam, Sam actually changes the future when he tells his alibi not to speak to his defense lawyer. Whereas the charges were dropped originally, Ziggy says there's now an 81% chance Al will be convicted and sent to the gas chamber. The commanding officer, Dirk Riker (Charles Rocket), seems to have it in for Al, even though he knows he's innocent and knows that Al is one of the few men his wife Marci didn't sleep with. When the probability of Al being executed reaches 100%, Sam finds that Al has been replaced by Edward St. John V (Roddy McDowall) because Al was in fact executed. A cigar butt in Al's Corvette is all Sam needs to prove his innocence.
