The Star Dispatch

The Star Dispatch was a New York City newspaper that was in circulation in the 1930s. It was published daily.

While reviewing an altered timeline on his tricorder in 1930, Spock happened across the front page from a February 23rd 1936 issue of The Star Dispatch. On that page, he found a photograph of Edith Keeler, along with an article that featured her meeting with President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The same issue also featured reports of the mayor and the city council debating the budget and the city planning board and zoning commission decreasing the lot size in Rincon terrace.
