Iowa's Guardian of Forever

"A question. Since before your sun burned hot in space, and before your race was born, I have awaited ... a question." STOS, Ep. 28.

While not quite the time portal portrayed in science fiction, this gate mimicks the Guardian's distortion of time. By remaining chained and locked for years the Guardian has kept this wooded area secure from development. But for how long as the property is nearing sale.

Before leaving this 42N country relic it seemed to say, "Time has resumed its shape. All is as it was before," and added, "Many such journeys are possible. Let me be your gateway." Know that.


  1. Yeah, but did you jump over the portal? It might have made for a more interesting post, what with depression era soup lines, Edith Keeler and Germany taking over the world. Just don't forget to take your stone knives and bearskins (and a small block of platinum, 3 or 4 pounds should be sufficient).

  2. A closer examination of the photo reveals barbed wire and chains in the general leaping area. Good thing my tricorder was running as to pinpoint when McCoy jumps. Masa out.
