Hundreds of years prior to 2266, a meteorite collided with the planet Metamorpha and penetrated to its core, bringing about rapid chemical changes. The planet was stabilized when Spock had an atomic missile carrying certain chemicals fired into the core. (TOS comic: "The Peril of Planet Quick Change")
