    There's just one question left for me:

    Can someone confirm what Proconsul Claudius Marcus shouts to his stormtroopers when he orders them to attack Kirk and company in their prison cell? I've never been able to make it out.

    This transcription thread quotes Proconsul as shouting "Swords only!" I'm not doubting that; I would just appreciate confirmation.

    The scene after that where Captain Merrick whips out a Starfleet communicator and calls for help, to be fittingly stabbed in the back, and then tosses the talkie into the cell to save Kirk's bacon, is one of my all-time favorites. This ep is seriously underrated. It puts the "classic" in "classic STAR TREK".

    This episode has the distinction of being played the least in my market when I was a child. I grew up on reruns of Star Trek. But for every one time that I saw this episode, I saw all of the others probably five or six times. Weird.

    I guess we'll have to wait for the next one. Fortunately, there are plenty of episodes to go.;)

    Regarding this moment:

    I'm surprised, with the wacky senses of humor we've got in this mad group of transcribers, that someone didn't post the following:

    Kirk: Stand back. (Shatner is picked up and ran back across the set by Ted Cassidy)

    Shatner: Hey! I don't know about you, but this is not the way it should work! I want you to know!!

    :guffaw:

    Hey, LeadHead, I'm quite tied up with something right now. Instead of you all getting tired of waiting and deciding to go on with out me, can I just officially hand this one off to you and have you take care of the proceedings to choose a new chooser and start the next thread? :)
