Name that episode, please


My boss' husband was an assistant film editor on the OS and has in his possession original film cells where he and other special effect folk hand stenciled effects on the film. He wants to get rid of the film and so I'm posting one of the collection on ebay. The only problem is I'm not familiar with this specific episode. The scene depicted is one where Chekov is holding a phaser and gets attacked by a large man in blue. The man then takes the phaser, knocks Chekov out, and proceeds to shoot two captured men. Notable aspects: Chekov seems to be wearing a sash of some sort and on the red door in the background is the symbol of a sword piercing a world (it appears to be Earth, as Africa and Europe are pictured).

If anyone could give me the name of this episode I would be eternally grateful.

Although I'm not sure, my best guess would be Mirror, Mirror. The symbol you described sounds like the symbol of the Terran Empire.

Definitely Mirror, Mirror. In this scene, Chekov, accompanied by three of his henchmen, one dressed in blue, has pulled a phaser on Kirk and is about to kill him. Then the one in blue turns on Chekov and attacks him in order to curry favor with Kirk. Kirk rewards him with a punch to the face that knocks him unconscious.

From a transcript of the episode:
CHEKOV: Deck five, sir?
(As Kirk leaves the lift, someone punches him in the face and he is grabbed.)
CHEKOV: (holding a phaser on Kirk) So you die, Captain, and we all move up in rank. No one will question the assassination of a captain who has disobeyed prime orders of the Empire.

Captain's log, supplemental. I command an Enterprise where officers apparently employ private henchmen among the crew, where assassination of superiors is a common means of advancing in rank.
(Suddenly, one of Chekov's men turns against him, taking his weapon and shooting another. Kirk throws his final assailant and he gets zapped into molecules too. The turbolift opens and two armed men come out.)
MAN: Your men, Captain. Easy, Farrell. I did your job. Ask the captain.
KIRK: Yes, he did your job.
FARRELL: Smart boy, switching to the top dog.
KIRK: Get him out of here.
MAN: Mister Chekov was going to make me a chief. You could make me an officer.
KIRK: All right. You're working for me.
MAN: A commission?
KIRK: You're in line. You might even make captain.
MAN: Yes, sir.
(Kirk punches him.)
KIRK: Not on my ship.
EDIT: Video of the scene is at about the 13:50 mark here.

Definitely Herbert. Maybe.

See images from that scene here.
As for literary criticism in general: I have long felt that any reviewer who expresses rage and loathing for a novel or a play or a poem is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae or a banana split. ~ Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
