Re: TOS's largest one time prop.

^Indeed, the whole reason TOS did so many Earth-duplicate alien cultures was to save money by reusing props, costumes, set pieces, etc. from previous productions. Roddenberry specifically wrote it into his series pitch in order to convince network executives that the show would be affordable to make. So it's a safe bet that most of the stuff we see that's based on some historical Earth culture is pre-existing material, at least partly.
