Based on an attempt I made years back, this edit accelerates the pace of the episode in line with the accelerated aging we witness!

One of the few TOS episodes where speeding up the pace probably works.

Editing Details:
Opening titles have been shortened; opening credits now replace first few moments of teaser.

I thought this was a very enjoyable edit that really tightened up one of my favorite episodes, going all the way back to childhood. Warlord drops a couple of plot points that contributed nothing of value.
Highly recommended for fans of the original series!
