Great scenes with no regulars....

Just watched Who Mourns for Adonais? and was once again reminded how I enjoy episodes where the guests interact with each other without the regulars involved.

3 key scenes in "Mourns" between Apollo and Palamas without which the episode doesn't work.

Also WNMHGB, with it's scenes between Dehner and Mitchell, I really love.

Of course to have such scenes you have to have at least two major guest stars which is fairly rare.

I can think of just a couple more----Zephram and Hedford/Companion, Rom commander & Centurion.

Anybody have any other scenes they like of this type?

The fight between Decker and the security guard (Ens. Montgomery) before decker steals the shuttlecraft and meets his fate, giving Kirk the idea on how to defeat the Planet Killer.


Seems Kirk wasn't the only starship captain who knew how to fight.

Right, I was only thinking of dialogue scenes, but thanks for reminding me of an action scene of this type.
I have always admired that scene.

I have been running the episodes thru my head and there really are not all that many. I could say Khan & McGivers, but I don't like those scenes despite their importance to the episode.

Dr. Helen Noel (our favorite female gueststar) and her fight scene in the powerplant with the security guard. He thinks he's got her and she kicks him into the power bus. Turning him into one crispy critter.

If it counts (they weren't series regulars when it aired on TV), Pike and Boyce in "The Menagerie".

Yes, great scene, but as far as I am concerned those were scenes written for regulars--even if the pilot didn't get picked up.

Need I mention Gary Seven, Roberta, and Isis? Although, of course, that was a special case.

Beyond that, Amanda and Sarek have a nice scene together in "Journey to Babel." "You showed pride in your son," etc.

Apparently Spock never apprenticed as an electrician, as he switches the main breaker for the base back on without knowing why it had been turned off in the first place, which indirectly ends up killing Dr. Adams.

When in doubt, throw the switch. Its logical.

Anytime Spock makes a boneheaded move, it can be easily explained as the inconvenient influence of his human half.

Or not having his brain hooked up properly after Spock's Brain, should the boneheadedness take place in season 3.

I initially read this as 'kicked him "in" the power bus.' Ouch.

Miranda Jones has a good scene with Larry Marvick in "Is There in Truth No Beauty." Diana Muldaur and David Frankham.

I also like the scene with Flint and Rayna in "Requiem for Methuselah." James Daly and Louise Sorel. I love Louise Sorel in this episode. She probably inspired my love of fembots in general, along with Jean Marsh on The Twilight Zone.

Example #1 Yep, the fact that it was basically a pilot itself is the reason I didn't list those scenes with Seven and Roberta.

Example #2 Good call. It briefly crossed my mind but now that you mention it--it certainly qualifies.

Two more good ones--I agree and from the script I read--"Requiem..." has more cut than nearly any other episodes---maybe 60 lines of dialogue---so maybe there was more of Flint/Rayna as well---I forget.

I agree with moody atmosphere in "Devil...", but the two guys in "Tomorrow..." do nothing for me as far as great or memorable.

There was a scene in "Taste of Armageddon between Sar and Anon, in Anon's quarters that was cut too. So maybe there were some other scenes from non-regulars that got cut that we never saw.

A lot of non regular's lines were cut from the movies.
