Patterns of Force (TOS). It's very odd seeing two Jewish actors pretending to be Nazis. :-/
Yeah, at one point Spock even says something to Kirk along the lines that his SS uniform looks better than his Wehrmacht one. I found that disconcerting. I also greatly dislike the episode for perpetuating the myth that the Third Reich was a particularly 'effective' state which just isn't true if you define effectiveness in any useful way (regarding economics and administration).
I usually chalk it up to the idea that it was only about 20 years since the events of WWII had completely died down, and that there were still strong holdovers from the propaganda machine.
